Picture this: you do your due diligence as a responsible homeowner and decide it’s time for a chimney inspection. You hit up Angie’s List* or Home Adviser* for a local chimney sweep who, after a few minutes of poking around your chimney, provides you with a repair estimate that seems a little too high. So, you call another company to get a second opinion, but now the second contractor provides you with an entirely different scenario. With mounting frustration, you then call a third company to get to the bottom of this confusing scenario (hopefully).

Now you have three inspection reports that appear to contradict each other and arrive at different conclusions. So, how do you decide the best course of action?

As for rendering an outdated stereotype powerless, there’s really only one sure path to doing that, and that is to do good work you can be proud of, acknowledge that the stereotype still exists and then proactively use it yourself in a humorous way to (preemptively) illustrate the distance between perception (chimney sweeps are uneducated and embarrassed by their professions) and reality (CSIA Certified Chimney Sweeps® are required to maintain a high level of education and are incredibly proud of their work); because, once you claim it as your own, it can’t be used against you.
