Houston Chimney Experts offers chimney inspection which will determine the condition of your chimney and the service needed in order to get the fireplace to a good operating condition.
During the chimney inspection the technician will check the following:
• CRACKS OR BROKEN FLUE.
• WE WILL MAKE SURE THE DAMPER OPENS AND CLOSES PROPERLY.
• DETERMINE FLUE CREOSOTE BUILD UP LEVELS.
• SIGNS OF ANY WATER DAMAGE OR WATER ENTRY POINTS.
• CHIMNEY CAP CONDITION.
It is important to remember we can only estimate the cost of the inspection over the phone but any repairs needed must be evaluated at the time to the inspection when we have a technician at the property.
CHIMNEY CAMERA INSPECTION
A camera inspection service is recommended when there are evidence of an allayment or structure damage to the flue or interior structure.
We can not always detect interior damage through the standard inspection and a camera inspection is than needed.
The Chimney Camera Inspection process is ordered separately and there is an additional charge for the service.
We use a wireless camera system which projects live video directly to the technician.We can than determine what will be the best approach for the repair (if one is needed).
