"I cannot say enough about how great it was to work with The Chimney Medic!! They are so nice, and as honest and upfront as they come. While other contractors wrote an estimate and handed it to us on their way out the door, they took the time to explain both the process and the quote, and answered any questions.
They were on time for both the estimate and the work, and were professional and friendly. They take pride in their work and it shows! We were given pictures of the chimney from different angles, both before and after the repairs, so we could see where the problems were & what work was done. The only evidence they were here is the beautiful chimney work- there was absolutely no mess left behind. All in all, a very positive experience with an awesome crew:-)"

LEVEL 1 CHIMNEY INSPECTION
If your appliance or your venting system has not changed and you plan to use your system as you have in the past, then a Level 1 inspection is acceptable. In a Level 1 inspection, your Chimney Medic technician will examine the chimney exterior, interior and the appliance or chimney connection. Your technician will be looking for the basic soundness of the chimney structure and flue as well as the basic appliance installation and connections. The technician will also verify the chimney is free of obstruction and combustible deposits.
A Level 1 Inspection usually concludes with a thorough cleaning. Your Chimney Medic technician will also give you a report on what he found during the inspection as well as any recommendations to ensure the ongoing safe and efficient operation of your system.
LEVEL 2 CHIMNEY INSPECTION
A Level 2 inspection is required when any modifications have been made to your system such as a change in the fuel type, changes to the shape of, or material in, the flue (i.e. relining), or the replacement or addition of a heating appliance. A Level 2 inspection is also required upon the sale or transfer of a property or after some event that is likely to have caused damage to the chimney. Building fires, chimney fires, seismic events as well as weather events are all examples when a Level 2 inspection is warranted.
A Level 2 inspection includes all of the visual examination included in a Level 1 inspection, plus some additional work. In a Level 2 inspection, a video camera or other device may be used to examine the flue and check for cracks or damage to the joints in the chimney’s structure. The Chimney Medic provides a written report and recommendations to address any issues discovered during the inspection.
