TOPIC: Inspection for fireplace???

Inspection for fireplace??? 10 years 4 days ago #22670

Had a call from a gentleman today, asking if I could do an inspection on his cabin's wood burning stove.  His insurance company wants verification that it was "installed professionally" (his words).  I stated I wasn't a code inspector, and it would be out of my expertise to state definitively that it was "installed professionally".  I'm thinking of referring him to a local HVAC contractor, since I don't know if I want to touch this with a 10 foot pole; "insurance" and his wording of the policy are making me leery...any thoughts?

If you're not comfortable doing this type of inspection then you have most certainly done the right thing Casey!

Good job.

Did a little research, referred my earlier caller to a local chimney sweep/inspector.  He didn't sound happy that I wasn't willing to look at it, but he seemed to appreciate that I took the time to look someone up.  Good deed for the day...;)

Are you going with the chimney sweep/inspector so you can learn a few things? Might be a good opportunity since you got him the job.

That's a great idea...I'll call the client back and see what he decided tomorrow.
