3 Levels of Chimney Inspection
Our Framingham customers rely on us for all three levels of chimney inspection as designated by the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA), through which we hold professional certifications.
Level 1 chimney inspection
This is the basic inspection that you should schedule once a year. A Level 1 inspection includes a close examination of all visible areas of your chimney system including the structure in general, the bricks and mortar and components such as the chimney cap and crown.
Level 2 chimney inspection
Level 2 inspections are called for when:
- You’re selling your home (or you’re buying a home and want to know the exact condition of the chimney)
- You’re adding a new appliance to vent through your chimney, changing the fuel type of the current appliance or having your chimney relined
- A chimney fire or other event may have caused unexpected damage to your chimney
This inspection always involves the use of video imaging, allowing us to see down into your flue and check for signs of hidden damage.
Level 3 chimney inspection
When a previous inspection turns up evidence of severe damage in hidden areas within your chimney system, we perform a Level 3 inspection. Here, we often need to remove sections of the chimney structure or adjacent materials of the home to get to the center of the problem.
