All About Level 2 Inspections
If you’ve owned a fireplace for quite some time, then you may be aware that there are three levels of inspections. Level one inspections include an overview of all easily accessible parts of the chimney and fireplace. We’ll check for any damages and ensure that no repair work is necessary, so you can feel good about lighting fires in the seasons ahead. If you haven’t undergone any major changes or reconstruction and plan on using your system just as you have throughout previous years, a level one inspection should be all that’s necessary.
A level two inspection, on the other hand is more in-depth and requires the use of more equipment. It includes everything required in a level one inspection, plus an overview of your rooftop, attic, and crawlspace. This is also where the video equipment comes out! Every nook and cranny of your system will get reviewed, ensuring you know of any potential issues regarding the chimney and fireplace.
Keep in mind, as well, that a level two inspection won’t require the removal or demolition of any chimney parts. You don’t need to worry about us taking anything apart or possibly harming the structure of your chimney. By the end of it all, we’ll have a thorough analysis of the state of your unit, so you can rest easy throughout the rest of your move!
