We Can Help With Insurance Claims & Repairs
Has your chimney suffered a fire or a lightning strike? Dealing with your insurance company and trying to get chimney repairs covered can be a pain, but we’re here to help make it as easy and stress-free as possible. We can document everything using our ChimScan video scanning equipment and will work with you and your insurance company every step of the way. We’ll inspect your system, photograph the damage, and provide you with a written report of our findings and suggested repairs. With a video inspection, you’ll have visual proof of the condition of your chimney system, which can be sent to the insurance company when you file your claim.
Unfortunately, if your chimney damage is a result of neglect or poor maintenance, your insurance company is unlikely to cover the cost of repairs. The process of determining the cause of the chimney damage can be long and drawn out, but keeping up with annual inspections is a great way to protect yourself from these types of situations.
If you’re scheduling annual inspections with a Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA)-certified chimney sweep, you’ll have visual and written documentation of your chimney’s condition each and every year. As long as you keep up with cleanings and any suggested repairs based on these inspections, the insurance company won’t have a leg to stand on should they claim the damage was a result of negligence. Yet another reason to make annual chimney inspections a priority in your home!
