Need a Second Opinion on Chimney Damage for Insurance or Self-Pay?
There is great value in receiving a second (or third) qualified opinion for chimney repair services when your chimney has suffered damage. Normally, second estimates are required by homeowner’s insurance carriers, but they should be sought any time your chimney needs work to bring it back to safety and functionality.
Dubuque Fireplace & Patio of Dubuque, Iowa, provides homeowners in the greater Dubuque region with qualified second opinions and estimates for any type of chimney repair work.
You Can Learn a Lot from a Second Opinion
Just as we always like to get another viewpoint when dealing with medical procedures, we can benefit greatly from another viewpoint on damaged chimney repair. Going with a single estimate can be risky because you have no perspective, nothing to compare it to.
Is the price way too high? Is the projected amount of work excessive? Or (and this could be worse): have critical tasks been overlooked?
Our experienced chimney services technicians are happy to provide you with a second opinion on chimney work. We’ll take a look at your original estimate, and if we feel there are issues with how it’s put together, we’ll bring this to your attention. We offer this service with absolutely no obligation from you to hire us.
A Qualified Chimney Company
Not everyone who performs chimney repairs performs qualified chimney repairs. We’re not here to knock other chimney companies, but the fact is, not all of them have the skills, training and hands-on experience necessary to do a safe and thorough job in repairing your damaged chimney.
When seeking compensation from your homeowner’s insurance provider, you’ll need to get evaluations from several chimney companies. Your insurance company rep will want you to speak only with experienced professionals, but it’s not his or her job to make sure you do. That’s your job.
Do some research on any chimney companies you’re thinking of working with. Learn about their reputation, time in business, whether or not they’re licensed and insured in your state and other particulars that separate the pros from the amateurs. Of particular importance is, do they know how to do the work you need?
