I have a dilemma - while doing a listing inspection, I discovered that the elderly gent that is selling has installed non-venting gas logs in a wood-burning masonry fireplace. While checking the damper, I found that the damper had been removed. When I inquired as to the damper, He told be it broke 5 years ago, so he filled 6" of the chimney flue at the roof with concrete, and installed the gas log unit. When I was up on the roof, Sure enough, flue was plugged.
I am just not sure how to, or what to report on this one - any Ideas?
