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.

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)

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.

I think they went above and beyond. They did a really good job. We had a second house and they thought they were supposed to do that house as well and drove through rush hour traffic which I thought was really good. The person who let them in to do the job thought they did a good job. They also let us know that we need to a new chimney cover. The scheduling was good.

The tech measured the cap and inspected it. They verified that the chimney cap was still serviceable but would need replacing in about a year. The tech was at the home for about 2 hours and it felt good knowing that the leak was not coming from my chimney.

They are a great company. They were not able to do my original job, but they were able to do other work on the exterior of my chimney. I was very impressed with their work and I would definitely recommend this company to other members.

While scheduling was OK and they were responsive, they didn’t do the job and didn’t give me back my money after they indicated they would do this or issue a credit.

Of all the service people who have worked on this house since I bought it 2.5 years ago (and that's a LOT),
Suffolk Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
and the people who moved me are the only ones who provided service that was far beyond my expectations.
Suffolk Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
is just in a class of their own. I'm told that they are pricey (I didn't comparison shop because they were so highly recommended, so I'm not sure, but the original repairs they did were not cheap), but just as for the movers that I mentioned, there is a reason that you pay for quality : in the case of
Suffolk Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
, it's service people who do continuing education and therefore are aware of the latest technology and who have the highest standards when working in your home.
When they did the original repairs, they had to redo all the mortar inside the chimney and I also had them place a little "hat" damper on top of the chimney. As my house is a 1939 bungalow, the chimney came without any damper/flue, so I was glad that they suggested that solution and I have been very happy with it.
They work with a scanner that provides an image on a computer screen, and they shared all the images with me and showed me exactly what they were doing.
One thing that really sets them apart is the information that they provide. I think the word professional is very overused today, but the person from
Suffolk Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
who has come to my house both times qualifies in the true sense of the word. He can tell you everything that you need to know (and more, if you are interested), and he makes certain that you have all the information that you need before he leaves. This includes how to build fires (not nearly so basic as I thought), not just in general but with specifics that will help you use your individual chimney/firebox to get the best draft, what conditions can cause problems (very long list, some of which I never would have guessed), and different solutions if you find yourself in the middle of a problem.
It goes without saying that they take impeccable care that the inside of the house is completely protected so that everything is as clean when they leave as it was when they arrived.

The contractors, Manual and
Suffolk Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
arrived on time, both were professional and considerate. Although the job was minimal, I appreciated that
Suffolk Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
also took the extra time in accessing my roof to evaluate that the chimney was completely in good repair. All my additional questions were patiently answered. The job was left clean and orderly. Yes, I will hire them again. Additionally, I consider that time taken by the company to respond courteously to all reviews, indicates a commitment to the customer.
