Quality Chimney Inspections From Guardian Roofing & Chimneys
According to the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association), your chimney should be inspected once a year and cleaned every year as needed (depending on the design of the chimney and depending on usage—including the amount of wood burned). Having your chimney regularly inspected helps to make sure that you’re alerted to any potential problems before they become dangerous or costly.
What You Can Expect When A Guardian Roofing & Chimney Technician Inspects Your Chimney:
- Conduct a visual inspection of the inside portion of your fireplace.
2. Go up on your roof and do a visual inspection of the portion of your chimney above the roof.
3. Put down protective floor coverings in front of your fireplace.
4. Inspect your chimney using video scanning equipment and our custom chimney inspection kit that displays pictures of your flue on an LCD screen. These images are used to determine if cracks or voids exist and if a cleaning is needed.
5. If needed, sweep the firebox, damper, smoke shelf, smoke chamber, flue, and gas logs (if appropriate).
6. Provide a written report describing the condition of the chimney and show you pictures of any potential problems discovered in the system.
7. Clean up all work areas.
No work is ever done without customer authorization after an estimate of the cost. Our customers are encouraged to ask questions; we want you to understand the process and the result. For more information on what to expect when we inspect your chimney, view the video below.

The Basis Of A Chimney Inspection Includes:
Based on a visual inspection, our chimney professional will give you a written condition report. We inspect the readily-accessible areas of your chimney in the living area and at the exterior of your home, including the firebox, damper, and smoke chamber. Outside, we check to make sure the chimney cap meets code and does not restrict the draft. We also check for structural soundness and evidence of deterioration.
It is recommended that an inspection be done before beginning modifications to your chimney or stove heating system, during a change in property ownership, or after a chimney fire or natural disaster. We use a special camera system to look inside your chimney and complete a comprehensive visual inspection. A detailed written report then outlines any areas of concern.
A chimney has several concealed areas. Whether it is the internal metal flue pipe, or the unexposed brick of a masonry structure, sometimes it may be necessary to remove parts of your chimney to inspect the area in question if the technician needs to investigate further.
