"Excellent communication. Details well explained work performed in a timely manner

and his partner arrived early at the front end of our time window estimate, were pleasant, friendly, professional, and fine with our big" dog.. They quickly cleaned both of the chimneys without making any messes, told us the things we were doing right, and made recommendations of how we could repair certain small things ourselves without spending tons of money. We were very impressed with their work and attitude and it was a tremendously positive experience. We thought the price was fair, the time they spent was no inconvenience, and the fact that they took credit cards helped us out. We would definitely use this company again.

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)
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.

They were professional, clean and courteous. They went above and beyond to ensure things were done properly. We are planning on using them again this Summer for cleaning the chimney.

It was pretty fair. They were at my home for 2 days. They were looking at fascia and soffit boards. They sent 2 techs to take care of the problem. The final result turned out fine. I had them back out to paint the exterior of the house, and replace the siding on the chimney too.

We hired them not for price but because they were the only company that answered their phone. The scheduling and follow up, including arrival to our home was very prompt and professional. I was not home but my wife was. Very nice guy but my wife called and he asked to talk with me. He said he would not recommend using the fireplace because of the damper and some rust. He never did locate where the leak was coming from. I wanted them to replace the damper and patch any holes and cracks in the brick walls. He said there is nothing that can be done with the damper and wasn't sure if he had the product on his vehicle to fix the cracks. I told him that is what I had requested when I set up the appointment. He said he would check but that I could buy the filler at Home Depot. When I got home the cracks were not touched. After going to two Home Depots I had to order the product on line. Wasted of a couple hours of my time. Once I received the product it took me less than 5 minutes to repair, but frustrating since that is what I hired them for. I also found an easy fix for the damper online for under $50 which I would have paid to them if they offered it. Their technician said there was NO fix just total replacement. I did receive a couple of emails from the technician with all of the pictures and a quote for a new propane fireplace for $7,200. Seems like the upsell was more of concern than doing what I had requested.

All went well and I did not have to stand over the workers. This company was about the 4th company that could locate the problem. Others companies just wanted to clean the chimneys that I had alread

was recommended by another contractor and seemed knowledgeable about his craft. We agreed on the work and the price as well as billing terms (wanted to hold last portion of they payment a few days to ensure no issues).
Hillsboro Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
set up the scaffolding and completed work while we were at work (we did not expect this to be done so soon). Normally fast would be good, but we never discussed the stucco finish, and I didn't like his choice. I let it go because it was done already. He then came back later that same day and insisted on full payment (despite our prior arrangement). Two years later, the chimneys started to peel and come off in chunks, revealing old brick underneath.

promised to come by but never did. Repeated phone calls went unanswered. Recent inspections revealed the brick was never properly sealed and prepared for stucco and issue will only get worse. We now need a new mason to re-do

Company scheduled promptly for 10 am. Which is nice since there wasn't a half day window like a lot of companies do!

the technician arrived just a few minutes after 10 which was fine as he called ahead to let me know he would be a few minutes late.

came in and quickly got to work..laid down tarps to protect the house and got the chimney cleaned out in no time. We determined we needed a chimney cap and he had one on the truck so I had him go ahead with it. Total job was completed in a little over one hour. Cleaned up everything and tested the fireplace. He also recommended a few other services that were needed but was not pushy or "salesmany" about it. Just provided his recommendations and quotes. All in all a great service experience. Highly recommend.

Hillsboro Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
inspected my chimney and we discussed options. We chose to replace the flue. His estimate was very reasonable compared to a previous estimate from another company. They arrived on time and covered my floors and carpet. On the first day, they demolished the existing flue, removed all of the debris, and installed the new flue and cap. He returned the next morning to finish repairs in the smoke chamber. The new chimney flue is great. We have excellent draft and have burned wood almost every night since then. All of his employees were professional. We plan to have them return in the spring to repair the outside brick on the chimney.
