If you are buying or selling a home, then an inspection is something you’ll need to invest in right away. Inspections ensure everything is looking good and that any potential issues with the home are out in the open. It also ensures no one overpays for a property that needs more time, work, and money than expected.
Now, one thing many people look for in a future living space is a fireplace. There’s no doubt that a well functioning fireplace and chimney increase the value of a home. Due to their warmth, efficiency, and great heat output, families all throughout our service area get joy and comfort from them year after year.
Unfortunately, many assume that home inspections cover the chimney, too. Not the case! Home inspectors are not required to inspect the chimney and many will actually recommend hiring a professional chimney company to get this job done for you. Before any papers are signed for the sale of a house, you’ll want to get a CSIA certified expert on the job!
What Type Of Inspection Do I Need?
Most homeowners invest in level one inspections every year, but selling a property requires one step up from that. Level one inspections are just fine for people who use and maintain the same home heating appliance, whether it is a fireplace, furnace, or wood stove year after year. They can also indicate necessary additional repairs or cleanings. However, the sale or purchase of a home requires a level two inspection.
A level two inspection is similar to a level one, only it is a bit more in depth. The sweep will actually use a digital camera to thoroughly inspect the entire flue for performance and safety issues.
