WETT Inspections

 

What is a WETT Inspection?

Typically, when people are looking for an insurance type of inspection, a visual inspection is conducted to determine if there is evidence of any problems with the installation. This includes examining clearances, chimney heights and visual signs of deterioration. If there are concerns identified, then the inspector should make a recommendation that the appliance be checked and, if necessary, repaired by a WETT certified technician or chimney sweep.

 

What is inspected?

 

Chimney

 

Chimney Damage I always start an inspection on the roof. This is a damaged chimney that will have to be repaired prior to being deemed acceptable for use. This type of chimney damage is usually a result of not have a rain cap installed or not sealing cracks that have developed on the chimney cap. A little caulking can sometime save a home owner a lot of money.

 

Flue Tiles

 

Chimney Flue Tiles

Chimney flue tiles are inspected for cracking and proper joints. Allowing water to enter your chimeny flue is a bad idea and rain caps are very important to preserving you chimney. This chimney will require a new clay flue tile to be installed.

 

 

 

Installation

 

Wood Stove Installation

 

Wood stove and metal chimney installation is checked to ensure all components are installed in accordance with WETT guidelines and manufactures instructions.

If you are not sure about your fireplace or chimney installation or clearances, call the Barrie Home Inspector for information and common problems prior to booking an inspection.

 

 

 

Clearances

 

Wood Stove Clearances

 

Wood stoves and fireplaces all have required clearances from combustibles that must be maintained. Wood stoves have their clearances identified on ULC or other approved agency, usually on a plate at back of appliance.

Contact Barrie WETT Inspections for your woodstove, fireplace or pellet stove inspection.
