Why Invest in Chimney Repairs Right Away?
If you’ve noticed any types of wear and tear on your chimney or any inefficiency when operating your fireplace, you likely need repairs. And when it comes to chimney care, relying on a certified sweep to complete these services as soon as possible is the only way to go.
There are several reasons why it is a good idea to invest in chimney repairs right away, rather than put them on the back burner.
- Safety: Damaged chimneys are much more prone to experience things like fire hazards, gas leaks, and poor indoor air quality – all of which puts those in your household at risk.
- Efficiency: It’s a simple truth – you simply won’t get the efficiency you’re hoping for from a damaged or broken down chimney. If you want heat, ambiance, and ultimate comfort, get repairs booked soon.
- Cost: Ignoring chimney damage will more often than not lead to more extensive and costly repairs down the line. It’s almost always more cost-effective to repair the chimney right away, rather than holding off.
- Home Damage: Did you know that a damaged chimney can lead to leaks and water damage in other parts of your home as well? Think staining on your walls, rotted woodwork, mold growth, and more… not good.
Long story short, a chimney that’s weakened and damaged will continue breaking down until appropriate repair services are applied. Don’t let easy and affordable fixes turn into costly and time-consuming repairs or rebuilds. If you’ve recently spotted worn-out bricks and mortar, water-related damages, broken down components, or any other areas of concern, call us in.
And remember – the best way to avoid damages from occurring at all is getting your annual inspections booked with us every year. That way, we can spot damages well before they get worse and get sweepings booked as needed, too. If you’re in the Tucson area, we’re here to help.
How Much Will Chimney Repairs Cost Me?
We’d love to give you a straightforward answer here, but pricing isn’t always so cut and dried when it comes to chimney repairs – and any so-called sweep that tells you differently is likely trying to scam you or simply isn’t as qualified as they claim.
Chimney repair costs vary depending on a wide range of things, like the current state of your chimney, the size and style of fireplace/chimney, and what type of damage it is experiencing. If you need a bit of tuckpointing completed, for instance, this is obviously going to be a lot cheaper than a full-on rebuild.
So, here’s what we suggest – give us a call. From there, we can discuss your situation and needs, then figure out the best plan for moving forward. And once things are more clear, we can give you an estimate, so you can start budgeting.
Does insurance cover chimney repairs?
And while we’re on the subject of cost, here’s another common question – does homeowners’ insurance help with these types of projects? Again, it depends.
If your damage was caused by a natural disaster or chimney fire, most policies will cover all or at least part of the repair costs. That said, if the damage was caused by neglect on the part of the homeowner, you may not be so lucky.
Either way, it’s always worth looking into and speaking with your insurance agent about your options.
