Traditional Brick, Prefabricated Chimneys Only.
A level 1 chimney inspection is the most common type of chimney
inspection. If you have used your fireplace regularly in the past without
experiencing any problems, a level 1 inspection is appropriate. With a
level 1 inspection, the chimney technician will examine the readily
accessible portions of your chimney. This means the technician will
perform a visual inspection with a flashlight, examining all areas of your
chimney and flue that can be viewed without any special tools. Your
technician may use common tools such as a screwdriver or pliers to
examine any openings, but there should be no damage to any
structures or finishes.
