"This was an excellent purchase! Im glad I found them through Angies List because the last company I used was horrible at keeping appoinments and setting up appointments" they would call me for sales afterwards. This company was thorough and assisted in providing me with details on what needs to be taken care of. I will use them again.

"This was an
deal for $150. I needed a cap over one chimney we never ,use as critters set up a nest every year and make a lot of noise before" they final get their babies out into the world. They responded quickly and installed the cap. They left a detailed list of repairs they felt were needed on both chimneys but not a word about how dirty the flues were. I did not request this quote of other work, but I guess they were looking for more business and it was good to know about these issue. I actually wanted them to clean out on chimney we use often while they were here but they drove off before I could talk to them. Left bill and they got in car and left. I had prepaid for this deal so no money needed to be paid at the time. I need to get it done some time. They seemed to want to get the other business and were not interested in me when I seemed not interested. I thought about calling them back but figured I missed the opportunity to get a better dal while they were here.

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.

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)
Chimney Repair

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.

Chimney Repair reviews in Livonia

Rating
They replaced my roof in the past, and I used them again because I was very pleased with the quality of work they did on the roof. They're very professional and very responsive. Their work ethic was very good. There was a little lag time for them to come out and look at it, probably a couple of weeks, but it was the middle of winter, so I was understanding that. They came and looked at it and had to manufacture a new cap for my chimney. They were there that day and they came back on the weekend and they fixed it.

As requested, the service provider called 30 minutes ahead so that someone could be at the home to meet him. My husband was there and said that he was very professional and did a thorough job and answered any questions.

They were wonderful. Bill explained everything that they were going to do. I was very impressed. I am going to use them to install a new damper on my chimney when the weather gets better.

I think they went above and beyond. They did a really good job. We had a second house and they thought they were supposed to do that house as well and drove through rush hour traffic which I thought was really good. The person who let them in to do the job thought they did a good job. They also let us know that we need to a new chimney cover. The scheduling was good.

The tech measured the cap and inspected it. They verified that the chimney cap was still serviceable but would need replacing in about a year. The tech was at the home for about 2 hours and it felt good knowing that the leak was not coming from my chimney.

They are a great company. They were not able to do my original job, but they were able to do other work on the exterior of my chimney. I was very impressed with their work and I would definitely recommend this company to other members.

While scheduling was OK and they were responsive, they didn’t do the job and didn’t give me back my money after they indicated they would do this or issue a credit.
