"Quality work and professional. The

"Horrible! I have no idea how this company stays in business or where all these positive reviews come from. I couldn't even get a quote from them! It started" off well; I requested a quote and a very nice young man showed up early. He wrote down what I needed, took some pictures and told me '
' (owner?) would call me with a quote in the next day or so. I never heard from him. I tried following up on several occasions leaving multiple messages with no return call. I finally got a hold of someone, explained my situation and he said he'd call the office and get back to me in 20 minutes. I haven't heard from them since and have again tried calling a couple times. There's no way I will move forward with this company now. If it's this hard just to get a quote I can't imagine giving them any sort of deposit to actually do some work. It feels like they'd disappear with my money. If they didn't want the work they could have just said so and saved me a lot of time and effort.

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.

Very courteous, responsive to my needs and very professional. On time and a very fair price.
Manheim Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
is someone you can trust. He is the owner AND he returns calls when needed!! Couldn't ask for a better service provider. I look forward to having him back when I need a cleaning. He is now going to be the point person for anything to do with the chimney. As far as I am concerned I will remain his customer. He was the first and last company I called. No reason for other quotes! Once a good service provider comes to my home and does the right thing, that provider has a customer for life!

Manheim Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
did an excellent job. He had to take off the old damaged brick, and rebuild the chimney from the roof up. He was very conscientious about picking a compatible color for the brick since the old brick wasn't manufactured any more. He came on time, did the work in 3 days, waterproofed the brick, left no mess, and gave us a very fair price. He even did a little extra job inside our fireplace which we really appreciated. All in all, it was the best experience with a contractor that we have had in a long time. I would highly recommend him.

After receiving a quote from another company that told me I needed a stainless steel liner and more repairs than I expected, I contacted
Manheim Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
. A family member, after obtaining multiple quotes, had decided to use this company. I checked
Manheim Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
on Angie's List and found they had a really good rating so I called them. They were prompt, friendly, professional, and after completely inspecting my chimney, received a very reasonable quote. Instead of a $2500 repair quote from another company, they gave me a quote for necessary repairs as I listed above for $770. The two guys who did the work did not waste any time, they gave me a detailed explanation of the condition of my chimney, and I did not feel like they were selling me on getting more work done than I needed. I have recommended this company to many others.

We hired him to do the repairs and on the agreed day he showed up promptly and went to work and was able to get all the repairs done in one single day. He was polite, professional, showed up on time and I would definitely hire him again in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone.

very professional and answered all of my questions thoroughly. I learned a lot about my chimney from this appointment (the previous owner probably burned trash in it) as this is the first time i have bought a place with a chimney. He showed me some issues with my chimney and options for resolution. I promptly received a proposal and will move forward on waterproofing and putting a cap on my chimney with

Provider stated on phone they knew how to do service gas fireplaces. They just did a quick cleaning that I could have done myself, and had no idea how to service or repair the fireplace. I knew as much about gas fireplaces as them. Although I do have to say, they were polite and professional, which is more than most contractor types I have dealt with. For me, I wasted my money and need a qualified gas fireplace professional out there, I won't use a chimney sweep next time. However, they might be ok for just a chimney cleaning.

They arrived right on time and the stonemason got to work. He worked from nine to 4 on my house. He did a nice job on both sides of the house and the chimney and cleaned up. I would recommend this company to anyone who needs

Took longer to complete due to having to make a chimney cap onsite.

pointing was good but lintel settings were not as expected. You could not expect nicer, more polite workmen. They document all their work with digital photos. I would use them again.
