What Are the Three Levels of a Chimney Inspection? Southwest Marietta, GA

It may be hot now, but Old Man Winter is coming! Is your chimney ready for cold weather? Neglecting your chimney can lead to serious safety hazards. Anglin’s Foundation & Mason Repairs is your North Georgia chimney expert. Our chimney inspections cover all three levels for a complete analysis. If problems are present, we’ll find and repair them so you are ready for winter.

Level 1 Chimney Inspection

A Level 1 chimney inspection is the most basic and is recommended for chimneys that are regularly used and in good condition. During a Level 1 inspection, we will examine the readily accessible portions of the chimney, including the interior and exterior. Our professionals check for any signs of damage, such as cracks or missing bricks, and make sure the chimney is structurally sound.

Our inspector will also look for any obstructions in the flue and check that the chimney is properly lined. We will also ensure that the chimney is up to code and that the proper clearance exists between the chimney and combustible materials.

Level 2 Chimney Inspection

A Level 2 chimney inspection is a more in-depth inspection recommended for chimneys that have undergone any changes or had any problems. This includes chimneys that have experienced a fire, earthquake or other catastrophic event.

During a Level 2 inspection, your Anglin’s Foundation & Masonry Repairs inspector will perform all the checks and examinations of a Level 1 inspection, but they will also use special equipment, such as a camera, to inspect the interior of the chimney. This allows them to see any hidden damage or obstructions that may not be visible during a Level 1 inspection.

A Level 2 inspection is typically required when a property is sold or transferred or when a new appliance is installed in the chimney.

Level 3 Chimney Inspection

A Level 3 chimney inspection is the most in-depth inspection and is generally recommended in cases where a severe hazard is suspected. This includes situations with a chimney fire or when the chimney has suffered severe damage.

During a Level 3 inspection, our skilled inspector will perform all of the checks and examinations of Level 1 and 2 inspections, but they will also remove specific chimney components to gain access to hidden areas. This may include removing parts of the chimney structure or even the wall or ceiling surrounding the chimney.

Thorough Chimney Inspections in Atlanta

Having your chimney inspected regularly is an integral part of maintaining the safety and integrity of your home. Whether you need Level 1, 2, or 3 inspections depends on the condition of your chimney and any past problems or changes. A professional from Anglin’s Foundation & Masonry Repairs in Marietta can help you identify any potential hazards and recommend the necessary repairs to make your chimney safe and fully functional, so you are ready to build a crackling fire when the first snowflake falls.

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.

Penelope Greensmith

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.
