"The representative was very professional but the price was way too much. If I was unable to install the cover I probably would have researched with at least two" other estimates. The price uninstalled seemed reasonable to their estimated price as installed.

"Project – build walkway from driveway to front porch. Very poor quality, slap job. They poured concrete right on top of dirt – no excavation into the" ground, no gravel. Several stepping stones from previous sidewalk got half buried in concrete and sticking out from the side. The drain pipe was placed on a surface in shallow ditch (not even covered), where it was agreed should have been buried 3 feet into the ground. It looks like an eye sore sticking 4 inches above ground. Left construction garbage and lots of clean up for me to do. The list can go on and on. And even this poor job has not been finished, they promised to come back, but never did. It is not just bad, it is horrible. I feel deeply scammed. I was so outraged, I decided to give it a month to cool off before leaving comments.

Industry experts recommend an annual inspection and cleaning as needed, generally every year or two depending on how much use the fireplace gets.

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.

Some of the information regarding the repairs that they wer discussing was conflicting with the boiler function (it is a shared chimney). I got the feeling that the recommended repairs were not necessary - over 2 years later - it is still working fine with no issues.....

The team was great - on time (even a little early), courteous, and explained what they were doing and how they'd do it. One member on the roof was careful not to crack tiles, the other in the living room. There was no dust or mess, and the team was done in about an hour. A great experience.

Everything went great until a few weeks after install. . we realized the sliding cover for the

would not shut off properly in time with the thermostat reading. Long story short... We had to get a replacement

which took about 2 months. This was not the fault of

For the most part it went really well. Company came out and gave me a bid right away. Took pictures so I could see the damage without going on the roof. They have one person who does all of their chimney repair work apparently. He was very good, but very busy. Had to schedule out a couple of weeks which was okay. It said he would come at 1 p.m., but came at 6 p.m. But he did a really great job when he was here. Worth the wait! They were much more thorough then another company that gave me a bid. The other company totally missed the cracked tiles and loose bricks. I would hire them again, just anticipate a little wait. But worth it!

They did an excellent job. They also inspected the chimney and told me that I may need to have a lining put in eventually as a few of the tiles were coming loose. I appreciated that I didn't feel pressured to upgrade to more expensive services. They let me know that it could hold for years to come or if I wanted to be more proactive I could replace the tiles now.
