"It would be nice if all work crews were as efficient, polite quick as these two. The men (
and Florim), in addition to doing the above work" in a professional manner had no problem with my request to paint the chimney. Of course, there was a small additional and fair charge to do so. They painting skills are better than most "professional" painters I've dealt with in the past. Not a drop of spilt paint. When they left, it was as if they were never there, except for the completed job. I would highly recommend this crew and company and would use dthem in the future, if needed.

cleaned the chimney. Afterwards, the representative mentioned that the chimney box needed further work, but he said it was not crucial at" the time. He then quoted a ballpark figure and left it at that. No pressure. Just information.

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.

did a great job on the rebuild of our brick pillar - in fact it looks better than it's mate on the opposite side of the driveway. If someone hits the other one with their commercial van, I'll definitely give

They did a fantastic job and I would highly recommend anyone in the area take a look at them. I was having issues with the damper after their first appointment but they came back out for a check up and reworked the damper for a very reasonable rate.

We never got a

First of all,
La Porte Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
always followed up with me. Whether I tried to contact him via a phone call, an email, or a message, he responded very quickly. He also showed up exactly when he said he would. I had another chimney repair company miss 2 appointments they had set, so it's great to have someone that actually cares about the customer and the customer's time.
I had 6 different quotes to remove vegetation from my chimney and make the necessary repairs. Of the 6 quotes, 3 of the companies pulled up to my home, looked up at the chimney from the ground, and said "You need a new chimney" and quoted my thousands of dollars. The other 3 (including
La Porte Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
) actually took out a ladder and climbed on the roof to inspect the chimney. All three of them said I did not need a "whole new chimney" and that it was in good shape and just needed some repairs.
La Porte Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
gave me the best overall price and had the best customer service.
When I contacted
La Porte Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
about doing the work, he came that day to go over the details of the job and he brought his worker who actually did the repairs. He created a new more detailed estimate spelling out everything that would be done and made sure his employee understood what was required and that I was satisfied with what would be done. It was amazingly detailed, unlike other contractors estimates I have seen in the past. He said multiple times that he wanted to make sure I am satisfied. I gave him a small deposit and he and his worker were there the next day to start the job. By the end of the day, my chimney was repointed and reflashed. He needed to come back a few days later (after everything dried), to finish the rest of the work. I offered to pay him part of the money for what was done on the first day and he refused. He said I should pay him the balance when the job is finished and i am happy with the work. Wow. A contractor not wanting money until everything was completed and I was happy?! I was stunned and pleased.
His worker returned a few days later as promised and finished everything. The chimney looks new. Even my neighbors commented on how nice it looks. They were also very clean. Other than a new looking chimney, you couldn't even tell they had ever been there.

They were on time. They set up quickly outdoors. Took 3 hours to finish desired cabinets. Excellent job. I will
use them again now that I've seen their work and work ethic. They even cleaned up everything before they left and you couldn't tell they were there. I appreciate that very much.

They were very friendly, courteous and professional. Did a great job. They were also very accommodating on rescheduling due to inclement weather. Specifically the technician was willing to do the work during a holiday weekend.
