Regardless of whether your home is an older home or newer construction, chimneys face annual wear and tear, soot build-up and even animal invasion. Taking the time to ensure that your chimney is not only clean but safe prior to its heavy winter use is essential.
Whether you hire a NJ home inspector or a chimney sweep to check your chimney it is important to make sure the person you hire is competent and qualified.
