Have you ever been faced with a significant home repair and thought…
“I wonder if I should look around more or get another opinion before I commit to this.”
Of course you have. It’s a common human reaction.
When something vital to our safety and comfort (like plumbing, heating, or air) stops working properly, most of us have only one thing on our minds: “Fix it. Fix it fast!”
So most of us don’t bother to get a second opinion – which can lead to stress, worry, and additional (unnecessary) expense.
How to Know When It’s Time For a Second Opinion
There are a few easy rules of thumb you can go by when deciding whether or not you should get a second opinion on plumbing, heating, or air work.
1: The proposed “fix” exceeds $800
2: You don’t have trust in/a history with the company doing the work
3: The price of the job or the proposed solution just feels wrong to you
When you find yourself having these doubts, you should get a second opinion. Most reputable service companies like Burton are more than happy to provide you with a quick but thorough second opinion. That way, you can either verify your suspicion that something isn’t right – or put it to rest and be able to make your decision with confidence.
How Much Will a Second Opinion Cost?
The answer depends upon the type of work you’re having done. The cost of a second opinion will depend upon several different factors including the time spent diagnosing the situation, the equipment used in the inspection.
So although it’s not a very specific answer, the truth is that the cost of a second opinion could vary widely from free, to the cost of just a dispatch fee, or more. But regardless of the minimal cost involved, getting a second opinion is a smart move that can save you thousands in time, grief, and money.
