Professional Chimney Inspections
Annual chimney inspections can save you big money on extensive repairs down the line. We’ll spot trouble and solve the problem the right way.
Level 1 chimney inspection: This is the most common inspection and includes a thorough visual assessment of the visible areas of the chimney and its components.
Level 2 chimney inspection: Level 2 inspections include the use of specialized video technology to see inside the flue and are called for when:
- The house is being sold
- A new appliance is being connected to the chimney or system modifications are being made
- Damage from a chimney fire or other event has occurred or is suspected
Level 3 chimney inspection: A comprehensive inspection performed when significant structural damage has been detected by a previous inspection; Level 3 inspections often involve the removal of sections of the chimney and/or adjacent home building materials.
Chimney Chase Tops, Chimney Caps, Flue Covers – Repair & Installation
Protection at the top of your chimney is critical. This is accomplished with chimney caps and flue covers on masonry chimneys and chimney chase covers on factory-made chimneys. By keeping water and debris away from the chimney structure and out of the flue, these components extend a chimney’s life by preventing damage.
Felgemacher’s experienced technicians repair and install chimney caps, flue covers and chase tops throughout Webster and other Western New York communities. If your chimney has no cap, or if it has only a basic flue cover, we recommend having a full hip and ridge custom chimney cap installed. These full-width chimney caps cover and protect the entire top of the chimney.
Fireplace, Heating Stove & Fireplace Insert Sales & Installation
If you’re looking to upgrade a sluggish masonry fireplace, a powerful new fireplace insert is your solution. For supplemental heating in main rooms and smaller rooms, zero-clearance fireplaces and free-standing stoves are ideal choices. You can see them all at Felgemacher’s hearth store, Holiday Fireplace Shop located at 2727 Broadway Suite 5 in Buffalo NY.
We’re happy to help you learn about the differences between fireplaces, stoves and fireplace inserts and guide you in selecting the ideal unit for your square footage, heat-output and aesthetic requirements. The Felgemacher team can then properly install your new unit in compliance with all manufacturer specs and local building and fire-safety regulations. Contact a hearth specialist at (716) 482-1820.
