Now is the Time to Schedule Your Chimney Inspection

During summer is the ideal time to schedule maintenance for your chimney. Scheduling in the summer means you can get it done. Then enjoy your time knowing the fireplace and chimney system will be ready to work this fall!

Avoid the Fall Rush

By scheduling your chimney inspection today you can avoid the fall rush, the time between October and January when chimney professionals are busy with emergency calls, installations, and repairs. It can be difficult and nearly impossible to get desired appointment times, technicians, and even the company you want during this time. It’s best to avoid the risk, and just schedule now. Get your inspection on the books today, so you can breathe easier tomorrow.

More Time for a Thorough Inspection

CSIA Inspections are categorized into three levels. This method means the technician only assesses the basics, unless there is a problem. If a problem is detected then a more thorough level of assessment is conducted. Depending on the condition of your chimney system, your technicians may need more time to inspect the chimney. You don’t want to be left in the cold while your chimney damage is diagnosed! Schedule the level 1 inspection now and insure you have time for any issues that may come up.

  • Level 1 Inspection
    Required if nothing has changed with your system through the year, with continued use under the same conditions. It is an assessment of the readily accessible portions of your chimney systems for basic soundness of the chimney structure. Also, basic appliance installation and connections. The technician will also look for obstruction and combustible deposits.
  • Level 2 Inspection
    Required when changes are made to the system. This includes fuel type, lining, and the replacement, repair, or installation of new equipment. This inspection is also required for the transfer of property, following a malfunction, or an event that might have caused damage to the chimney. Like the Level 1, this level inspection doesn’t require any special tools for gaining access to hidden locations. However, it does include accessible portions of the interior and exterior chimney as well as attics, crawl spaces, and basements.
  • Level 3 Inspection
    Required when serious hazards are detected in a level 2 inspection to determine the condition and safety of the chimney system. This inspection includes all the areas and items from a level 1 and 2 inspection as well as hidden portions. The technician may remove certain building and chimney components to gain necessary access to the chimney system.

More Time for Repairs

If your inspection reveals a problem with your chimney system, you will need time and money for necessary repairs before the fall. Scheduling the inspection during the summer means more time for these repairs. Summer is also easier on the wallet. If you wait until fall or winter, repair costs may come out of your holiday budget!

There’s really no reason to put off your chimney inspection. By scheduling it now, you can rest easy for the rest of the summer knowing it’s ready for the first fire of burn season.

I wanted to give 5 stars but they are very busy which meant I had a good wait for both the inspection/cleaning, then for a quote on repairs and then for the repairs. Their prices seemed a little high to me but I have nothing to compare with as they were highly recommended by someone I trust and other companies had plenty of negatives reviews which kept me from getting additional quotes. I am happy with the work and they promptly returned to fix a mistake that had been made. Chris the inspector, Jennifer in the office, and Alex and his repair crew were all pleasant and took the time to answer all of my questions. Alex and his crew even took their shoes off (it was winter) before entering my house without even being asked! So if you are not in a rush and want to ensure you chimney is as safe as possible then I think you'll be happy with Black Moose.

After a recent sweep of our chimney, it was discovered that our flue tiles were cracked. Black Moose techs were hard working, detail oriented and professional! Nice jobs guys! See you next year for my cleaning!

Excellent I highly recommend Black Moose Chimney and Stove; Kelly and Liam are awesome, they did a great job. Extremely professional, arrived early, went through everything with a fine tooth comb ensuring pellet stove was thoroughly cleaned. They also were respectful of my home, conscientious and cleaned up after themselves. Made sure stove worked prior to leaving and told me to call promptly if anything came up afterward. Will definitely use them again.

We've had Black Moose clean our chimney for a number of years.But recently, we had an emergency situation at our home involving our chimney & oil furnace flue, which was caked full of soot from a malfunctioning furnace. They came & cleaned out both flues in no time, even going up on the roof with snow on it! They cleaned up after their work in the interior rooms where the oil furnace and the woodstove are located. Great work. Reasonable prices. Very nice people. You can't go wrong with Black Moose.

Goods: The technicians know their business, very efficient in cleaning/inspection along with cleaning up after the 'dirty work'.Others: Communications could be more effective. Despite early coordination about scope of work (multiple flues within same chimney) the estimate provided did not reflect this and the final invoice was significantly more than the estimate provided.Quote for follow-on chimney relining was significantly more than that offered by other companies in the area (and far more than neighbors experienced for similar work accomplished by other companies)
