Benefits of Chimney Inspections
Chimney inspections ensure that you can safely and comfortably use your fireplace this fall and winter. Inspections catch any and all problems in your chimney, such as creosote buildup. Creosote is a highly flammable byproduct produced by burning wood, and even the smallest amount of buildup is very dangerous. We will also remove any other flue blockages during an inspection, such as leaves, sticks, twigs, or debris from an animal. Inspections also determine if any chimney components such as the flue, firebox, or chimney cap are damaged or missing entirely. If they are, we will replace or repair them immediately. All of these problems are major fire hazards and can lead to other issues such as downdrafts, leaks, or costly repairs in the future.
Types of Chimney Inspections
We perform three levels of chimney inspections, with elements of each one varying depending on the condition of your system. Level 1 inspections involve routine examinations and are standard with all sweepings. During an inspection, we thoroughly examine your entire chimney system to determine its condition. If there are any problems, we will recommend the necessary course of action. Level 2 inspections use video cameras to inspect every accessible area of the chimney system and are necessary for several different circumstances such as property transactions. Level 3 inspections include extensive demolition and rebuild work to repair any major problems. At C&C Chimney, we also provide countless other chimney services such as relining, leak repairs, and more. Our technicians can handle anything thrown their way!
