Boston Chimney Pros Crew has years upon years of combined experience identifying chimney problems and facilitating solutions . We have likely encountered  and solved most problems or even blockages you may be experiencing . Our staff will inspect your furnace or fireplace chimney from above the roofline to the heating appliance piping or fireplace to insure safety. Our High Tech Chim-Cam Camera equipment is available to take a video shot of the inner chimney flue itself which is normally inaccesible, we take the guess work out  and leave no doubt as to conditions throughout the inner chimney. . We will take photographs and give you a point by point report and recommendations. You and your family, tenants or employees safety are our utmost concern. The National Fire Protection Association recommends that you have your chimney inspected yearly (source:  NFPA Code 211).

MOST U.S. HOMEOWNERS ARE UNAWARE THAT CHIMNEYS ARE AN INTEGRAL PART OF A HOME HEATING SYSTEM AND THAT THEY REQUIRE REGULAR EVALUATION  MAINTENANCE!

As chimney service professionals our job is  to monitor your chimney, clean (sweep) and maintain your chimney, and to prescribe changes to improve its performance and safety. We will check the condition of your chimney, firebox, damper, and flue to determine typical problems such as built up creosote, mortar deterioration, obstructions inside the flue, and malfunctioning or obsolete dampers and parts. We will alert you to any problems that we finds and provide you with a written estimate and or gauranteed proposal for any needed repairs. 

Situation and Inspection Levels Until Recently, the scope of work performed in the inspection or evaluation of a fireplace , stove or other venting system was generally up to the discretion of the chimney service technician . Professional service technicians now have an industry standard that removes much of that discretion . The National Fire Protection Association ( NFPA) has addressed the minimum chimney inspection standards in its latest publication  ( NFPA 211) concerning home heating appliances. Inspections are now classified as Level 1 , Level2 , or Level 3. Each level of inspection covers specific items depending on the individual appliance and venting system. Below is an explanation of what we will provide for each level

Level One - Annual Inspection ,  Routine Cleaning of Flue, When theres a  direct replacement  of  a Similar Appliance- LV1 inspection needed.

Level Two - Upon a Sale or transfer of property, After an operating malfunction or an external event is likely to have caused damage to a Chimney, Addition or removal of one or more connected appliances, or the replacement of an appliance with one of a different input or a rating efficiency, Prior to relining or replacement of the flue lining  Chimney Camera Service Available if needed.

Level Three - Where necessary for the investigation of an incident which has caused damage to the chimney or building. Where a hazard is detected or suspected as the result of a level 1 or level 2 inspection and the suspected hazard cannot be fully evaluated without access to concealed areas, A level 3 inspection may be required when the construction of all or part of the chimney is deemed critical to the renewed or continued use of the chimney due to potential concealed defects  

Our inspection includes all flues and covers above the roofline , in the attic if viewable, within fireplaces and heating appliances,  basement to roof. Whether your a home buyer , home owner , buyer or seller broker, know the facts and unforeseen cost of a chimney repair or needed chimney liner before the transfer of a property or hazard situation occurs call us today - 617-418-4224
