"It went well. The initial inspection was quick - a quick glance and he determined the problem. He returned at a later date to insert the new liner, and remove" the debris from the old clay liner. Very satisfied.

-Jim B.

"The N technician arrived promptly and immediately set to work laying out his drop cloth and equipment, ensuring a" swift and immaculate cleaning of the fireplace. Then, using the chimney sweep equipment, "swept" the chimney flue, examined the damper and even made a few safety recommendations, i.e. a fireproof rug for the hearth. N technicians are always efficient and friendly. I recommend them highly and use their services after every cord of wood is burned.

How to Avoid Chimney Repair Scams

Scams lure homeowners via solicitations, door-to-door sales pitches and ads offering too-good-to-be-true prices.

Chimney repair and maitenance

Chimney Repair

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.

Consider the pros and cons of installing an electric fireplace in your home.

An electric fireplace can give you that warm glow without a chimney or fireplace maintenance.

Are you ready to heat things up in your home by installing a fireplace?

The fireplace is often the centerpiece of the living and family rooms, but highly rated companies on Angie's List say a standard wood-burning fireplace loses most heat through the chimney.

Angie's Answers

The cost will be determined by the type and length and the connection made to the gas furnace. Type of liner is based on the acidic moisture output and the appliance afue rating. Highly efficient appliances will need a stainless alloy liner like AL29-4c which can cost retail $65/ft plus components for connection (another $150) plus labor $70/hr and taxes for 6 inch round. ($58/ft for 5" rd)

Less efficient systems (below 83% afue rating) can utilize aluminum vent pipe that comes as a kit for about $325, plus labor $70/hr. Basic installations can take 3-4 hours.

B-vent connections are commonly used with gas venting infront of connection to the vent or liner.

Most masonry chimneys cannot take the excessive moisture produced from todays high efficient gas systems and are often vented with pvc, by-passing the masonry chimney and exiting outside the foundation. If that is not possible then inserting either a AL49-c stainless or aluminum liner down the terra-cotta flue of the chimney designated for the furnace in order to make a connection at the appliance in the basement or crawl space.

Every system has its own challenges and set backs so average costs can change with install complexity and length of vent.

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 don't know if I was taken, but they said major stuff needed to be done.
They said we needed to re-line the chimney because inside it was cracked in a year or two for $2500
New gas logs and stuff $1350.00 I found it on amazon for one half the price
We bought the house one year ago, and my husband reminded me the home inspector ...More said nothing was wrong with the chimney.
I bought chimney sweep but was told I had major problems that would cost me thousands of dollars.

was very thorough and helpful. He removed the birds with no incident and also pointed out suggestions for proper chimney maintenance. He installed a new chimney cap and provided paperwork for a warranty I could mail in.

The technicians were punctual, did the work quickly and left the place clean. I was very satisfied with the overall service. They clearly explained the results of the inspection.

was excellent. He was neat, professional, and extremely knowledgeable.
He presented us with a detailed inspection report, including photos. We discussed all of the options and what we might need. As it turns out, we did not need any of the chimneys to be cleaned, so that service was not performed. ...More was able to answer our questions and generated a proposal for us.

The gentlemen showed up exactly at the time promised. They brought in all their equipment, as well as tarps to cover the floor and surrounding areas so that there would be as little mess as possible. They did their work quickly, very neatly & were extremely pleasant. They cleaned up the little bit of dust that fell onto the floor, and left no mess ...More at all. I was extremely happy with both their attitudes and work, and would definitely use them again.

gave us a fair estimate of the work, including the chimney, whose sorry state he found unacceptable and unsafe. We agreed on a date and a price and he stuck to both exactly.
My main concerns with having masonry work done were these: it's expensive and we won't be able to tell the difference. Yes, it was expensive ...More in terms of dollar-outlay, but the house looks a thousand times better. And I totally trust the work that they did.
There was minor damage to the interior plaster, but helped us to fix that.
We were very pleased with this work.

I gave him a $200 check that he said he would not deposit, but he said preferred they pay with cash when done. He missed the appointment on the Wed Oct. 21st of 2015. He called and said he was sick. He had already deposited the check. was the one who was supposed to do the work, but when the owner came over he on the approx. ...More the 30th he said would not be doing the work. He brought another guy that he said would be doing the work, but that was not the agreement, so I asked him to please send out. He said schedule was too full to put her back on it. He said " works with his head and not his body." When I brought the check up he said you the money after 3 days, even though it was their fault it was longer than that because they canceled. The owner then told me he would give me my money back at the end of the month cause that's when he does his bookkeeping. He has not responded to me at all since.

We have owned our house for seven years and have never had the chimney cleaned, so when Angie's list had a special offer we took advantage of it. A1 had good ratings with Angie's - but we didn't know what to expect. As promised, we were called the night before the appointment to confirm. I didn't get home from work until after 8 ...More p.m., but called anyway, expecting to leave a message. Nope, someone answered the phone (not a 'service' either - someone who could actually confirm my appointment) and we confirmed details.
The next morning, Bill called 30 minutes before arriving (as I was told he would do). He showed up, was friendly, put on booties, and examined the chimney on the inside. We shared that the last time we lit a fire, the smoke backed up into the room, and he immediately asked if we had had new windows or sliding glass doors installed (which we had). He explained that there was a pressure equalization issue and told us how to potentially fix it. He then grabbed a ladder and he and his colleague cleaned the chimney. They were in and out in 20 minutes or so - and left no indication at all that they had even been in the house.
They were smart, nice and knowledgeable, as well as being priced right. We're very satisfied!
