"He arrived within
time block. He caled ahead of time to tell me his arrival time. He put on boot covers so he would not track in dirt. He" offered to change out the filter on the air cleaner. I had the filter on hand.

"We were not impressed with this service - they left a lot of soot and dirt both in the chimney and on the floor around the chimney. We had to use a shop vacuum" to clean up all the dirtiness that was left behind on our floor, and then had to mop after that. We just don't think they cleaned as thoroughly as we were
to believe they would. As for the inspection, it was fine and they did not try to upsell us or pressure us at all - one of the two things that they told us about we already knew we needed from our home inspection. The employees themselves were nice enough.

Chimneys

If you have a wood-burning fireplace, be sure to have it cleaned and inspected regularly to reduce the risk of fire. But be careful who you hire because chimney-repair scams are common.

John Pilger of the highly rated Chief Chimney Services in Smithtown, N.Y., says shady chimney companies target homeowners in his area.

How to avoid chimney repair scams

These scams lure homeowners via phone solicitations, door-to-door sales pitches or ads offering too-good-to-be-true prices.

Chimney sweep and fireplace inspection, cleaning
Chimney Sweep, Chimney Repair

Regular chimney inspection and cleaning helps prevent fires from creosote buildup and saves money on repairs. Here’s a look at what’s involved and the costs.

A chimney inspection covers every part of the structure, interior and exterior. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member David G. of Portland, Oregon)
Chimney Repair, Chimney Sweep

Chimneys, fireplaces and vents need to be inspected at least once per year. Even an unused chimney needs to be checked for possible animal nests or damage.

The exposed portion of your chimney receives more weather abuse than any other masonry on a building, says Bard. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Jane L. of Philadelphia)

By paying yearly attention to your chimney crown to catch issues early, you can save yourself costly chimney repairs and extend the life of your chimney.

Angie's Answers

Most all professional chimney sweeps now utilize the National Fire Protection  211 Standard for chimneys, fireplaces , Vents and solid fuel-burning appliances for chimney inspections, which determines when and whether he has to access the roof.

There are 3 levels of inspection  The most commonly performed are Level 1 and level 2  are listed:

Level 1            Done as Annual Inspection

                      Routine cleaning of the flue

                      Direct replacement of a similar appliance

Level 1 inspection is recommended for a chimney under continued service under the same conditions with the continued use of the same appliance.

IN A Level 1 inspection, your chimney service tech should examine the *READILY ACCESSIBLE portions of the appliance and the chimney connection. HE will be looking for basic Soundness of the chimney structure and flue as well as the basic appliance installations and connections. HE will also Verify that  the chimney is free of obstruction and combustible deposits.

* Readily accessible Means that no special equipment is required to gain such access, ie.Ladder

 

LEVEL 2            Upon sale or transfer of a property

                       After an operating malfunction or an external event is likely to have caused damage to the chimney

                        Addition or removal of one or more connected appliances, or the replacement of an appliance withone of a different type, a different input rting or a different efficiency.

                        Prior to relining or replacement of the flue lining

 

Level 2 insp. are required when any changes are made to the system. Changes can include a change of Fuel Type, changes in shape or material in the flue,Replacement or addition of an appliance of a disimilar type, input rating or efficiency. Building fires, chimney fire or other seismic events as well as weather events or obvious construction defects would be indicators that a level 2 is warranted.

 

Level 2 includes everything in a level 1 PLUS the *Accessible portions of the chimney exterior and interior including attic, crawl spaces and basements. it addresses proper clearances from combustible in accessible locations.There are no speciality tools required to open or access doors, panels, or coverings during a level 2 insp.  The level 2  insp should also include the visual inspection by video scanning equipment or by other means in order to examine the internaql surfaces and joints of all the flue liners inside the chimney structure. No removal or demolition or any permrnantely attached portions of the chimney or building structure or finish shall be required in a level 2 insp.

*ACCESSIBLE means if you can get to it with special equipment do it but you dont have to take apart anything for said access. Use of ladders and cameras just no demolition.

 

LEVEL 3  SEE NFPA 211 STANDARD FOR DETAILS

 

***THE REAL ANSWER to this question lies with the accessibility of the top of the chimney and roof type.  Most professional sweeps want to examine up close the top of the chimney for cracked masonry crowns , which is very common, Flashing issues, top view down flue, and for prefab chimneys to insp the condition of the Chase cover and cap.

Note that the use of a special tool (ladder) to gain access to the chimney is under a level 2 inspection, which can be additional costs since it is a much more thorough inspection.

It is possible to sweep and do a level 1 insp. without accessing the roof. 

 

Also most professional sweeps have equipment that allows us to sweep the chimney with a rotary system that is operated from inside at the fireplace opening and achieve a much better cleaning than pushing brushes down from the top and without getting on the roof. We also video scan the flue from the hearth so the homeowner can be a part of that inspection or "chimney-oscopy". They see the live action of the top of the chimney and conditions that exist inside their system so when they get their report they know they are not some stock pics that could be used to sell repairs but the actual pics of the conditions they viewed in their system. And we do not have to access the roof.

If the chimney access requires multiple ladders or is a "brush with death", there could be extra cost, and the sweep would make an onsite decision regarding the ability to safely reach the top of the chimney or have to use a lesser option of binoculars or rely on experience to determine whats going on up top based on visible symptoms,  if access is too dangerous or not possible.

 

So don't discount a sweeps knowledge or ability on whether he gets on the roof or not. Check him out on referral sites , company web site, credentials, training and experience. Get referals and check on liability insurance and you should be able to find a sweep that can meet your need. If you are in North Carolina check us out at ClassicChimney.com.

I joined Angie's List because I was searching for a mason to repair my chimney. Over the years, the bricks on my chimney were flaking away, and I thought it would be really hard to find a mason that would handle a small job like this. To my surprise, Angie's List had numerous companies from which I could chose! I picked three top-rated companies to quote, but settled on

because of their fair quote, knowledgable staff, and professionalism. They scheduled a date for the repair, but due to good weather over the entire summer, they were able to bump-up my date by a few weeks (which was awesome!). I let them pick the bricks, and the match was great! And, they provided "before" pictures with the quote, as well as "after" pictures when the job was complete, which contributed to my confidence in their work.

I called for a foundation inspection and to have some cracks repaired in my house. One guy came out, crawled under my house and seemed to do a thorough inspection including pictures of what he determined were faulty repairs from the previous contractor. After about two weeks, I finally get a written report indicating that the foundation expert was going to look at the pictures and get back to me. Fast forward a few more weeks. I contact try contacting the guy who did the initial inspection only to find out he is no longer with the company. I contact the foundation guy and he makes an appointment to come and do a re-inspection. Although he did come, he clearly was not comfortable coming to my neighborhood because it was during the time of the

unrest and he did not want to be anywhere near Leimert Park. This was in November 2014 and in December I emailed him to see what his estimate was. He emailed me back, said he thought he had sent me a report, apologized and I never heard from him again. He did however mention that he did not think this was something that I could present to my insurance company. Maybe that is why he never got back to me besides the fact that he did not want to be in the

was great to work with! We have very little experience with wood-burning fireplaces and wasn't sure what to expect when we decided to get our fireplace inspected and cleaned for the first time. It was great seeing the video of the chimney all the way to the top. He provided input as to what repairs were needed and what to prioritize as well as tips on how to use the fireplace. Great experience overall!

They never showed up, and never called. I called them and they had no idea who I was and weren't able to reschedule. The person I spoke to barely spoke english and said the people wouldn't even be back until Feb 4th. I want my money back. I took a day off work to have this done and I can't take another day off for them.

Plantation Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
, I gave him a call and he came right over to give us a quote on repairing our fireplace and chimney. He got the necessary supplies ordered and once they were received, he called to set up a time to do the job. He takes pride in doing all of his own work rather than having a team to dispatch on jobs. This way he knows the job gets done right.
He took his time and seemed to do very careful, quality work. He is a self proclaimed dog lover and didn't mind our 3 dogs roaming around and especially the
