Some surprises in life are desirable. Think a birthday party, winning a raffle prize, or finding a quarter on the sidewalk.
Not when selling your Racine County residence, though. In this situation, surprises are never invited. Surprises cost time, money ... and maybe even a sale.
Putting a house up for sale in Racine 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 blows up 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 inspect every speck of your chimney's interior.
Mandate repairs for specific structural issues in a chimney. Quality Fireplace's 360-degree chimney scan, done with specialized video equipment, will proactively find any such problems: cracked flue tiles, for example, or gaps between tiles.
Ideally, none will be identified. You can move ahead 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 hoped for ... but isn't it better than a surprise discovery that torpedoes your Racine County house sale?
Quality Fireplace provides next-day service for real estate chimney inspections. Just call 262-786-4411 to schedule an appointment or click to request a time. Off-season pricing is offered during 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) might be needed before the scan.
Chimneys are curious. We can't see inside them. Any issues 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 Racine County home can prevent a buyer being scared off. While many surprises are never wanted, the timing of some are far worse than others.
