Inspection Levels

Level one is performed without the aid of any specialized tools and is recommended when things are working as always, without change.

Level two when there’s a change, like a new liner, a new homeowner, a new appliance, new fuel type, a strong storm or chimney fire, or a new problem or performance issue. This level of the inspection may require some basic tools, and will also include a video scan of the chimney interior. Level two inspection and its ability to provide close-up images of damage, these inspections are oftentimes referred to as real estate, home, or insurance inspections.

Level three is a level two inspection suggests a deeper, hidden problem impossible to get to the bottom of. A level three can involve the removal of firebox panels, chimney crowns, walls, and other components of the chimney system and home, which is why it’s considered a last resort.

Established as a port on the Altamaha River by Scottish Highlanders in 1736, Darien has a long martial tradition. By 1863, Darien was considered one of the great ports on the eastern seaboard. Aside from shipping staples like cotton and lumber, the port was a haven for blockade runners. Because of its economic importance and notoriety as a blockade-running sanctuary, Darien became a target of Union forces invading the Georgia coast during the Civil War. With the commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War, now is the perfect time to explore Darien’s Civil War history.

Columbus Square
The Columbus Square historical marker reads: “Near this point the Darien and Western Railroad reached its terminus in 1895 after six years of construction. Trains arrived daily at Columbus Square then turned around for a return trip to Tattnall County. The D&W later became the Georgia Coast & Piedmont and a depot was built in 1914 at the Darien waterfront, when the rail line was extended to Brunswick. Until then, Columbus Square was the transportation hub of Darien.” Another Historical Marker reads: “In 1889, the Darien Shortline Railroad was organized to transport yellow pine timber to the Darien sawmills from Georgia’s interior. Originating in Tattnall County and continuing through Liberty County, the Darien & Western line was completed in 1895 to its terminus near this site where a passenger depot was built, now marked by the gazebo. In 1906, the line was bought by the Georgia Coast & Piedmont Railroad, which extended the line 18 miles south to Brunswick in 1914. The train depot was then moved from Columbus Square to the riverfront near the present U.S. Highway 17 bridge. The depot burned in 1971.”
