Carmel Homeowners: Book Your Next Chimney Inspection With Smalling Masonry’s Experts

Enjoying a warm and sunny day in Carmel? It’s easy to do, thanks to great outdoor spots like River Road Park, Lawrence W. Inlow Park, Meadowlark Park, West Park, and more. In addition, this thriving city has tons of great shopping, dining, and entertainment options, so staying busy isn’t difficult at all.

All that said, even great days can be tiring. If you’ve just got in after being out and about for hours, we’re guessing you just want to put up your feet, light a cozy fire, and let your muscles relax. Ensure you’re not left facing an inefficient fireplace system or smoke in your living space by investing in annual inspections with us.

Our Inspection Process Is Comprehensive

Per the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA), chimney inspections should be done annually, and they should be thorough and exhaustive. If they aren’t, you could face an increased risk of experiencing house fires, chimney fires, carbon monoxide leaks, smoke-filled rooms, chimney damage, and more.

The good news for homeowners living in the Indianapolis area – as well as countless towns and cities surrounding – is that Smalling Masonry ensures a job done right, every time.

When you hire us, rest assured you’ll get a fair, honest, and in-depth service, guaranteed. We even sweep the chimney beforehand to ensure we get the most accurate analysis. Nothing will be missed or overlooked, we don’t take shortcuts, and we won’t try to upsell things after the fact that you don’t actually need. Long story short – when you work with us, you get only the very best.

Here are some of the components you can expect us to check out during our inspection process…

  • Damper/damper handle
  • Smoke chamber
  • Chase cover
  • Rain rap
  • Storm collar
  • Brick & mortar
  • Gas lines (for gas-fueled systems)
  • Gas pressure valves (for gas-fueled systems)
  • Refractory panels, if applicable
  • Firebox
  • Heat exchange
  • Log lighter
  • …and more!

We’ll also look for any signs of water damage, masonry deterioration, liner decay, blockages, creosote buildup, and anything else that could make using your fireplace and chimney risky.
