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 Washington County residence, though. In this situation, surprises are never invited. Surprises cost time, money ... and maybe even a sale.
Putting a residence on the market in Washington County? Consider the chimney. It could harbor an unwelcome surprise. Few homeowners have their chimneys inspected consistently. A chimney problem could be the bombshell that sinks a deal.
Don't take a chance. 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 centimeter of your chimney's interior.
Necessitate repairs for certain structural issues in a chimney. Quality Fireplace's 360-degree chimney scan, performed with specialized gear, will proactively discover 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 issues, 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 book an appointment or click to request a time. Off-season pricing is offered in winter.
A chimney's interior has to be relatively clean for a scan. If creosote accumulation or a debris blockage is found, a sweep ($299) necessitated before the scan.
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 Washington County place can prevent a buyer being scared away. While some surprises are never welcome, the timing of some are definitely worse than others.
