Level 1, 2, & 3 Fireplace and Chimney Inspections
Level 1 - Bethesda Chimney uses a high powered spot light to visually examine all readily accessible portions of your chimney (inside and out) by one of our experienced chimney technician. A level 1 chimney inspection should be performed to determine if the basic structure is satisfactory and that there are no visible signs of damage or danger.
Level 2 - A level 2 inspection with Bethesda Chimney includes examining all portions of a chimney including parts that can't always be seen in a regular level 1 inspection (may require a chimney camera). To include but not limited to the ash pit, the clean out, the entire smoke chamber, and all parts of the chimney flue.
Level 3 - The most comprehensive of chimney inspections and also the least common due to lack of necessity, a level 3 inspection by Bethesda Chimney will examine concealed areas of the chimney such as underneath the mortar crown, behind the interior wall to examine the original structure, and may include deconstructing entire sections of the chimney as well.
