How a Second Opinion on Chimney Repairs can Benefit You
If you live in the greater Atlanta area, Chimney Solutions of Alpharetta can provide you with a qualified second opinion on any level or scope of chimney damage, whether your repair project is going through your homeowner’s insurance or you’re self paying. This is a free service with no obligation and may save you money, hassle and disruption down the line, and remember, it’s always smart to get at least two appraisals for all chimney repair work.
The Value of a Second Opinion
When your chimney is suffering damage and you get a single estimate, all you have to go by is that estimate. Most chimney repair companies are reasonable, fair and honest – but not all are. When you get a second opinion from an experienced chimney professional, you may learn some very important things:
The original estimate left out critical tasks: Inexperienced chimney workers may not know everything that needs to be included in your repair project.
The original estimate included unnecessary tasks: Some chimney companies may “pad the estimate” by including work that’s really not necessary to solve your problem.
The price is way too high: Overcharging is common in a lot of industries. A second opinion will give you a more realistic view of what a project should cost.
The price is way too low: Under-charging often means under-performing. Our certified chimney experts will be able to tell right away if an estimate you received is suspect by its low dollar amount.

Our professional chimney sweeps remove dangerous creosote to dramatically lessen the occurrence of chimney fires and internal flue damage.
2. Get repairs done when needed
It’s a lot less expensive and basic to have minor chimney damage repaired than to wait until the problem is widespread and complicated.
