  1. I just had my chimney cleaned…don;t use it much but was going to get gas insert…the company found multiple cracks ,crown water damage & spaces on outside of brick(30 y/o masonry fireplace).
    They gave me 2 estimates, one with manual sealing, the other with steel liner & all the other things that need to be done. Both jobs are warranted, steel for lifetime. The price difference is about $1500. 3,500-5,000.
    We loose power every so often like now in a storm & I want to have backup.
    There aren’t a lot of companies that fix chimeny’s here as it turns out, lots clean but major repair not so many. The first 2nd opinion i can get is 2 weeks out.
    Please advise which repair method is most safe & cost effective & whether it is wise to wait for second opinion.

    The good news is that today with the internet you can find other chimney repair contractors and validate their performance by reading their customer reviews online.
    Listen for the voice of the customer that is writing the review, is it Fluffy, Hostile or written from a solid viewpoint.
    Both suggested repair options are valid, and we provide both to our customers for differing situations. Please read the warranty condition of both recomendations! I don’t call this “The Fine” print I refer to it as the conditions of the warranty. I tell folks all of the time, you cannot just throw the warranty information it in the file drawer and hope that you will never need it. Just like in with most any other warranties, the product replacement, as well as the labor for a claim resolution may come from different parties (ie. the product manufacture or the original installer), as well as having differing lengths of time that the warranty coverers. To the best of my understanding a number of states define Lifetime warranty as only 7 years.
    Follow the link below. When ever possible I would suggest getting 2 or 3 opinions on recommended repairs
