Now is the Time to Arrange a Chimney Inspection Southwest Marietta, GA
Chimney Inspection

With the warm Georgia summer finally here, you won’t be expecting to make use of your fireplace or wood burning stove for some time. Accordingly, this is the perfect time of year to arrange your annual chimney inspection. If any potential problems are discovered, you have ample time to arrange appropriate repairs. When the cold weather returns, you will know your flue is in peak condition.

Statistically, summer is the time of year that Georgia residents are more likely to move into a new property. There are many stresses involved with moving, but it is important not to forget to have the chimney of your new home inspected as soon as possible.

What Is Involved with a Chimney Inspection?

The kind of inspection you will need depends on a number of factors. The minimal level of assessment involves checking that the chimney and flue are sound in structure and free of blockages. If you have your chimney inspected annually and don’t make any changes (such as switching from wood burning to gas), this could be all you need to confirm everything is in working order.

Changing the fuel source or the structure of your flue might necessitate a more in-depth inspection. If you have experienced an event that might have damaged your chimney, such as a fire or extreme weather conditions, ensure that you advise your inspector. He will examine all the internal surfaces of your chimney system and the external portions concealed in attics and crawl spaces.

If any inspection suggests that a hazard may have developed, it may become necessary to remove parts of the chimney structure. This allows a proper examination of concealed areas, such as behind the chimney crown or interior wall.

A real estate inspection will have been conducted as part of purchasing your new property. However, when it comes to your chimney and flue, this is likely to have been a cursory once-over at best, and conducted by someone with little knowledge of potential hazards. Avoid being surprised by costly repairs or damage to your property and possessions by arranging a professional evaluation prior to closing the sale.

Tammy S.

From start to finish, everyone at Anglin's was amazing! Gus was responsive, always answered his phone, knowledgeable, professional, honest and fair. He went above and beyond to make a stressful situation less stressful. Scheduling was a breeze and the crew that arrived on the job (on time, I might add) were courteous, respectful and efficient. They allowed me to watch and take pictures, and explained the process step-by-step, as well as what results were to be expected. Iggy was so knowledgeable, professional and amazing. He was able to pin point a problem that 2 other competing companies couldn't explain or relay in layman's terms what needed to be done and why. He was an absolute superstar in easing the mind of the buyers purchasing the house. His 27 years experience was so valuable. Shelly was quick to send paid invoices and warranty information. Everyone did an amazing job and I would recommend them highly.

I cannot say enough good things about GUS at Anglin’s Foundation and Masonry! GUS, was fast and gave a free estimate on raising, reattaching and fixing my brick stairs. I will be sure to post before and after photos! Thank you GUS for your no nonsense, straight forward approach! Thank you for listening to me! The Greensmith’s

Regina Renee Kalasz

Today was a install of a 2nd beam for our house... first one was easy, 2nd one gave them a run for their money. But they stuck it out and got it done! Awesome work! I'd throw a + behind my 5 stars if I could. Sorry I held your crew up, but they were determined to get it done with no issues. So shout out to your team Chris, Leo and Dan!

Scott Lapin

The team that lifted our chimney was prompt, courteous and efficient. Other then the repair, you simply could not tell they were even there despite the fact they had to remove part of our deck to do the work. I would HIGHLY recommend them.

Melissa Reed

Diagnosis and estimate from a picture, arrived as scheduled, done in just a couple hours and results were absolutely amazing. Price, workmanship, clean up - everything was absolutely 5 star!! Highly recommend these folks!!! I must add, 2 other well known and much advertised companies came out and estimated 6x the work and price, claiming we had more issues than what was actually going on. These guys call it like it is - honesty and integrity are hard to find in construction.

Dana Brennan

This crew is top notch. Worked with the office and mainly with Gus on site who was great. Showed up early, super knowledgeable, tons of experience. We really felt served in the way he recommended only what needed to be done and at a great price. Had another company wanting to add in other extras and unnecessary work. HIGHLY recommend Anglin!!

Aaron Gray

Quick to call back and totally honest. I wasn't sure if I had a foundation issue or a flooring issue but after a few questions, Nathan helped to figure out that it thankfully wasn't a foundation issue. Insteand of trying to sell me a job, Nathan helped me to make a good decision. I hope I never have foundation issues but if I do, this is the company I'm hiring.

Jake Herman

Another masonry contractor referred us to Anglin because we had a concern about the structural integrity of our chimneys. We were told that they were the best people to talk to. I called them and they actually came by to assess my house within two hours. Although I was fully prepared to spend a lot of money to stabilize my chimneys, he did a full assessment and very honestly told me that my chimneys were fine and just needed some caulking where the mortar met the brick. I greatly respect his expertise and honesty and would recommend him without reservation.
