There are a few different reasons you might need to look into getting a chimney inspection in Essex County. Guardian Chimney offers level 2 Chimney inspections, and we can come to your home and provide you with a detailed and thorough chimney inspection. Here are a few of the most common situations that could cause you to call us to inspect at your chimney.
Buying or Selling a Home
When you are buying a home, you have the home inspected by a professional home inspector. But did you know that some home inspectors do not give the chimney and fireplace a very thorough or detailed inspection? A chimney inspection from us can help prevent you from expensive chimney repairs later on down the road. And if you are the seller, a documented chimney inspection could help you from future claims or problems.
Damage from the Weather
Severe weather can hit no matter what time of day it is. And here in New Jersey, we are certainly used to our fair share of thunderstorms, hurricanes, blizzards and more. A chimney inspection can help figure out if your chimney sustained any damage during the weather event. And if we find out that your chimney was damaged, we can recommend the necessary repairs to ensure it is safe for you and your family to use again.
Damage from a Fire
When the worst happens and a fire breaks out, it can cause structural damage to your chimney. So if you experience a house fire, a chimney inspection is a necessity. We can inspect your chimney to see the damage it sustained and what needs to be done to fix it. And if the fire was caused by your chimney, an inspection could help figure out where the fire originated.
Prepare it for Use
If your chimney and fireplace have been sitting unused for awhile, a chimney inspection from Guardian Chimney can ensure it is safe to use. When we inspect it, if we notice any damage, we can tell you what kind of repair work needs to be done in order to make it safe for use again. A chimney inspection can help mitigate the risk of a fire or carbon monoxide poisoning.
These are just a handful of the reasons you might need a chimney inspection. There are several other reasons too, but these four are the most frequent reasons we are contacted for our chimney inspection services.
