Book Your Certified Chimney Inspection With Us

A chimney inspection is the best way to get a complete picture of the overall condition of your chimney. Because many parts of the chimney are inaccessible and invisible to the naked eye, closed circuit cameras operated by trained chimney professionals can be used to examine even the most out-of-the-way or hard-to-reach portions of your chimney’s interior. This allows hidden problems to be uncovered – and repaired – before they create safety hazards for you or your family.

What Happens During a Chimney Inspection?

Here’s what you can expect from our certified chimney experts during your chimney inspection:

  • We’ll check for signs of buildup or creosote accumulation.
  • We’ll look for any indications of birds or other critters in your chimney.
  • We’ll ensure there is no damage to your chimney interior.
  • We’ll examine the exterior of the chimney for cracks, loose bricks, or missing mortar.
  • We’ll check that no components are missing (like the chimney cap or damper).
  • If there is damage, we’ll offer recommendations for addressing it.
  • We’ll happily answer any questions or inquiries you have for us throughout the process.

How Often Should I Check My Chimney?

We encourage you as a homeowner to always be keeping an eye on your chimney and fireplace! Familiarize yourself with its various parts and how they should function, so you’re more aware and attuned to potential damages or threats.

Now, as far as the more official professional inspections, those should be completed every single year by a certified technician. This is the recommendation of the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) – along with almost any experienced and qualified sweep you ask.

We suggest booking in the spring or summer months to ensure ample time to address potential issues. In addition, most chimney companies are far less busy during these months, so you won’t have to worry about cramming your appointment in during an inconvenient time sometime throughout the cooler fall months.
