"We needed the chimney cleaned. We also have a new leak coming from the chimney on our second floor. We set up an appointment and they came today to do the work." They were on time, careful to cover things up, and cleaned everything before they left. Very professional job. Because of the snow they could not get up to see what was causing the leak from the chimney. We made an appointment for them to return in March to do that. I am not sure if we will use them to complete the repair. They attempted to sell us a stainless steel liner for our fireplace at a cost of $5,000. If the chimney repair is anything like price that we'll have to get several more bids. We have no interest in lining the chimney. We have a gas fireplace and there's no need for that.


"We renovated our house and needed a good amount of masonry work done. We were replacing 1 wall of brick with natural stone, repairing around a new window &" door as well as
pointing several cracks in the mortar throughout the house. I asked
for an estimate after getting 2 estimates that varied greatly in price (one was over $16k). He came out quickly and his bid was in the same range as the other bid and he was able to start the work the following week (which fit into our tight time frame). When it came to selecting the natural stone, he was familiar with the 2 stones we had selected to mix and offered a recommendation to not mix the stone and just use the one for a variety of reasons. The resulting stone is a great match for the house and we are extremely happy with how it looks. His crew was out and did a great job and kept the yard clean each day (cleaner than some of the "interior" contractors did). They worked quickly and did a great job.

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.




***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.

They did a very nice job. My fireplace looked like new. I had some trouble with the pilot light and now it works really well. They were very prompt. I have had them out since then to replace a chimney cap. I will use them again.
- Kathleen W.

Very neatly, all in professional manner - workers went right to work - no loafing. Foreman polite and instructive - anxious to explain process. Very pleased with job done.
- Donald C.

Overall the job went very well.
The estimator was on time and thorough. He also did the work once the new cap was available.
Amber, the office manager, worked with me to understand the type of cap we needed and I even visited the office to see a visual in person so I would have an idea of how the house would look with it installed. She was absolutely terrific all the way through.
The install and firebrick work went well. My chimney is tall and hard to reach, even from the roof, so leveling the cap required a longer ladder. They sent someone out 3 days later to do the final orientation and it looks great!
As a favor to me, when the installer wire brushed moss off the top of the chimney he added a moss treatment I provided to thoroughly
