Investing In Your Annual Inspection

First things first, you’ll need to have an inspection done. The CSIA recommends investing in at least one inspection per year, as this will minimize the risk of further damage or troublesome issues that could put your home and family at risk. This is an easy step to take – all you have to do is call us and schedule an appointment!

Once we check things over, we can let you know of any further work you may need to have completed. We’re CSIA certified and qualified to perform level 1, 2, or 3 inspections so, no matter what state your chimney is in, we can set you up right. When you work with us, you get nothing less than the best!

Do You Need A Sweeping Or Repairs?

Should our inspection reveal further issues that need addressing, our team is more than ready to handle it all. Many times there are cracks, holes, and other forms of deterioration that need to be properly addressed before homeowners can safely light their first fire of the year. In these cases, we will utilize our best tools and materials, ensuring a job well done, so you can feel confident moving forward with your burning season.

Other times, we take note of excess creosote within a chimney system. Creosote can be very harmful when it accumulates and, no matter the texture or amount, it should be addressed promptly before any further issues arise. Creosote is known for being very flammable, so your chances of experiencing a chimney fire increase significantly when a lot of it is present.

In these cases, a thorough sweeping will be necessary. Our team stays up-to-date and trained on all of the latest technologies and techniques in this industry, so you can rest easier knowing we’ve got you covered from top to bottom.
