This critical inspection is required when there have been any changes made to the system. This could include a fuel type change, the relining of the flue or the replacement or addition of an appliance that has a different input rating or efficiency. A Level II inspection is also required in the transfer or sale of the property. This can also include operator malfunction or another external event that may have created damage to the chimney. A chimney fire, home fire or a catastrophic event are indicators that this Level II inspection is needed. This includes everything in a Level I inspection plus the accessible portions of the chimney exterior as well as interior including the attic, basement and crawl spaces checking for proper clearances from combustibles in these locations.
A Level II Inspection is of vital importance if your home has experienced ANY changes to the system. This could be a traumatic weather event like a tornado, earthquake or hurricane. Another need for this type of inspection is if you have experienced a fire in the chimney or flue. Also when buying a new home or selling a home. This inspection comprises everything as in the Level I inspection in addition to areas of the attic, basement or crawl spaces. It will also properly address clearances from combustibles in these accessible locations.
