Buying A Home? Check That Chimney!
A home inspection does not always mean everything was inspected…. Sometimes inspectors overlook the chimney. When it comes to the safety of your home, and those in it, we feel like that is a critical oversight.
Chimney service companies can do much more than what you might remember from Mary Poppins! These folks can make repairs, add a chimney cap, and perform a complete inspection. They provide a thorough, professional evaluation and solutions to fix anything that might need it.
While a gas fireplace puts off less smoke, it still uses that chimney to disperse heat and smoke from the fire. Even though it is fueled differently than a wood-burning fire, it still requires a check-up.
When you are planning to purchase a home it is a fair request to ask that the chimney be professionally inspected.
