Buying a Home in the Area? Rely on Our Team for a Chimney Video Inspection

When buying a new home, many homeowners rely solely on the home inspector’s report before making their final decisions. Unfortunately, this can lead to some serious issues when it comes to the chimney and fireplace.

These inspectors definitely get a more in-depth look into the property, but their overview of the chimney system tends to be quite minimal. In fact, they are only required to give a quick glance at easily accessible parts.

This means, a lot of big issues could be lurking that will be your responsibility to take care of once all sales are finalized. Your best bet would be to hire a Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA)-certified sweep to do a level two video inspection before signing any papers. This way, should bigger problems be detected, you can work that into the final price of the home (or pick a different home altogether).

Now, clearly getting the job done right is essential when it comes to performing a level two chimney inspection, which is why you won’t want to rely on someone under-qualified or inexperienced. We have the technology, the equipment, and the know-how to provide you with all of the details you need regarding the chimney and fireplace system of your prospective new home.

We would be happy to look things over right away – just reach out online or give us a call!
