Chimney Scanning

What’s up your flue? A chimney inspection is basically the same thing as a sewer scan, but for the chimney. This is recommended for all solid fuel burning appliances, which typically means a wood-burning fireplace or pellet stove, any time there is a sale or transfer of a property. Our inspector will visually inspect by video scanning the internal surfaces for obstructions and combustible deposits along with the joints of all flue liners incorporated within the chimney. The inspector will also be looking for basic soundness of the chimney structure and flue; as well as the basic appliance installation and connections if applicable.

What are the limitations
on an inspection?

A real estate inspection or home inspection is not an appraisal or a check for compliance with building codes; it’s also not an evaluation of environmental hazards. See the NYS Standards of Practice for more information on the limitations of a home inspection.
