Some surprises in life are desirable. Think a birthday party, winning a raffle prize, or finding a quarter on the street.
Not when selling your Milwaukee County home, though. In this setting, surprises are never good. Surprises cost time, money ... and maybe even a sale.
Putting a place on the market in Milwaukee County? Don't forget the chimney. It could hide an unwelcome surprise. Few homeowners have their chimneys inspected regularly. A chimney problem could be the bombshell that sinks a deal.
Don't risk it. Instead, invest in your peace of mind, and a smooth home sale, with a chimney scan. For just between $170-195, Quality Fireplace will review every inch of your chimney's interior.
Necessitate repairs for certain structural issues in a chimney. Quality Fireplace's 360-degree chimney scan, performed with specialized tools, will proactively find any such issues: cracked flue tiles, for example, or gaps between tiles.
Ideally, none will be discovered. You can move forward with confidence.
If the chimney scan finds issues, you'll get a written estimate to resolve them. The cost of the scan is taken off the price. Probably not what you wanted ... but isn't it better than a surprise discovery that blows up your Milwaukee County home sale?
Quality Fireplace offers next-day service for real estate chimney inspections. Just call 262-786-4411 to book an appointment or click to request a time. Off-season pricing is offered in winter.
A chimney's interior has to be largely clean for a scan. If creosote buildup or a debris blockage is identified, a sweep ($299) might be needed first.
Chimneys are different. We can't see inside them. Any concerns are "out of sight, out of mind." The exceptions are when a problem erupts, or a professional identifies one early.
Don't let that professional be a potential buyer's home inspector. A proactive chimney scan for your Milwaukee County place can prevent a buyer being scared off. While some surprises are never wanted, the timing of some are far worse than others.
