Chimney Damage, Homeowner’s Insurance & Second Opinions
If your chimney is damaged and it’s going to be covered by your homeowner’s insurance policy, you’ll probably be required to get several estimates for the work. Those estimates serve as second (or third) opinions and are especially critical when the chimney repair project appears to be extensive.
Chimney Specialists of Highland, WI, regularly provides no-cost, no-obligation estimates and second opinions to homeowners, whether or not their chimney damage is covered by insurance. It’s important to receive this input, and here’s why.
Benefits of Second Opinions
No two chimney companies think exactly the same way. And not all chimney repair technicians have the years of experience to accurately estimate the scope of a damaged chimney and know exactly what tasks will be needed to solve the problem.
Receiving a single quote/estimate for chimney repair gives you nothing to go on. You have a dollar amount, but nothing to compare it to. We are always available to evaluate issues with your chimney and give you an honest appraisal based on our years of hands-on chimney repair and maintenance experience.
As noted, homeowner’s insurance carriers will want you to secure several estimates for work they’ll be paying for. But second opinions and additional estimates should be routine any time your chimney is in need of repair.

Your Chimney’s Health Is too Important to Risk
It’s not our desire to be critical of other chimney service providers, but you can never be too cautious when arranging for repairs such as those outlined above. You also want to watch your expenses, and it’s a known fact that chimney companies often give very different estimates for the work they propose to do.
When seeking estimates for and evaluation of work needed for your chimney, you should only consider reputable chimney companies that are licensed and insured. Never hire a “handyman” or general remodeling company to do intricate chimney work.
You’ll save yourself money and take a big step toward safety for your chimney, home and family if you only consult with experienced technicians for both insurance estimates and estimates for work you’ll be paying for.
