Inspection & status

In order not to be surprised by the construction of the chimney, an inspection should be made continuously. Then you can manage from a more thorough renovation. You can earn a lot of maintenance money on that.

According to the PBL (Planning and Building Act), the property owner is responsible for the maintenance of the chimney (building). The inspections are recurring, with intervals of 1-2 years according to Swedish Standard SS-EN 13084-1: 2007. Inspections (status checks) increase from year to year. The inspection takes place with our own experienced inspectors.
