Chimney inspections can tell our technicians several things about your chimney. It lets us know if there is enough build up on the flue tiles to require a sweeping, and it can also let us evaluate the condition of the existing flue and determine if any repairs may be required.
There are three levels of chimney inspections:
LEVEL 1 is the most basic inspection. In this type of inspection, your chimney technician will examine all of the readily accessible parts of your chimney and ventilation system to check for damage.
LEVEL 2 inspections cover everything from a Level 1 inspection, but will also include inspection of accessible areas of the attic, basement, chimney interior and exterior. Level 2 inspections will also include a camera scan of the chimney flue interior.
LEVEL 3 inspections are the most detailed type of inspection including examining concealed areas of your chimney where hidden hazards or damage are suspected.
