1 – How do I get a WETT inspection or WETT certificate?
Answer: Appliances cannot be WETT certified.
2 – What is a SITE Basic Inspection? / What are the levels of Inspection?
Answer: SITE outlines three levels of inspection.
Level-2 Inspection – “Accessible”
Level-3 Inspection – “Concealed Accessibility”
3 – Which Inspection level do I need?
Answer: SITE is a set of standardized guidelines and procedures that are recommended by WETT for the inspection and/or evaluation of wood-burning systems.
4 – What is the Cost of an Inspection?
Answer: Inspections will vary, typically based upon work required and how far the inspector has to travel.
A Level 3, which may take a full day or more to perform will cost more than a Level 1 inspection. Some Level 1 inspections are completed in 10 or 15 minutes and during a Home Inspection are thrown in for free! A Level 2 inspection, if done with the Home Inspection will take an additional 45 minutes to 1 hours in most cases to perform, and if done by itself will take 1.5 to 2 hours. If performed with a Home Inspection – either a Level 1 or 2 will be less costly.
5 – What kind of report will I get?
Answer: With a Level 1 report, you will typically get the WETT approved inspection templates, one for the wood burning appliance/flue pipe and one for the chimney.
This should be the VERY minimum provided. These should have the WETT Inspectors number on them, and be signed and dated. With a Level 2, there will be very likely the same WETT approved forms, as well as a written report.
