Chimney Inspections

Village Chimney Sweep provides in-depth chimney inspections for new home owners and real estate agents. We also provide service to anyone looking to make their home safer.
A few key inspection points to follow:

  • In order to prevent rain, debris, and animals from entering your chimney, there should always be a cap with a screen on the chimney.
  • Inspect the foundation of the mortar. Sometimes the weather may do damage to the exposed mortar or bricks.  A reset or re-pointing should fix the problem.
  • Check and see if there is excessive creosote buildup on the flue liner, along with cracked flue tiles. A Village Chimney Sweep will be recommended if it has been a while between cleanings. As your chimney accumulates more and more buildup, you start to run a higher risk of a chimney fire.
  • Check for defective gaskets.

A chimney inspection helps the life of the chimney last longer and will practically pay for itself in the long run. Call now 307-880-4351
