Delivering the highest quality Inspection

Annual chimney inspections and cleaning for your Rochester residence should be conducted every year according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). Whether you own a home or business, hiring a professional chimney company to perform an inspection is important for maintaining your chimney’s structural integrity and safe functioning. Our Rochester chimney technicians provide all three perform inspections that meet the criteria for all three inspection levels as defined by the NFPA:

  • Level 1: Level 1 inspections include a basic assessment of the chimney to identify any blockages or issues that could become problematic.
  • Level 2: Level 2 inspections are more detailed, involving a complete video scan of the chimney’s exterior flue and a close look at the entire chimney’s structure. Every aspect of the chimney is inspected, including the chimney cap, the crown, the flashing, the masonry, flue liner, damper, appliance connection, smoke chamber, and parts. Level 2 inspections are generally always performed before the installation of a new liner or appliance. Level 2 inspections are the standard of our chimney inspections and cleaning care that our Rochester-based chimney technicians typically follow for all of our customers
  • Level 3: Level 3 inspections are comprehensive assessments of the entire chimney (interior and exterior), as well as the attic or basement. Typically, Level 3 inspections involve demolition work or major construction, as they are generally performed as a result of an unexpected accident – such as lightning strike or chimney fire.
