I've had the unfortunate experience of having a house fire. It's a toss up between the fire, smoke, water and fireman that did the most damage.

I fully intend to clean my chimney, but mid winter cleanings will be difficult with the slick metal roof. I just want to plan for worst case scenario. I will just sleep better at night with a seriously overbuilt chimney.
