Level 1 Internal CCTV Check
This level is used before doing any work on the chimney, such as installation of a flue liner. It shows the customer or installer there are no obstructions or major faults. A very basic inspection that does not come with a report.
Level 2 Internal Survey
Using the latest industry equipment, we carry out a 360-degree internal survey of the chimney’s construction, layout and condition, while recording the video and taking still shots of areas showing cause for concern.
The camera is a fantastic tool for fault-finding and locating potential problems. Our extensive experience and contacts mean we can advise on ways to rectify problems and estimate costings.
We provide a detailed report within a week of the survey to help you make decisions – saving time and money.
Level 3 External Drone Survey
Dan Fisher has been a member of the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) as a commercial drone pilot since 2017, and holds a PfCO (Permission for Commercial Operations). This allows Dan to fly drones within CAA guidelines in order to inspect chimneys, roofs and flashings.
As chimneys are not the easiest things to inspect, the drone allows Dan and customers to see first-hand any potential problems, without incurring scaffolding costs or the risk of damaging tiles.
All images can be enlarged and emailed to the client while still at the property, giving a clear HD picture of the chimney’s condition. We can also work with our chimney and roof maintenance team to give costings and arrange possible dates.
