Some surprises in life are happy ones. Think a birthday party, winning a raffle prize, or finding a nickel on the sidewalk.
Not when selling your Ozaukee County residence, though. In this setting, surprises are never good. Surprises cost time, money ... and maybe even a sale.
Putting a residence up for sale in Ozaukee County? Consider the chimney. It could hide an unwelcome surprise. Few homeowners have their chimneys inspected regularly. A chimney problem could be the bombshell that blows up a sale.
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 peruse every speck of your chimney's interior.
Mandate repairs for certain problems in a chimney. Quality Fireplace's 360-degree chimney scan, performed with specialized tools, will proactively find any such concerns: cracked flue tiles, for example, or gaps between tiles.
Ideally, none will be identified. You can move forward with confidence.
If the chimney scan finds concerns, you'll get a written estimate to fix them. The cost of the scan is deducted from the price. Probably not what you hoped for ... but isn't it better than a surprise discovery that blows up your Ozaukee County residence sale?
Quality Fireplace offers next-day service for real estate chimney scans. Just call 262-786-4411 to book an appointment or click to request a time. Off-season pricing is available in winter.
A chimney's interior has to be largely clean for a scan. If creosote accumulation or a debris blockage is found, a sweep ($299) necessitated beforehand.
Chimneys are different. We can't see inside them. Any problems are "out of sight, out of mind." The exceptions are when a problem erupts, or a professional discovers one early.
Don't let that professional be a potential buyer's home inspector. A proactive chimney scan for your Ozaukee County house can prevent a buyer being scared off. While some surprises are never welcome, the timing of a few are far worse than others.
