"They showed up on time and were done in about one hour. They cleaned up and called the town for my inspection. They were also here for inspection to show the inspector" what was done. This company gave me the most reasonable price too.

-Anita D.

"Outstanding. They called ahead of the scheduled appointment, and arrived on time.
evaluated the situation and advised that the chimney" was not the source of the water leak. He displayed a high level of honesty and integrity. He took photos of the chimney area on the roof and reviewed them with me as he explained the situation. There was no charge for coming out and examining the problem area. He also thoroughly presented and explained some preventive maintenance items for my consideration. It was truly refreshing to encounter such a high degree of professionalism. I will definitely keep them on my short list of contractors for consideration and utilization. I would highly recommend them.

How to Avoid Chimney Repair Scams

Scams lure homeowners via solicitations, door-to-door sales pitches and ads offering too-good-to-be-true prices.

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.




***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.

Keswick Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
, the companies bid-writer said that his company would be competitive with other contractors. As other bids came I tried to reach
Keswick Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
, who did not respond for over 3 weeks. After connecting with the companies co-owner,
Keswick Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
, he came out and rebid the project in what I considered a misleading and confusing proposal. Although we had signed an agreement for what I thought was completing the whole job for a little over $2100, and I had provided a charge card for 1/2 that amount up-front, further discussion made it clear that he was intending to do only a fraction of the entire job written up. We terminated the agreement at that point, fortunately avoiding material damages potential litigation.
Of the four contractors I dealt with in this project, the communication and integrity of this firm was the only I would characterize as misleading and unsatisfactory.
- Douglas G.

There was a discrepancy between the price contract and the work needed. After some back and forth, the owner stated he would do the right thing and provide the work, despite the disagreement, which I view as a positive reflection of their honesty and standing behind their work.

Called before he came on scheduled day as I requested, and arrived early. Very polite and friendly. He checked the fireplace chimney, and said it was completely clean! He didn't have to do anything and he didn't charge me. It was wonderful to find such an honest professional, and I would not hesitate to use him in the future or recommend him. A+ in my book!
- Irene M.

Nick and Vinny were excellent. The purchased inspection and cleaning went quickly and quietly. During the inspection of my fireplace flue, it was discovered that the flue to my boiler was damaged and in need of repair. Vinny showed me what the issue was and described what was needed for repair. I will be strongly looking at HSE to perform the repair work.

We would happily recommend them and they are our to go to masons for every project (big or small) we had or will have in the future.

They were amazing. Their quote was significantly cheaper than others we had contacted. They were prompt, efficient and clean.
I dealt with about 5 different employees in person and several others on the phone/email and they were all wonderful and nice. I would definitely recommend them to anyone and would definitely use them again without question.
- Lisa C.

Did not do any additional work they suggested, it was over the top and over priced. Felt like this promotion was to get in the door to find additional work.
- Tom S.

They did a good job and were prompt and quick. They inspected the chimney and reported an issue. However, since i had an inspection just a month ago, i was able to discuss the results and they agreed that the chimney was fine. They didn't push for more work.
