Chimney Inspections: when level 2?
There are several specific circumstances in which a Level 2 inspection is appropriate, including a change in ownership of the home, a change in the appliance or fuel type (for example if a gas insert is being installed), before the installation of a flue liner, or after a weather or fire event that may have caused damage.
A Level 2 inspection, as expected, will include all elements of a Level 1 inspection, and more. Some of the additional activities the inspector will carry out include (but are not limited to) the following:
On conclusion of the inspection, an official report will be sent to you via e-mail that includes time-stamped photos, a summary of findings, any code violations observed, and, if applicable, an estimate for repair.
For the video scan portion of the inspection, our masons prefer the SnapScan Pro Video Inspection System for its ease of use, versatility, and image resolution. See it in action below.
