Re: Sex [Fireplace Chimney Check]

Just had ours inspected. We were not planning to, but we had a peek through the inspection cover in the attic, and discovered that a chunk of the liner was 'not there'. I suspect it's been like that for years.

Cue chimney sweep. He said, yes it needs to be repaired, you can contact this local guy, but you can go on using the fireplace it in the meantime, as otherwise it's fine.

Local guy came around, said yup, 15 min job to fix. He came around again about 7 yesterday evening, and repaired it.

Now he will contact the chimney sweep via the secret handshake channels so that he can come around and clean it.

I was expecting the worst case - i.e., "oh, well, you need a new chimney liner for ca. 2x10^6 CHF mate", but it wasn't so.
