"Very well. very communicative, had received am estimate earlier (by several months) and had held off work due to cost, but when we were ready to proceed, Boston" and their team came back and did a fine job, very clean and efficient and fast. The old unusable fireplace suddenly became a new center piece to the home...very pleased overall and would certainly have Boston back for any other backyard/brick projects. Fireplaces are essentially an accident waiting to happen if not placed in the hands of professionals who work very diligently to the fire codes, which Boston does. No cutting corners. Highly recommend this organization.

"The representative told me that it didn't seem as if the fireplace had been used, and that I should call to get a refund for part that was for cleaning. He" checked chimney and noted a small pulling away of the flashing to mention to contractor. Extremely honest and professional.

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 Carmel

The team from
Carmel Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
was prompt. Unlike many other companies I've worked with, they gave a one hour window of time they would arrive, and they called 15 minutes out and showed up about 15 minutes early! They are PROMPT! The leak allowed water into my attic crawlspace and it was seeping into the master bedroom. The team assessed the leak, and assessed the chimney in detail. They immediately discovered chimney lacked a liner - a serious problem from a safety standpoint. They offered a lifetime warranty that is transferable with the house. The liner was installed in under two hours and the work was high quality. The team cleaned up after the work was completed. The team assessed the chimney/roof seal and determined that some portions had failed and some portions had not been sealed at all. As the temperature was below freezing, using the preferred sealant material was not possible. The team applied a temporary fix and will return when the outside temperature is above freezing and finish the job. Outstanding service, prompt, courteous, and professional. A job well done!

filters and drop cloths when cleaning and virtually spotless clean up with no smells despite the vast amounts of soot and crud that were removed from the pre-fab 1991 fireplace, that to my knowledge had never been professionally cleaned.
The pricing was fair and honest and would definitely use again in future.

Initial appointment was on time. He explained the problem and the work to be done. We scheduled the job. He came on the day we agreed on. All work was completed in a timely manner. All debris was cleaned up. Job looked good. The price was the same as quoted. I didn't check around for prices. I assumed his was fair. The quality of his work was very good.

Had to call three times to see if he was coming. His defense(shorthanded) was a little upset when he appeared just getting out of bed. Used him before and felt his crew was more professional in 2012.

I called

's in to my new house to inspect the chimneys the day after we bought the home. For $99, they reviewed all chimneys in the house, including the dryer vent. They found that the tile liner from my furnace flu was damaged and unsafe to use. I scheduled with them and had them come out and replace the old tile flu liner with a new steel liner. The job turned out to be bigger than they expected, but they stuck to the original price quote. I was so impressed that I had them back out a few days later to clean and inspect the wood

All in all it went well. She was a bit late for the first visit, but explained the circumstances. She seemed to know her stuff and explained what the problem was and what needed to be done. It was a professional courtesy to let the insulation company get first dibs on the job required. Once they passed, she handled the job herself quite well. Her charges were more than reasonable .
We will be asking her to come back in the Spring for some caulking work on our garage.
