Why chimney inspection?
The National Fire Protection Association requires the chimney, vents and fireplaces to be inspected on an annual basis to ensure that they are in sound working condition, free from any potential damage due to accumulated soots and deposits. A chimney that has been thoroughly inspected for performance and functioning protects your house structure against fire, carbon monoxide poisoning and other structural damages. Homeowners who opt for frequent fireplace inspections can easily prevent expensive repairs in the long run.

Reliable chimney inspection for your home safety
We offer 3-level chimney inspection services that are exactly in accordance with the National Fire Protection Association’s guidelines and requirements.
Our level-I inspection services is all about examining your chimney’s exterior, interior and other portions are that are accessible within the system. Our chimney inspectors check whether the chimney structure is in proper condition or not. They also check your flue and appliance installations as well as connections. During the level-I inspection, our technician also verifies whether the chimney is devoid of any obstructions and deposits.
Level II Inspection
If you have installed a new heating appliance within your home or in case you have changed the fuel type that you were burning, it will require us to undertake a level-II inspection. In fact, this inspection process is also carried out during the transfer or sale of the property or when there has been an operational malfunction or any other event that may have resulted in a damaged chimney. During this particular inspection, our technicians cover all the inspection techniques carried out at level-I inspection. In addition to this, we also inspect those parts of the crawl spaces, attics as well as basements that are easily accessible. Our chimney inspectors also check the condition of your chimney by conducting a video inspection as well as a smoke test.
If the Level-I and Level-II inspection indicates a potential hazard to the structure or the chimney, we will conduct a Level-III inspection by accessing and evaluating the concealed areas. This helps us to determine the exact condition and construction of the entire chimney system as well as the flue. Our Level-III chimney inspectors check the chimney after damage has been caused to the chimney as well as the building, or when a hazard has been suspected and detected.
At CSR, we have a great deal of experiences and knowledge to offer top-rated chimney inspection service.
