How Much Does Chimney Repair Cost?
No one likes the answer to this chimney repair question because it’s always the same – it depends. Chimney repairs can be costly at times; however, they’ll always be necessary for safe operation if major or significant damage has occurred over time. That said, the final cost really does depend on the complexity and extent of the damage.
Know that, before you say yes, it’s important to find out if the needed repairs are partially or fully covered by your home insurance policy. If so, you’ll be able to factor that into your decision.
All that said, because these repairs can range from more simple (like a cap replacement) to total system rebuilds, it’s hard to give you an estimate that will hold true. Many chimney repairs can range in price from several hundred dollars to thousands depending on the scope of work.
