    Buying a Home? Why You Should Never Forget the Chimney Inspection

    DSC_0435 - blogHave you found the house of your dreams? While a home inspection is common practice, a chimney inspection is often a forgotten task but one worth considering. While a home inspector may provide a visual examination of the chimney and fireplace, they are not required to inspect areas that are not readily accessible including most often the interior of the flue. In fact, many in the profession are not educated fully in both chimney and venting systems and are by no means experts in the field. Hiring a certified chimney technician to examine and inspect the unit prior to purchase will help diagnose major issues and also offer peace of mind in your purchase.

    While on site, a chimney sweep will provide a thorough inspection of the chimney and fireplace. They may use specialized video scanning equipment to examine the condition of the inside of the flue looking for cracks, creosote buildup, and other signs of serious damage. They may also inspect the outside chimney area along with the chimney damper and surrounding flashing. A local professional is a great source for the latest information on building codes for your specific area. Keeping your family safe, they can also inform you if evidence of a previous fire is found and provide estimates on any needed repairs.
