ABOUT CHIMSPECTOR

Chimspector Venting Specialists is a locally owned and operated full-service chimney company serving the greater Columbia area.

Our Story

Owned and operated by Drew Stein, our goal is to provide unparalleled customer service while educating our community about their chimneys, furnaces, and dryer vents from The Midlands to the Coast of South Carolina.

After living in Charlotte, Drew and his wife Jess returned to Columbia with their young daughter to be closer to family and friends. Although Chimspector is 7 years old, Drew has 21 years of experience in the hearth and venting industry. 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.
