The First Step Towards Successful Troubleshooting: An Inspection

If your chimney cap blows off during a storm, you have a pretty clear idea of what kind of repairs you need. The same goes for a throat damper that comes off of the track it’s seated on. However, not all problems are obvious, and that’s where the expert troubleshooting knowledge of a trained and certified chimney technician comes in.

The best way to get a solid, detailed look into your chimney system and how its various parts are functioning is through a professional chimney inspection.

Chim Cheree, The Chimney Specialists’ technicians perform chimney inspections based on the guidelines developed by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA). These guidelines were made to ensure that homeowners get a thorough and accurate appraisal of the state of their system — and that’s exactly what we want, too.

If you call Chim Cheree with a problem, we’ll inspect your system to see what’s working and what isn’t – as well as what’s safe and what isn’t. You can expect a thorough documentation of the entire process, including pictures documenting everything we find, plus a detailed run-down of what we recommend and why. Mysterious chimney problems can be frustrating! We’re here to remove the mystery and make sure you’re informed.

When we locate the source of your problems, we’ll make honest recommendations for repairs or action. When you have Chim Cheree technicians repair or restore your chimney system, you can expect the care of a trusted neighbor. All of our technicians live and work in Upstate South Carolina and the surrounding area!
