"I cannot give high enough praise to
Chimney for the work they did. First of all, the day I received a phone call from a scheduler from the company within FIVE" MINUTES of making an online request for chimney repair. They were always punctual and professional,
inspected our chimney and boiler in the basement, as well as the chimney coming outside He gave us a MUCH better quote than other people who had been by the quote us. The highest one was $3400! That particular company said our chimney was too short and would need an extra three layers of brick, which would add an extra $1000 to the total price.
could tell just by looking at the chimney from the outside that it was plenty tall enough, and was already up to code. The day they completed the work they showed up a little early (it was fine with us, we didn't want to spend a Saturday around the house waiting anyway!), and were done within three hours. And they cleaned up everything! Overall a great job done at a great price. Will definitely use them again if need be.

"They worked with us the home owners and the HVAC company to figure out the best plan to make our house safe and efficient. They arrived on time, communicated well and cleaned up after themselves.

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.

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.

It didn't take long to figure out, I was being solicited to put a new roof on. Honestly, my roof is not that bad at all. It just passed an insurance survey re-inspection as AOK. I am still waiting for my estimate to

point my chimney. Obviously, this must not be their bread & butter job or I am sure I would have had the estimate months ago.

I was in the
Saint Charles Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
for some chimney repair and had been shopping pretty hard, I was also looking to get my roof done since the chimney repair was going to damage a lot of my roof being rebuilt. I had planned to do the gutters myself, but was asking each contractor for a quote just so I'd have it.

I received lots of quote, and
Saint Charles Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
came in about 30% higher than some of the others but he was also the only "full service" contractor I had spoken to. Everyone else either did roofs or chimneys, not both. I asked
Saint Charles Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
why he was so much more expensive because I like to give contractors a
Saint Charles Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
to explain their pricing, justify it, and make sure I'm comparing to bids "apples to apples" so to speak.

After listening to
Saint Charles Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
explain why his bid was higher and actually going and looking at job's he did as well as jobs some of the other contractors did, I quickly saw that the extra money was for the quality of service
Saint Charles Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
provided. A few examples include: soldering of all flashing joints for a permanent solution versus caulking which can wear out and needs maintained; a different type of crown on the chimney (called a
Saint Charles Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
crown); forming flashings in such a way that water runs into gutters and not down chimney face; installing a ridge behind the chimney to prevent water buildup behind it, and many other small details.

When I asked other contractors about these types of things, they all agreed that they are good things and said they could do them (for more money). What bothered me about this was that they didn't ever mention these items themselves. It was as if they would prefer to just "get the job" and didn't care whether it was done the best it could be or not.
Saint Charles Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
, on the other hand, didn't want to the job if he wasn't doing it the best.

In the end I went with
Saint Charles Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
. Both his roofing and chimney crew were very professional and courteous. They brought dump trucks with them each day to the house and loaded their debris so that I didn't have an ugly dumpster sitting at my home all week. Everything was done with care and I honestly never found a single roofing nail on the ground after they left.

His roofing crew did leave a little bit of material and scrap at my house when they were done, but as soon as I mentioned it to
Saint Charles Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
he brought his crew back out to retrieve them and apologized for the oversight.

Overall, I am extremely satisfied with the jobs
Saint Charles Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
completed for me and would definitely recommend him.

I signed up for my chimney to be cleaned and the guys were prompt to get in touch and respond. During the cleaning they alerted me to an issue I was aware of but kept putting off. The original chimney chase was in poor shape and needed to be reworked. It stung like heck having the work done but it's fire, so, fire. I was thoroughly impressed that the guys went above and beyond when installing the new chase. I watched them from the window while they caulked every nook and cranny on the entire chimney exterior, and nailed in every nail within reach on the roof. He even bought me a little time by applying clear silicon to an area on the chimney that was suffering from water damage from the roof. Also they trimmed back some branches that were getting close to the top. Top notch guys right there.

Inspector arrived early, which was great. He covered open area to chimney with plastic and also flooring in front of fireplace for protection. He cleaned chimney and let us know there was no issues. He gave us information that was also emailed to us with information on the inspection that was performed. Total inspection was under around an hour from the time he arrived to the time he left. I would contact them if I needed any repair.

We first met
Saint Charles Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
roofing at the home show in January and spoke with them about our chimney needing to have some rotten wood replaced. They contacted us again a several weeks later and we got their quote and decided we would use them. They were not the most expensive nor the least but on the upper end. Exceptionally nice on the phone and through email. After getting dates set the gentleman showed up on the Monday to do the work he explained his helper had left and it may take a little longer but he would be done by the end of the week which was fine as we weren't really pressed for time. After he had demoed some of the wood and gotten to the inside of the chimney he called my wife and I so we could see some of the damage on the inside of the chimney and was telling us we should consider having a vapor
Saint Charles Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
installed also but that it would cost extra. I guess he didnt read the contract as it included a vapor
Saint Charles Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
along with replacing the wood. The under boards were in pretty sad shape and he recommended us to replace them and I agreed so the the price went up, but we had agreed to replacing the boards with plywood. When the boards were actually replaced it was with OSB board not plywood. No biggie in my book. The exterior work was excellent and he did a fantastic job with paining and clean up and was truly a nice and friendly guy the whole time. However when all was said and done the part of the chimney that was inside my sunroom still has the old siding wood as it was not replaced.
While a little pricey and little much on the upsell it was quality work. However we won't be calling
Saint Charles Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
again for a bigger job. maybe for smaller jobs as the workman was exceptionally nice and knowledgeable.
