The Stovepiper offers chimney services beyond sweeping.
We specialize in wood-burning fireplaces and chimneys used for venting residential heating equipment.
We do not service gas logs, gas fireplaces, or pellet appliances. Please refer to nficertified.org to locate a qualified professional near you.
When was the last time you had your chimney inspected?
Whether you are moving into a new home, haven’t used your fireplace in a long time, or simply looking for a routine check-up, we can help you determine which level of inspection best fits your situation.
Our professionals can evaluate your system from every angle, including hard-to-reach areas such as crawl spaces and attics. We identify safety hazards, structural weaknesses, construction or installation deficiencies, general appliance condition, debris blocking your chimney & the build-up of flammable substances.
All inspections are performed under the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 211 Standard for Chimneys, Fireplaces, Vents, and Solid Fuel-Burning Appliances.
The NFPA recommends that your fireplace and chimney be inspected annually to ensure there are no potential fire hazards or damages to your chimney. Sweeping the system should be performed as needed.
