Capital Masonry also does chimney inspections. We base our chimney inspections on these safety codes of the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) and backs its findings with remedies & repairs accepted by the NFPA. The NFPA recommends an annual evaluation of all chimneys, fireplaces and vents.
There are several reasons for chimney inspections. First chimney inspectios help to assure chimney integrity for all types of fuels including oil, gas, wood or coal. Another reason is to check for damage, cracks, and voids that may allow smoke and exhaust into the home. They also help to note flammable creosote which builds up on the walls of the chimney with use, which will require cleaning. Finally chimney inspections alert you to evidence of water penetration. Rainwater penetration damage is a major cause of chimney deterioration.
At Capital Masonry we do several chimney inspections each year on homes all over the Kansas City area. We inspect chimneys in homes helping to keep your home safe.
