Our professional credentials are very important to us, and we would like to tell you more about what they mean to you as a customer.
Knowledge and Training
When you hire chimney professionals who have been certified by the CSIA and the NFI, you know that they have studied hard on the best practices for maintaining, repairing, and installing chimney and fireplaces. In order to receive these certifications, industry professionals must also pass exams based on practices, standards, and codes that are used with fireplaces, chimneys, and other venting systems. Before taking these exams, technicians participate in hands-on training sessions and classes, or they can sign up for online lessons to prepare. To keep these certifications, professionals must continue their education to stay current with changes made to industry standards and practices.
Code of Ethics
When you hire a professional technician into your home, you want to be sure that this person is trustworthy. The best way is to look for certifications from that industry’s professional organizations, such as the CSIA and the NFI for the chimney industry. When a chimney professional takes the certification exam for the CSIA, he must also sign the organization’s Code of Ethics. Chimney technicians pledge to conduct themselves honestly and professionally. This means you can trust a CSIA-Certified chimney wweep to give you a fair and honest estimate of repair work necessary for your fireplace and chimney.
