Do you require a basic visual inspection such as for insurance or pre-purchase of a home equipped with a wood-burning appliance or fireplace? A basic visual inspection is a general overview of the readily accessible parts to determine if the system meets current regulations. If this description fits your needs, any WETT-certified member is trained to perform a basic visual inspection.
If you need a more intensive inspection or an evaluation to determine system integrity, contact a WETT-certified technician or sweep listed under installations or chimney sweeping.
If your wood-burning system is not functioning properly, is damaged or causing concerns such as smoke spillage, rapid creosote accumulation, etc., you should contact a WETT-certified technician or sweep listed under installations or chimney sweeping.
Note: Not all technicians and sweeps offer diagnostic services. Some members may have multiple listings; this reflects their different services.

WETT-certified professionals must abide by a code of ethics requiring professionalism in all aspects of their work. The installation and maintenance of wood-burning appliances is not regulated in Canada. As a non-profit training and educational association, WETT does not oversee, nor is it responsible for, the workmanship of its members. As such, WETT does not act as a regulator. WETT does maintain internal processes to address breaches of our code of ethics, however WETT cannot become involved in resolving consumer disputes.WETT trains and certifies individuals, not companies. Companies can use the WETT logo if someone at their company is WETT certified, but only those who have been issued certification by WETT can claim to be WETT-certified. WETT-certified professionals carry photo ID cards. Ask to see an ID card and ensure that it carries a valid sticker showing the current year.
