Chimney Fire Damage Insurance

Did you know that most chimney fires are invisible? Despite their invisibility, chimney fires can be deadly. Without regular cleaning and maintenance, a substance called creosote can build up in your chimney flue and alight, causing dangerous cracks, leaks, and damage to your chimney over time. This damage can be devastating, leading to full-blown house fires or even carbon monoxide poisoning for the inhabitants of the house.
If you’ve experienced a chimney fire, or think that your chimney may have experienced one of these “invisible” chimney fires, Irish Chimney Specialists can help.
Irish Chimney Specialists are experts when it comes to the reporting and repair of chimney fire damage for insurance claims. We offer a reliable, professional and HETAS accredited surveying and reporting service for your home after a chimney fire. Our comprehensive service includes a camera survey to assess the internal damage of your chimney, as well as an external inspection where we will assess the outer damage of your chimney from your roof and attic. All structures and parts of your chimney will be assessed internally and externally, from the flue to the stack and cap, to ensure that we cover everything and can get a wide idea of the total damage caused by the fire. From this we can write up a detailed insurance report explaining the extent damage caused by the chimney fire, and offer a transparent and honest quote to your insurance provider when filing a claim.
