Chimney Inspections In Santa Clarita
Level I and Level II inspections provided by F.I.R.E. certified inspectors.
The Mazza Inspection Group provides an unbiased, 3rd party inspection of your fireplace / chimney using the most advanced technology available. When we are speaking of fireplace systems, there are various types of fireplace structures. For example, these units include masonry, metal, factory built, precast, cast in place and prefabricated fireplaces.
While most want to enjoy the warmth of a fireplace in their home, they need to know that the fireplace and chimney are structurally as well as functionally safe.
Many fireplaces may call for more than just a level I visual inspection. That said, we provide a more in-depth inspection, also known as a level II inspection. In most cases, this type of inspection includes a scope of the flue using a camera system by a professional. In other words, a camera is inserted from the bottom and works its way through the flue liner all the way to the top.
Afterwards, we provide a computer generated report with video and picture images. Furthermore, this report will include the condition of the fireplace / chimney and approximate repair costs. Keep in mind that we do not perform repairs but referrals of recommended licensed companies are available upon request.
