Some surprises in life are desirable. Think a birthday party, winning a raffle prize, or finding a penny on the street.
Not when selling your Washington County residence, though. In this setting, surprises are never invited. Surprises cost time, money ... and maybe even a sale.
Putting a home on the market in Washington County? Think about 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 residence sale, with a chimney scan. For just between $170-195, Quality Fireplace will peruse every inch of your chimney's interior.
Building codes require repairs for certain problems in a chimney. Quality Fireplace's 360-degree chimney scan, done with specialized tools, will proactively find any such concerns: cracked flue tiles, for example, or gaps between tiles.
Ideally, none will be spotted. 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 anticipated ... but isn't it better than a surprise discovery that sabotages your Washington County house sale?
Quality Fireplace provides next-day service for real estate chimney inspections. Just call 262-786-4411 to request 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 accumulation or a debris blockage is identified, a sweep ($299) might be needed before the scan.
Chimneys are different. 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 finds one early.
Don't let that professional be a potential buyer's home inspector. A proactive chimney scan for your Washington County place can prevent a buyer being scared away. While some surprises are never wanted, the timing of some are definitely worse than others.
