Count On Our Certified Techs for Your Chimney Inspections & Assessments

Homeowners with a chimney usually know that having their system inspected now and then is important. But did you know that industry experts actually recommend having a professional inspection completed annually?

This is the best approach for keeping everything running smoothly and safely throughout every burning season. And fortunately for those living in and around Columbus, the knowledgeable and friendly crew at The Chimney Guys is here to help.

What Do We Offer?

Level 1, 2 & 3 Inspections

We’re certified with the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA), which means we can provide three levels of chimney inspections:

Level 1

Level 1 inspections are for those who invest in chimney care every year and haven’t recently experienced any major changes, renovations, or damage.

We’ll examine readily accessible parts of your system, ensuring no buildup or areas of concern are present.

Level 2

Then there are level 2 inspections, which include everything in a level 1 inspection as well as a video inspection.

We have specialized camera equipment that is designed to give us an up-close and in-depth view of your interior system. These are needed after natural disasters or if any changes in the system have occurred.

Level 3

Finally, a level 3 inspection is reserved for times when damage is hidden and inaccessible.

In these cases, parts of the chimney or surrounding wall will need to be removed or demoed to get to the root of the problem. These are rare and will never be completed without first talking to the homeowner.

Virtual Assessments

Worried about your chimney, but an in-person inspection isn’t a realistic option right now? No problem. We offer virtual assessments, allowing you to get an analysis and an approximate estimate for repairs and services, all without setting up an actual appointment.

Real Estate Chimney Inspections

If you’re buying or selling a home, a real estate chimney inspection is a must. Essentially, this is a level 2 inspection, which means the sweep will use video equipment to perform a thorough examination of the flue.

This guarantees home buyers are left with no surprises and that any necessary repair costs can either be addressed by the seller or worked into the cost of the home before signing any final contracts.
