The Value Of A Second Opinion For Chimney Repairs

Scheduling chimney repairs can be a daunting task. Between the unexpected cost and chimney downtime, you shouldn’t have to worry about getting a fair and reasonable quote. Regardless of if you’re paying out of pocket or homeowner’s insurance is taking care of the cost, getting a second appraisal and quote is always a good choice.professional chimney services in Lawrenceville NJ

Why take the time?

Your chimney is a big part of your home. We understand the frustration and hassle of waiting for appointments. However, it’s best to get a second quote for a few reasons. 

  • It’s possible the chimney contractor was inexperienced and left out critical tasks required to do the job correctly
  • On the other hand, you may have been upsold for tasks you might not actually need.
  • The price could be off – this can be too high or too low. While finding the cheapest quote may be appealing, it could be due to inexperience or missing steps. You certainly don’t want to have to pay twice if the first contractor does something wrong.

Any of these reasons can warrant a second look. Worst case, you go with the first quote, but you’ll have added peace of mind in your decision.
