Chimney Inspection and Certification

Certified Craftsmen Inspection Notes

Certified Craftsmen Inc performs chimney inspections and evaluations throughout Monmouth, Ocean, and Southern Middlesex counties. Our supervisory technicians are CSIA certified. This means they have been trained to understand the current NFPA 211 and IRC codes in relation to chimney systems. We evaluate the chimneys condition based upon NFPA 211 standards. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) presented its first report and guidelines in 1906. The field practice manual was adopted in 1914. It has many amended dozens of times since to meet today's current standards. It is very important that these guidelines be followed to help reduce the hazards associated with fireplace, woodstove, and fuel-burning appliance use within the home or building.

Many times our company is called for an inspection when the homeowner actually notices a problem such as having a chimney fire, a leak, smoke coming in the house, structural failure, loose bricks/mortar etc. When the customer waits until these problems arise, many times significant damage has already occurred. With proper yearly maintenance and inspections many of these costly problems can be avoided. All of our cleanings come with a NFPA 211 Level one inspection.

Our company is also called out during real estate transactions to certify that a chimney or flue is suitable for use. Sometimes the seller knows of existing problems and still insists that our company certify the flue or chimney for use. Obviously that would be a horribly irresponsible mistake for any chimney company and could be very hazardous for the buyer. It would also wind up with the seller and inspection company in court. When we are called out for an inspection, we conduct an unbiased inspection/evaluation based upon the condition of the chimney and flue liner.
