When it comes to your chimney there are a few things that are critical to keep in mind. Not only is it incredibly important that you make sure that your seals and construction are always intact, when you are considering repairs or replacements the professionals at Walker Contracting would like you to know that there are other things that you should watch out for as well.
To begin with, do not just openly trust a chimney cleaner who shows up at your door when you did not specifically invite them. When it comes to home improvement there are many scams out there and chimney cleaning is one of the most common.
Another way this scam try and trick you is to come from a telemarketer who offers to have someone come and clean your Toronto chimney for an extremely low price. These are typically ways that repair scam artists use to just try and get in the door so they can con you into spending more money and damage that they say is effecting your home.
To make the scam appear to be more convincing some scammers will even go as far as to include a photograph to show you why you need to spend that extra money. They may even bring you debris from the alleged “broken” chimney. Walker Contracting advises that if this occurs and you are not comfortable or happy with the overall experience then remember that the house belongs to you. Feel free to request that the person is able to actually show you where the damage actually is, or that you get a second opinion from a second contractor like Walker Contracting.
