Three Levels of Chimney Inspections
At Lockwood Construction LLC, we are immensely proud of the wide range of chimney services that we offer all our residential clients in Andover. One of the most important services that we offer in this respect is our thorough and detailed chimney inspection. Our chimney service is three-pronged and includes three different levels:
- Level One: A level one inspection is recommended for a busy chimney that is under continued service. This is particularly true if your chimney is under the same conditions and with the continued use of the same appliance. In a level one inspection, our chimney inspection technicians will examine the chimney’s interior, exterior as well as the readily accessible portions of the appliance and chimney connection.
- Level Two: In general, we at Lockwood Construction LLC recommend that our residential clients in Blaine invest in a level two inspection service if there have been any changes made to the system. This can include but is not limited to a change to the fuel type, alterations to the shape of or material in the flue or a full replacement being installed. On top of that, a level two inspection is mandatory if a property has been sold or transferred, or if an external event has caused excessive damage to the structural integrity of your home’s chimney. At Lockwood Construction LLC, all our level two inspections also include a visual inspection by video scanning or any other means.
- Level Three: In essence, a level three inspection includes all the areas and items checked in a level one and level two inspection but also includes the removal of certain parts of the chimney where necessary. These parts can include the chimney crown and the interior chimney wall. When serious fire hazards are suspected, a level three inspection may be required to determine the condition of the chimney’s system and to determine what parts may need to be removed.
