The purpose of a chimney inspection is to assess the condition of your chimney and identify any potential problems.
Your chimney should be inspected at least once a year by a qualified professional. An inspection involves a visual examination of the inside and outside of your chimney, as well as a thorough assessment of the structure and components.
During an inspection, the following things will be checked:
- The condition of the flue lining
- The condition of the mortar joints
- The condition of the bricks and masonry
- The condition of the flashings
- The condition of the chimney cap
- The condition of the Chimney crown
If any problems are identified, the inspector will recommend the appropriate course of action to address the issue.
Common problems that can be identified during a chimney inspection include:
- Cracks in the flue lining
- Damaged bricks or masonry
- Loose or missing flashings
- Missing or damaged chimney cap
- Damaged Chimney crown
If any of these problems are found, it is important to have them repaired as soon as possible to avoid further damage to your chimney. Depending on the severity of the problem, repairs can range from minor repair work to a complete rebuild of the chimney.
A professional chimney inspection can help you avoid costly repairs down the road and keep your chimney in good working condition. Contact a qualified professional to schedule an inspection today.
