When The Leaves Fall, Chimneys Need Inspection Southwest Marietta, GA

As the leaves pile up on the lawn, the fireplace indoors entices, doesn’t it? The falling temperatures mean running your furnace and using your fireplace are about to re-enter the routine. Have you had your chimney inspected? It’s always wise to get your chimney inspected in the fall before you start adding fuel to the fire. What goes up must go out, or you’ve got big problems.

Three Levels of Chimney Inspections

There are three levels of chimney inspections, which a certified chimney sweep must perform. They can go in order, with each one determining the need for the next level.

Level One Inspection

Level one inspections are the minimal level where the interior and exterior of the chimney are examined for any visible issues. No tools are used to reach areas that aren’t easily accessible. This routine inspection is best suited when a chimney is in good repair and regularly used without any problems. Even though everything is working smoothly, it is still good to regularly have a professional chimney sweep inspect your chimney.

Level Two Inspection

Level two inspections are more in-depth. A level two inspection is needed whenever there is any change made to the chimney. These changes can include adding a flue, a chimney liner or a new fuel system. Level two inspections are also required if there has been any damage to the chimney or if the home is being sold. At this level, a certified chimney sweep uses a video camera to look at inaccessible areas of the chimney to determine if a level three inspection is needed.

Level Three Inspection

A level three chimney inspection is much more in-depth. It will include dismantling a portion of the chimney or the building to get a more detailed view of the problem. A level three inspection is called for when damage is sighted in a level one or two inspection. A level three inspection can be quite extensive, but it is needed to determine the extent of a chimney problem and repair it properly. Once the repair has been made, the damage incurred to reach it is also repaired, leaving you with a fully functioning chimney in your beautiful home.

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.
