Excuse my ignorance but is there really that much you can see from the top that you wouldn’t see from looking through the bottom? I look down when i can but I have a family and I’m not getting that high if i don’t have to.
Michael. Thank you very much for that link. I have never inspected a chimney that did not need to be cleaned and reevaluated. I can now quote the CSIA and how they recommend all chimneys to have a level 2 inspection when the home is sold.
Just so the Canadians know we have three levels also.
Level 1 is a “SITE BASIC” Readily Accessible
Level 2 “” “” Accessible
Level 3 “” “” Conceal Accessible
So when offering a WETT Inspection for Insurance purpose it is “Site Basic” Readily accessible and when doing **Investigations **you must go with concealed accessible this is generally done after some problem is discovered with the installation.
