Hi I just bought a house in April and had inspection done on the chimney. The inspector was highly reccomended and said the chimney was fine, but said the fireplace needed a cleaning and to call him when we owned the house. Anyway I called him recently but he was busy so we had another cleaner come out and they cleaned the fireplace. They said the chimney has damage and we need a minimum of $1200 of work and that it could be as high as $3500. This completely sucks because we would have negotiated at closing if we knew. Any advice on the situation? Are we being duped?
