Fiddler on the Roof Chimney Sweep has been providing chimney inspections for the real estate industry since 1982. Our highly trained staff of certified chimney technicians can provide you with a comprehensive report that includes digital photos, building codes, industry standard references and any recommended repairs. If requested, an exact cost of repair can be supplied with the report. We can provide fast, convenient scheduling and report turnaround time. Reports can be e-mailed, faxed or mailed. We offer inspections that meet the National Fire Protection Agency’s ( NFPA ) 211 standard for fireplace evaluation.
This is a visual inspection of the readily accessible areas of the chimney structure and flue. The chimney sweep will be able to give you a basic condition report after this inspection. We inspect the readily accessible areas of the chimney in the living area and at the exterior of the home. Some of the areas covered are the firebox, damper, and smoke chamber. Outside, the spark arrestor will be checked to make sure it does not restrict the draft, and that it meets local building codes. The structure will be checked for basic soundness and any evidence of deterioration. This inspection should be done every one to three years.
Keeping your chimney clear of combustion deposits will assure your chimney operates efficiently, while limiting your exposure to a chimney fire; an uncontrolled 2000 degree fire inside your chimney. Our trained sweeps will mask off the fireplace opening, a vacuum will be running inside the firebox, and a drop cloth will be placed on the floor. The soot and creosote deposits are scraped off the walls of the flue and the smoke chamber with brushes attached to flexible poles. The damper, smoke shelf, and hearth are cleaned of any debris. Our methods insure that there is no mess in your home, in fact we guarantee it. The cleaning may take up to an hour, and should be done every one to three years depending on use, or when you move into a new home.
A masonry chimney should have a flue or rain cap installed on top. The expanded metal spark arrestor meets California code requirements. The spark arrester will stop large burning embers from escaping the chimney and it will also keep animals and debris from getting into the chimney. On top of the wire mesh box sits a metal lid to keep out rain water. It is essential to keep the rain water out of your chimney; it can cause an odor when it mixes with soot, when mixed with soot it creates an acid that breaks down mortar, and it can drip on the damper-causing it to rust and warp. Metal flue pipe should also have the proper manufacturer specified spark arrestor/termination installed on top.
A chimney without a damper is costing you money – as much as 30% of your heat and air conditioning can go up the chimney. We can provide a top damper that fits into a flue cap. This stainless steel damper easily opens and closes with a spring loaded pull chain mounted on the firebox wall. We also install blade dampers in the throat of the chimney.
This gas fueled rigid pipe supplying heat to your wood can really make getting your fire started easy. We install and/or replace ones that have worn out.
We provide a full spectrum of masonry repairs; including exterior tuck pointing, crown wash repairs/replacements, and replacing those worn out firebox bricks with new extruded fire brick.
For those fireplaces and chimneys that just will not draw properly on their own, we recommend a chimney fan. Quiet, maintenance free, and energy efficient – the perfect solution.
We offer a lifetime warranty on stainless steel liners.
GAS LOGS / GLASS DOORS / MESH SPARK CURTAINS
We can provide complete custom installation of gas logs, glass doors, and interior mesh spark screens. Call us for an estimate appointment.
Dual purpose firebacks can protect the firebox bricks from excessive wear and tear caused by heat and provide 20% to 40% more heat in the room where you can enjoy it.
