Some surprises in life are happy ones. Think a birthday party, winning a raffle prize, or finding a dollar on the street.
Not when selling your Ozaukee County home, though. In this scenario, surprises are never invited. Surprises cost time, money ... and maybe even a sale.
Putting a house up for sale in Ozaukee County? Don't forget the chimney. It could contain an unwelcome surprise. Few homeowners have their chimneys inspected consistently. 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 house sale, with a chimney scan. For just between $170-195, Quality Fireplace will peruse every centimeter of your chimney's interior.
Building codes require repairs for specific problems in a chimney. Quality Fireplace's 360-degree chimney scan, done with specialized video equipment, will proactively identify 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 problems, you'll get a written estimate to fix them. The cost of the scan is deducted from the price. Probably not what you wanted ... but isn't it better than a surprise discovery that blows up your Ozaukee County house sale?
Quality Fireplace offers next-day service for real estate chimney scans. Just call 262-786-4411 to schedule an appointment or click to request a time. Off-season pricing is available during 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) required beforehand.
Chimneys are curious. 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 identifies one early.
Don't let that professional be a potential buyer's home inspector. A proactive chimney scan for your Ozaukee County residence can prevent a buyer being scared away. While many surprises are never hoped for, the timing of some are definitely worse than others.
