Chimspector Venting Specialists is a locally owned and operated full-service chimney company serving the greater Columbia area. Owned and operated by Drew and Jess Stein, our goal is to provide the greater Columbia metropolitan area with unparalleled customer service while educating our community about their chimneys, furnaces, and dryer vents.
After living in Charlotte, Drew and Jess returned to Columbia with their young daughter to be closer to family and friends. While we may be a relatively new company to the area, we have over 15 years of venting and hearth experience. Drew spent 11 years working under one of Columbia’s premier sweeps and four years as a sales rep with one of the nation’s leading venting manufacturers. Jess earned her bachelor’s degree from The University of South Carolina and was accounts payable manager with Northstar Demolition and Remediation prior to taking on the role of office manager. She runs the scheduling and billing departments here at Chimspector Venting Specialists and is dedicated to exceeding your expectations in the customer service department.
