My homeowners association requires me to have my chimney inspected every 3 years. They provided Ashed Up Up and Away as a certified inspector. They knelt in front of the chimney and looked up with a flashlight and said its ok. It literally took 5 seconds, absolutely no exaggeration. That was $70. They then hooked a meter up to my clothes dryer vent to measure airflow. At least that took a couple minutes to unhook and rehook up the vent hose. But another $70. So $140 for a few minutes work. I hope my homeowners association got a kickback because the most expensive attorney or brain surgeon doesn't get $140 for 5 minutes work.
