Chimney Inspections

Chimney Savers Inc. provides in-depth chimney inspections for new home owners and real estate agents. We also provide service to anyone looking to make their home safer. Chimney inspections are required when buying a new home.

10A few key inspection points to follow:

  • In order to prevent rain, debris, and animals from entering your chimney, there should always be a cap with a screen on the chimney.
  • Check and see if there is excessive creosote buildup on the flue liner, along with cracked flue tiles. A Chimney Savers Chimney Sweep will be recommended if it has been a while between cleanings. As your chimney accumulates more and more buildup, you start to run a higher risk of a chimney fire.

A major cause of chimney related fires is failure to maintain required clearances (air spaces) for combustible material. A minimum clearance for temp guard is two (2) inches.
