Custom Masonry's chimney sweeps perform an inspection to ensure your fireplace is safe to use. You will received a full inspection report for your records and an estimate on any repairs if needed. Our sweeps are Certified by the Chimney Institue of America and follow all guidelines by the National Fire Protection Association.
A Level 2 inspection is required when any changes are made to the system. Changes can include a change in the fuel type, changes to the shape of, or material in, the flue (i.e. relining), or the replacement or addition of an appliance of a dissimilar type, input rating or efficiency. Additionally, a Level 2 inspection is required upon the sale or transfer of a property or after an operation malfunction or external event that is likely to have caused damage to the chimney. Building fires, chimney fires, seismic events as well as weather events are all indicators that this level of inspection is warranted.
There are no specialty tools (i.e. demolition equipment) required to open doors, panels or coverings in performing a Level 2 inspection. A Level 2 inspection shall also include a visual inspection by video scanning or other means in order to examine the internal surfaces and joints of all flue liners incorporated within the chimney. No removal or destruction of permanently attached portions of the chimney or building structure or finish shall be required by a Level 2 inspection.
When a Level 1 or Level 2 inspection suggests a hidden hazard and the evaluation cannot be performed without special tools to access concealed areas of the chimney or flue, a Level 3 inspection is recommended. A Level 3 inspection addresses the proper construction and the condition of concealed portions of the chimney structure and the flue. Removal or destruction, as necessary, of permanently attached portions of the chimney or building structure will be required for the completion of a Level 3 inspection. A Level 2 inspection includes everything in a Level 1 inspection, plus the accessible* portions of the chimney exterior and interior including attics, crawl spaces and basements. It will address proper clearances from combustibles in accessible locations.

Jason and the team at Custom Masonry were AMAZING. They were quick, clean, punctual, easy to work with, and Jason even made himself available off-hours (several times) to answer my million questions and to make sure I was fully informed about the work. The team was polite, communicative, and did great work - cannot say enough good things about this company. HIGHLY recommend!
The owner Jason came over to do my inspection and was very friendly, very professional, and took the time to show me the scope camera and give me a good explanation of everything...answering all my questions. That's better than I have been getting for 17 years. And he found issues that other people either ignored or overlooked. He even gave me advice if I decided to talk to other people or get second opinions on what he found. His prices were clear from the start, and he truly is a local company. Plus he is using Internet payments through Square...didn't need to seek out a checkbook or anything. His estimates are delivered online and you can do all scheduling online, and choose to be contacted via phone or text or email. I'm gonna make this guy my yearly inspector, and have him do the work to make my fireplace right.
Jason was great! He came out and was super professional. I was having the inspection done on a rental property and he walked me through all of the details of what the management company had done prior to us moving in. Wonderful experience and definitely worth the piece of mind to understand the condition of the fireplace prior to use! Would highly recommend!
I highly recommend them for their customer service and work etiquette and the quality of work, the owner Jason was very hands on throughout the entire process, he was willing to education my claims rep, and answer any questions she had. My husband and I are completely satisfied with the work that was done
Just had Kyle at my home to inspect and clean my 2 chimney's and he was very professional and knowledgeable. I've just purchased my home and knew nothing about chimney care or even how to work it. Kyle was helpful and did a great job. Very courteous to ensure my carpet was covered before beginning. Highly recommend Custom Masonry! Will definitely be reaching out in the future for my chimney needs.

"I was negotiating a real estate contract and in a bit of a time crunch but Jason was able to work me in on short notice to do a chimney inspection. He was thorough with his explanation of the scope of work, explained further maintenance items that needed to be addressed, and gave me estimates quickly. I recommend Custom Masonry and will certainly use them again in the future."
