An annual chimney inspection can help prevent chimney fires and reduce the danger of carbon monoxide poisoning. Many things can go wrong with chimneys. – Usually, you’ll notice something wrong when your chimney stops venting properly

What to expect during a chimney inspection?

During a professional chimney inspection, an experienced chimney technician will check for creosote buildup inside the chimney flue, inspect your firebox for any visible cracks, test your log stater to detect gas or carbon monoxide leaks, then inspect the chimney structure & chimney cap on the roof for cracks, leaks or blockages , and other issues that will increase your risk of fire / carbon monoxide poisoning or expensive repairs  
We will also assess the condition of the flue liner, chimney cap, and chimney crown.

An annual Level 1 chimney inspection typically takes between 30 and 60 minutes to complete. We will need access to the fireplace and the roof, so please make sure that all combustible materials (such as wood, paper, and rugs) are removed from the area before we arrive.
