Do I Need a Chimney Inspection?
If you use the fireplace regularly in your Knoxville home and it’s been more than a year since your chimney was professionally inspected, the answer to this question is yes. Our chimney inspectors look for all the obvious signs of damage to the system such as a chimney leak, loose bricks, crumbling mortar, a damaged chimney liner, a cracked chimney crown and similar issues. But we also have the training and hands-on experience to spot problems that might not be so easy to see at first glance.
An annual chimney inspection is the best way to get minor repairs done quickly before serious damage to the system occurs.
Types of Chimney Inspections
There are three levels of chimney inspections recognized and approved by the Chimney Safety Institute of America. We offer all three types for our Knoxville-area customers.
Level 1: The basic chimney inspection covering all visible areas of the chimney structure, chimney crown, chimney chase top, flashing, dampers and other chimney components.
Level 2: This inspection is performed when the home is being sold, when a chimney fire has happened and when a new fireplace, fireplace insert or other appliance is being connected to the chimney.
Level 3: Level 3 chimney inspections are performed when a previous inspection has turned up significant damage to the chimney system. This inspection is much more involved and often requires dismantling parts of adjacent walls or the ceiling and/or the chimney masonry to get to the damaged areas.
