What Does A Chimney Scope Inspection
Give Me That A Level I Does Not?

With a Chimney Scope Inspection. you are getting an evaluation of many more of the components of a fireplace system than our standards of practice require.

This also ensures that all of your reports are received within your contingency deadlines; deciding to add this service on at a later time could mean that we are not available for several days, and may not be available within your contingency window, leaving you unable to negotiate for certain repairs.
