Larry F. says, "Bernard and his crew provided an overall great experience from start to finish. I have an older home that is in need of a lot of work. I had multiple people give me an estimate but I didn't feel like they were listening to what I wanted. Some didn't even respond at all. Jairo was very honest and patient with me (he knew I had no clue). He came to my house, listen to want I wanted and then educated me on options out there that can give me the look I wanted within my budget. He gave me an estimate (very reasonable) and told me when he would be available to get started. Him and his partner were on time for phase 1 of my remodeling project, floor installation in the kitchen, dining room, living room and bathrooms. They did an incredible job and made sure everything was cleaned up and back in place before they left. I am so happy how this project turned out. I am so excited and looking forward to starting phase 2 with Bernard very soon. Thanks for everything! Great job!!!" Read more

Your Chimney Inspection questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does a chimney inspection cost near me?

A chimney inspection costs $100 to $250, which includes a basic cleaning. This price is for a level 1 inspection, or a visual check only, of an average fireplace or wood stove. More thorough level 2 or level 3 inspections cost more and check for structural damages with additional equipment.

  • A level 2 chimney inspection costs $250 to $600. This price includes the assessment of up to 2 chimneys or fireplaces with a video camera to look at all hidden areas. A comprehensive level 2 inspection is best before buying a home to ensure the chimney has no structural problems.
  • A level 3 chimney inspection costs $900 to $5,000. This fee covers the complete analysis of up to 3 chimney stacks plus urgent repairs. A level 3 inspection delves into significant damages that require repair work in order to fully assess the condition of the chimney.

What is a chimney inspection, and what does it include?

A chimney inspection involves a detailed assessment of both the inner and outer sections of the flue, fireplace, and stove connections. The chimney technician makes a report about if the chimney is safe to use, or they list all damages. All inspectors must clean the chimney to assess its condition.

  • A standard chimney inspection typically includes:
  • Inspecting the bricks, mortar, and overall structure for cracks or deterioration.
  • Ensuring the damper opens and closes properly to allow enough ventilation.
  • Checking the flues for any blockages, excessive and flammable buildup, or cracks in the liner that can leak out harmful gases.
  • Examining the firebox for signs of damages that could prevent it from safely containing a fire.
  • Verifying the chimney vents smoke and gases effectively to the outside, which protects you from carbon monoxide poisoning.

Do I need a chimney inspection?

You need a chimney inspection annually to comply with many state building codes. Fire safety departments recommend routine chimney inspections, irrespective of their usage frequency.

You should also consider a chimney inspection when:

  • You're undertaking repairs in the aftermath of an earthquake or fire.
  • You plan to use your fireplace or stove during chilly seasons.
  • Installers are connecting a new furnace to your chimney.
  • You're settling into a new home with a chimney that hasn't been inspected.

How long does a chimney inspection take?

Typically, a chimney inspection takes between 1 to 2 hours, though a basic level one inspection for a well-kept chimney might take even less time. Blocked flues will take much longer to clean.

On the other hand, a Level 3 inspection can require double the time since it often involves the removal of the crown or other components to inspect potential issues.

How often should a chimney be inspected?

National fire and chimney safety organizations say your chimney should be inspected 1 to 2 times a year. Even an unused chimney can attract pests or suffer damages that go unnoticed and risk your safety.

What happens if I don’t clean my chimney?

Neglecting to clean your chimney can lead to health hazards such as carbon monoxide exposure and more house fire risks due to combustible buildup in the flue. Additionally, moisture produce acids that deteriorate the lining when the chimney doesn't vent properly.

How do I find a chimney inspector near me?

You can find a chimney inspector nearby when you search the listings here on HomeGuide or ask your neighbors and local homeowners association for referrals.

Before hiring a chimney inspector near you, be sure to:

  • Compare 3+ estimates from several licensed, bonded, and insured inspectors.
  • Request a list of references from past clients.
  • Read their reviews on HomeGuide and Google.
  • Avoid choosing the lowest bid since it may result in a low-quality inspection.

Ask if they have certifications like:

  • Credentials from the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA)
  • A state chimney technician license
  • InterNACHI® membership as a certified home inspector
  • The National Fireplace Institute (NFI) certification
  • A home improvement contractor's license
  • State gas handler's license for gas-powered fireplaces
  • Membership in the National Chimney Sweep Guild or other fire safety organizations

What questions do I ask a chimney inspector?

Ensure you select a competent chimney inspector by first asking:

  • How many years of experience do you have in chimney inspections?
  • Which tools and equipment do you use?
  • Should I opt for a level 1, level 2, or level 3 chimney inspection?
  • Will your inspection encompass the flue, fireplaces, stoves, and the external part of the chimney?
  • Do you maintain your CSIA certification by taking annual courses?
  • Can you show me video evidence of any damage detected in the chimney?
  • Does the provided estimate cover the inspection, cleaning, and all associated labor costs?
  • Does your company also offer repair services, or do you strictly perform inspections?
  • Is there an additional fee for inspecting multi-story homes, such as 2- or 3-story residences?
  • How much time will you need for the inspection?
  • Will you provide a detailed report, including any repair suggestions if required?
  • Do you offer regular chimney maintenance services, and what's the cost?
