Have a NJ home inspection before having the first fire in your fireplace. A cleaning of the chimney is one thing, inspecting it is another. Everyone loves a fire in colder weather, aside from the heat there is a certain ambiance that cannot be replicated any other way. Making sure this feature in your home is safe before you start using it for the winter is essential.
Your New Jersey home inspector will have a thorough checklist for your fireplace inspection, including the chimney, the flue, and the firebox. It is important to make sure that there are no cracks where fire can escape or where sparks can wedge themselves. Knowing your fireplace is safe can enable you to enjoy the warmth and coziness a fire creates.
