A chimney inspection is essential in helping to protect your home from fire, carbon monoxide poisoning, water damage, and structural issues. It is the best method for detecting cracks or other problems in your Rochester, NY, chimney before it grows into a more extensive and costly repair. At Felgemacher Masonry & Chimney, our expert technicians have kept our customers safe for over six decades. We inspect chimneys and heating appliances in communities throughout the Greater Rochester Metropolitan area.

Level Two Video Chimney Inspection, Rochester NYThe Three Levels of a Professional Chimney Inspection

Felgemacher Masonry & Chimney of Rochester is owner-certified by the Chimney Safety Institute of America. This is your assurance that we will conduct your chimney inspection per National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) industry standards.

The Felgemacher team is qualified to perform all three NFPA chimney inspection levels in the Rochester Metropolitan area and surrounding Monroe County communities.

Level 1:

This is the standard annual visual inspection that examines the visible portions of the chimney system, including the masonry, flue liner, chimney crown, smoke chamber, and other components.

The inspector will provide a detailed assessment outlining recommended repairs to ensure your chimney, vents, and attached gas or wood-burning fireplace or heating stove are structurally sound, efficient, and safe for use.

Level 2:

This is an intermediate inspection that includes everything in a level 1 inspection, plus a video scan of the flue. A chimney scan helps our experienced technicians detect early signs of wear or damage that may not be seen in a standard visual inspection. A level 2 inspection is typically recommended when any of the following issues are present:

  • You are selling or buying a home.
  • There was a fire in the chimney.
  • It is suspected that a recent hurricane, tornado, lightning strike, or other significant event has damaged the chimney or its components.
  • You are installing a new heating appliance or changing the fuel source, i.e., converting from wood to gas.
  • It has been more than one year since your last chimney inspection.

Level 3:

This is an advanced chimney inspection that we conduct when a level 1 or level 2 inspection indicates the presence of severe damage in an inaccessible area of the chimney. As a result, a level three inspection may require removing or destroying a component in an inaccessible portion of the duct to locate and repair the damage, such as from a water leak, foundation cracks, or other structural issues.
