"I've employed
before, and he always does a great job in a friendly, professional manner. This time I needed a chimney liner installed" for my gas water heater, which was exhausting directly into a masonry chimney.
came by my home twice to give me an estimate and check out all the details so he could get the correct parts and quantity. He was always exactly on time for his appointments, and the same was true of the day he actually did the work. While installing a chimney liner is fairly routine, it was complicated by the extreme height of my home (about 35 feet) and steepness of my roof (12 over 12).
also encountered a wasp nest and had to relocate his ladder to avoid getting stung. And it was a brutally hot, sunny day. Anyway, he installed the liner, added a piece of supported sheet metal across the top of the chimney and under the cap to keep out driving rain, and added additional sealant and sheet metal to the seam in the stone chimney cap to ensure no rain would get through that way either. (Sealing the seam was something he did on his own initiative for no extra charge.) A couple days later I noticed a little excess mortar on the chimney and a couple of small gouges in the roof shingles, probably because the shingles were so soft in the extreme heat. I called
and he came out that day and removed the excess mortar and replaced the damaged roof shingles, then called later to make sure I was satisfied.

"Main chimney is very high, it took 10 levels of scaffolding to access it. It is difficult to find a contractor willing to work on it. 3 new 24" flues were" required which added $200 to the estimate. On
8, I pointed out to
that a few sections near the ground level were not repointed when they did original job. He will return and point these up. As of
29, I am waiting for this to be done.

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.

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.

The serviceman, sorry I cannot remember his name called saying he would be about to minutes late. Arrived on time and completed the work in an hour. Left everything clean and neat, and explained what we needed very well. I would call them again.

Missed some spots in the chimney cleaning, so it was still sooty. Also installed a chimney cap for a wide chimney by squeezing two small caps together and bending the edges up so they fit next to each other. Doesn't look very good, but it was inexpensive...

I paid for a deal for $149 but when the representative showed up to look at the job. He told me It's going to cost mean extra $450. The job was a small job but I said ok. He told me he did not have any spot on his schedule and I had to wait 3 weeks. After 3 weeks I did not get a call about when they can come to do the job. When I called to remind them they got on it right away and scheduled the job for next day. The price was more than expected but the work looks good.

Excellent, professional service. He understood that the scope of work I was requesting was not that involved, but nonetheless treated me like an important client. He also did this by providing a reasonable quote and didn't try to upsell me on things I didnt' need or want. Worked to accommodate my schedule, and allowed me to even reschedule the service without any problem. Upon arrival, he worked quickly and diligently. Would definitely use and recommend again.

Our oil chimney didn't have any liner and need to be up to code. The crown of Chimney was cracked and needed some repair. Pieces of brick fragments fell to the ground. We are concerned about having any other further damage to the Chimney in cases of bad weather.
When
Irwin Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
came in.. They were very professional. They show us a picture of the inside of the Chimney and explained to us of the consequences of not having a liner in the Chimney. They also checked the gas Chimney said it doesn't really need any repair but one brick had to be replace that came off.
After cleaning, putting new liner in and repairing the crown, they refilled any open holes in both Chimney.They gave us warranty on repairs in case of bad weather. It a total relief that there honesty in a job well done!
