Many real estate agents understand the importance of home inspections for their clients. These represent a prime opportunity for finding issues with the home before your buyer is living in it and responsible for paying for repairs on their own. Unfortunately, some still do not understand the importance of a separate chimney inspection.
Just like you would not call an electrician to deal with a plumbing issue, even though both of the issues take place behind the walls of a house, you should not call a roofer to deal with chimney issues, even though both of them are on the outside of the house. Why is calling a chimney company so important for chimney issues with your house listing?
Chimney Training Is Specialized
Certified chimney sweeps are required to go through intensive training in order to ensure that they are able to identify problems, clean chimneys, and make repairs. Roofers are trained to work on roofs. They simply do not have the same level of experience and expertise, which can lead to the wrong repair being made or problems being overlooked. Chimney companies can handle a comprehensive range of repairs, including repairing or replacing chimney caps, waterproofing, rebuilding, replacing damaged masonry, and more.
Chimney Repairs Require Special Tools
Chimney sweeps use specialized tools that are designed specifically for the job. Because chimneys are unique structures that have unique concerns, you need to make sure that the person you are hiring for the job is prepared to make repairs. Professional chimney companies, like Clean Sweep, have the right equipment for your job and know how to use it!
Chimney Companies Have the Right Insurance
When you are relying on a roofing company or other contractor to make chimney repairs on a client’s property, there is a good chance that they do not have the right insurance to tackle the job. Certified chimney sweeps have insurance that protects them, you, and your home buyers and sellers. They also have the proper licensing for the job!
