"Tech found our house without getting lost! (This alone is amazing) Arrived on time. Provided the service we contracted and kept the work area clean. Gave us a maintenance" and service report which is also the receipt. The tech was very professional and pleasant to deal with, answered some questions we had and explained a few things. Overall an excellent experience.

-Maria L.

"Responsive and punctual for the appointment. Performed inspection of inside and outside of the chimney, cleaned the inside of the fireplace. At the end of the" inspection he recommended $800+ of repair work that needed to be done. I just purchased the home 8 months prior and inspection on fireplace was fine. I asked what was critical and he named a couple of items and said he could do them that day for $300 if I wrote him a good review and gave him a little cash tip. We looked at the fireplace together and he showed me the cracks that needed to be repaired and why and I agreed to have him complete. As we looked at the fireplace together he then noted that here were other areas of concern that he hadn't included on his initial report. He said he would take care of those for the $300 plus a couple of dollars cash. I agreed. He completed the work, but said he would need to come back to finish the repair as he didn't have the high temperature caulk to seal everything, but he was in my area every day or 2 and would just stop back by. I paid him and gave him $20 tip with a handshake he would return. He emailed me following the appointment to remind me to give him a good review online and I responded that I would once he returned and completed the work. I have not heard from him or the company since.

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.


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.

Industry experts recommend an annual inspection and cleaning as needed, generally every year or two depending on how much use the fireplace gets.

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.

Excellent. The company owner was easy to contact through the request form on their site, and provided a thorough review after inspecting the chimney, all within days of initial contact. He made us aware of challenges within the job, and anticipated how that could impact the final product. Very friendly and professional, and the work was excellent.

I had to call them because I needed to confirm the time. They had not requested my work number when I made the appointment.
Two guys were early and called me at work. They arrived at my home immediately after I arrived.

The company called me right after contacting them and we set up an appointment. They called the day before to confirm and the technicians called 1/2 hour before arriving. They were friendly, courteous, professional and did the work in a timely manner. They put down floor covering and cleaned up everything as though they were never there. They checked the 2 fireplaces, dryer vent and the water heater vent. They took pictures and showed us what everything looked like. We would definitely use this company again. GOOD JOB! Nice to have a company say they will show up and they actually do!
- Judi U.

The price was great, but the workmanship was not all that good. This company seems to specialize in chimney work, and they are probably OK for that because you can't really see most chimneys up close so sloppy mortar joints aren't really visible. Patching a large hole in existing brick is a bit of an art, though, and their mason did not really have the skills to do this properly.
The man who did the estimate was thorough and helpful, and although he was late, he called to let me know. He promised to email me a written quote in a couple of days. When the quote did not arrive, I tried emailing him and got no answer. After several days of this, I called the company and was told that their computer was down, but that
Stoughton Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
(the owner) would come by my houses the next day and bring the written quote.
Stoughton Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
arrived as promised, and said he was able to do the work that same day, so I let him. He and one other mason completed the tasks.
He reset some loose stones in a flagstone sidewalk and filled in missing mortar. That work looked OK, though not great, as the mortar didn't really match the existing. The flagstones were irregular in shape, so the mortar joints didn't have to be perfect. I also had him brick in a hole that was left when we removed a heat/air conditioning unit that was built into the wall when a room was added onto the house. While the color of the brick was a good match, the bricks were not laid exactly straight, and the mortar joints were not tooled to match the surrounding joints, so the patch looks sloppy. There was also a lot of excess mortar on the bricks, which left a white haze.
I complained to
Stoughton Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
that I was not happy with the brick work. He agreed to come out and clean the bricks, which he did, but he would not do anything about the crooked bricks.

They were extremely detailed in their cleaning and inspection. Unfortunately they found that our chimney was deemed unsafe for use, due to neglect from previous owners. They did a fabulous job, were very knowledgeable and informative, as well as provided video and images to show the damage that had occurred over time. In response to that unexpected result, they did give us recommendations and approximate repair costs if we decided to go the route of repairing the wood burning fireplace vs. switching to a gas insert. We would absolutely use them again!

We had just purchased a home with two wood fireplaces so wanted inspected/cleaned prior to use. Owner
Stoughton Chimney Repair Services Provider Name Locked
arrived on time, and got right to work with inspection. He inspected the upper fireplace and found that it did not need cleaning (I am new to fireplaces so was impressed that he didn't just clean anyway and charge me to do so). He proceeded to inspect, clean and do some minor repairs to the lower level fireplace and chimney.
When he found out we had no experience with wood fireplaces he was more than happy to give us some education on best practices. I would and will use this provider again in the future for my chimney maintenance.
