Fireplace Inspectors In Your Area

Fireplaces can be dangerous without the right maintenance. If you use yours frequently, the flue could be clogged with buildup and soot. Your chimney might also have leaks or separation that redirects the smoke and sparks. Before you light a fire or upgrade your inserts and gas logs, get a fireplace inspection from a local expert.

Fireplace inspections give you advance notice if your fireplace is unsound or too dirty for safe usage. The NFPA, or National Fire Protection Association, recommends you get an inspection every year. A local expert can schedule an appointment with you quickly. They are also familiar with the construction styles in the region. So they can let you know if a new insert or gas log is a good fit. Most local experts don't just handle inspections. They can also:

  • Clean your chimney and flue.
  • Repair leaking or broken chimney caps.
  • Install new gas logs, fireplaces, and inserts.

"I contacted Finest Chimney Sweep to inspect and clean my fireplace/chimney, Jaime arrived at the scheduled time to perform the cleaning and inspection. Very polite and professional. Jaime explained every step of the process and what he found in the inspection. The crew that performed the needed repairs did excellent job replacing the chimney crown, 2 cracked flue tiles, power washing the bricks and installing a new stainless steel cap. "

"The only reason I gave work quality and the overall rating 4.5 instead of 5 stars was that they did not get on the roof and inspect the top of the chimney. The last company I had did that and I think that's an important part of the inspection. However, for the price I paid and the service I did get, I am very pleased."

"Troy did a great job cleaning out my two chimney's and explaining a few things to me. Keeps your house clean and very knowledgeable about his job. Dustin was a little hard to get a hold of and slow to get my appointment schedule nailed down, but he didn't let me down. This was the first time I have had chimney's serviced, but I was hoping Troy would get on the roof and inspect the caps as part of the normal inspection. I will get up there and check that part out myself. I will call Dustin again if I need anything. They are good guys and charge fair prices. "

"Luis did a super job cleaning the chimney from the bottom up. There was only a visual inspection of the chimney cap on the roof from below. I didn’t check in advance to see if they would go on the roof and we had bad weather with some snow, so maybe they would inspect from top down as needed. Overall great customer service and friendly technician. "

"Thomas maintained good communication prior to and during the project of chimney inspection and cleaning. He was prompt and completed the work promptly and share before and after photos of the chimney including climbing onto the roof to inspect the caps. He provided recommendations for further work to possibly consider. He was very responsive and responsible."
