    Fall is Around the Corner – 5 Questions to Ask Your Chimney Inspector


    With fall quickly upon us, the long list of household “to-do’s” is sure to grow.  One of those important maintenance tasks you don’t want to forget is a quality chimney cleaning and inspection.  And, when looking for professional chimney inspection services, who you hire for the job can make all the difference.

    Finding the right chimney inspector starts with asking the right questions.

    Before scheduling your chimney inspection, it’s important to make sure you know a little about the person who will be working on your home.  While you don’t need a complete FBI background check to find the right partner, there are some simple things you can ask to ensure you get great service.

    Confused about where to start? Here are a few important questions to begin with:

    1. What does your chimney inspection services include? What are you getting with your chimney inspection?  You probably want to know, right?  Inquire about what is included with the basic service and what you can expect to receive.
    2. Are you licensed a chimney inspector in this state? Every contractor working on your home should carry a license in their specific field and within your particular area.  This proves that they have at least passed the local guidelines to qualify to work in people’s homes.
    3. Do you take video or pictures of the flue? If your chimney inspector makes you aware of outstanding issues, you want to see the evidence for yourself.  Video or photos can help provide that proof.  Snapshots can also be sent to the insurance company if you have a claim to process.
    4. How long have you been in the business? Experience is important when it comes to the chimney industry. And you want someone who knows what they are doing.  Ask them how long they have been inspecting chimneys.  You may also want to ask for references or look for recommendations through online referral sites.
    5. What other services do you provide? What happens if there are damages inside the flue?  You want to make sure the person you are working with is able to address them.  A good chimney servicer will also offer cleanings, masonry repair, chimney rebuilds, and other repair services.
