Over time, your fireplace accumulates a significant amount of soot and debris, which can impact its performance and, in worst-case scenarios, pose a fire hazard. Finding a reliable chimney inspector in your area may prove to be a challenge, but ensuring the safety and cleanliness of your chimney is of paramount importance, allowing you to enjoy your fireplace without worries.
Quality Roofing & Chimney not only offers exceptional value but also provides valuable advice. Whether you’re in the process of buying, selling, or renovating a house, a comprehensive chimney inspection for your fireplace and chimney is a wise investment. Typical home inspectors often do not include these areas in their inspections, safeguarding themselves with escape clauses. We go the extra mile to assess your chimney’s needs and associated costs to ensure it complies with safety codes and standards.
When selecting an inspector, it’s prudent to choose one with a higher level of certification, capable of conducting Level 2 or 3 chimney inspections, if necessary. Inspectors without the qualifications for these advanced levels may need to call in another inspector, leading to delays and additional costs, as the subsequent inspector must reinspect the chimney.
Additionally, consider whether the inspector can perform the necessary repairs. At Quality Roofing & Chimney, we frequently receive requests to provide quotes for repairs recommended by other inspectors. However, we cannot rely solely on their assessments, necessitating our own inspection to ensure that no issues were overlooked. This approach ensures cost and time efficiency in addressing chimney-related concerns.
