One of the most important areas of home inspection is the fireplace and the chimney system. But chimneys often vent more than just fireplaces. They also vent furnaces, boilers and various types of stoves burning a variety of fuels. Often as a home inspector you are faced with the responsibility of inspecting these devices within the realm of the standard of care of the home inspection industry. It is an area that traditionally carries with it a high risk of issues and call backs, but now there is the training you need to do chimney inspections with expertise and understanding.

Increase your expertise in fireplaces and chimneys, both masonry and factory built, by attending Chimney & Fireplace Inspection Course For Home Inspectors. Learn from one of the leading experts in the industry in a classroom setting where you will be presented the information in a way that you can digest it and put it to work for you.
