Pricing of Inspections With Cleanings
All cleaning prices include the inspection fee.
All cleaning appointments will begin with an inspection. We will never come and clean something without doing an inspection first. This is for your protection and the safety of our Technicians.
If the chimney is determined to be safe to clean, you will be quoted the price for the cleaning by the Technician.
All prices are per fireplace, per flue, per appliance, etc., and are determined by the difficulty involved in the cleaning process and whether or not your chimney is lined.
Traditional masonry fireplaces with no insert are a minimum of $225.
Freestanding wood and/or pellet stoves, wood and/or pellet stove inserts that do not need to be disassembled or pulled out, and furnace or water heater flues – start at $225.
Wood and/or pellet stoves or fireplace inserts that need to be disassembled or pulled out to clean – please contact us.
Level 1 — Non-Masonry Chimneys, $85. Minimum – no ladder required; (primarily condos with fireplace inserts and chase boxes and there are no proposed changes to be made.)
Level 1 Inspections – If your appliance or venting system has not changed and you will use your system the same as in the past, then a Level 1 inspection is the minimum requirement. A Level 1 inspection is normally recommended for a chimney under continued service, under the same conditions, and with the use of the same appliance. In a Level 1 inspection, your chimney service technician will examine the readily accessible portions of the appliance and the chimney connection, and the chimney exterior, and interior.
IF YOUR CONDO ASSOCIATION WANTS TO ORGANIZE A DAY WHERE MULTIPLE RESIDENTS CAN BE INSPECTED ALL AT THE SAME TIME WE WILL OFFER A DISCOUNTED RATE FOR 10 OR MORE IN ONE DAY.
$150 - $300 - Masonry, Cinder Block, and Stone Chimneys - (This is the category that the majority of systems fall under and is required if there are any proposed changes to be made or if there is a purchase/sale of the property involved.)
Level 2 Inspections – Level 2 inspections are required when any changes are made to the system. Changes can include: a change in the fuel type, changes to the shape of, or material in, the flue (i.e. relining), or replacement or addition of an appliance of a dissimilar type, input rating, or efficiency. Level 2 inspection is required upon the sale or transfer of a property or after an operation malfunction or external event that was likely to cause damage to the chimney. Building fires, chimney fires, seismic events, as well as, weather events are all indicators that this level of inspection is warranted.
Level 2 inspections are more in-depth than Level 1 inspections. When a Level 1 or Level 2 inspection suggests a hidden hazard and the evaluation cannot be performed without special tools to access concealed areas of the chimney or flue, a Level 3 inspection is recommended. Level 2 inspections include everything in Level 1 inspections, plus the accessible portions of the chimney exterior and interior including attics, crawl spaces, and basements. It will address proper clearances from combustibles in accessible locations.
There are no specialty tools (i.e. demolition equipment) required to open doors, panels, or coverings in performing a Level 2 inspection. A Level 2 inspection shall also include a visual inspection by video scanning or other means to examine the internal surfaces and joints of all flue liners incorporated within the chimney. No removal or destruction of permanently attached portions of the chimney or building structure or finish shall be required by a Level 2 inspection.
Level 3 Inspections - A Level 3 inspection addresses the proper construction and the condition of concealed portions of the chimney structure and the flue. Removal or destruction, as necessary, of permanently attached portions of the chimney or building structure, will be required for the completion of a Level 3 inspection.
Level 3 inspections include all the areas and items checked in a Level 1 and a Level 2 inspection, as well as the removal of certain components of the building or chimney where necessary. Removal of components (i.e., chimney crown, interior chimney walls) shall be required only when necessary to gain access to the area that is the subject of the inspection. When serious hazards are suspected, a Level 3 inspection may well be required to determine the condition of the chimney system.
Inspections for the sale of a property start at $125.
An inspection for the sale or purchase of a property should include:
All accessible portions of the chimney exterior and interior
Areas within accessible attics, crawl spaces, and basements
Accessible portions of the appliance and chimney connection
All enclosed flues
Includes inspection by video inspection or other means.
Video Inspections start at $300 - $500
