    When Doing a Masonry Inspection on your Chimney Here’s what to Look For


    Chimney inspections are so important to complete.  If you recently moved into a home, looking at a potential new one or just can’t remember the last time you had one done, now is the time to get your masonry inspection scheduled.

    A comprehensive chimney masonry inspection can uncover many hidden problems you wouldn’t have noticed otherwise.  It also is a great way to gather information on the current “health” of your chimney as well as how it has been cared for over the years.

    When completing a masonry inspection, the technician will look for the following things:

    • Broken or cracked flue liners.
    • Chipped or spalling brickwork.
    • Excessive creosote buildup within the flue. Thick layers of this highly flammable byproduct is one of the leading causes of chimney fires.
    • Signs of tilting or structural damage of the masonry flue. Not only should a technician be able to notice major problems but also smaller ones that may need attention down the road.
    • Damage of the chimney crown, cap, firebox, smoke chamber and other structural features.
