Book your level 2 chimney inspection with us today.
Did you know that scheduling a level 2 chimney inspection is an essential part of the home buying or selling process? Many think that, as long as they’ve got their home inspection completed, they’re good to go – but this is far from true.
Home inspectors aren’t required to perform a National Fire Protection Association (NFPA)-style inspection on the chimney, and they don’t have the training to spot issues we can, so there’s quite a bit they could be missing. Avoid surprises in your new home by booking with us today.
What Does a Level 2 Inspection Entail?
As you have likely assumed, a level 2 inspection is more thorough and detailed than a level 1 inspection. It includes all of the aspects of a level 1 inspection, along with:
- an examination of the attic, basement, and/or crawlspace(s)
- a video camera inspection
- an overview of fireplace clearances
- an overview of all accessible portions of the chimney (meaning tools may be required to remove doors, panels, or coverings)
Apart from the home buying/selling process, level 2 inspections are also required when making any major changes that affect the way the chimney is used (changing the fuel type, relining the flue, etc.) or if any big events happened that could have caused harm to the chimney (like a building fire, earthquake, tornado, etc.).
We’ve helped people moving to or from Union Centre Boulevard, Beckett Road, Tylersville Road, Port Union Road, Le Street Drive, Muhlhauser Road, Crescentville Road, International Boulevard, Cincinnati Dayton Road, West Chester Road, Dimmick Road, Fields Ertel Road, Butler Warren Road, Cox Road, and more – we’d love to be there for you too.
