Repairing a Brick Chimney

Your chimney could be falling apart due to a natural disaster or it could just be old. It’s time to think about the next step. All you’re thinking about is how much is it going to cost. Finding a Long Island chimney repair company that will repair it that has fair pricing can be a difficult task. Repairing a brick chimney is something a true professional should handle.

To find out how much it costs to repair your brick chimney, you will have to start the research for repairmen to compare prices. The price depends on a few things. Some repairmen will charge you for just coming out to your property. Some will offer a free consultation so they can take a look at it first, and then quote you a price. It also depends on how extensive the damage is.

On average, it could cost just under 200 dollars. That’s only if you have a couple of dings in it or a few missing bricks. This is on the low side too. Depending on the number of bricks that are damaged, it could cost up to 500 dollars just to replace a few of them. It could cost upwards of 1,000 dollars if you have more damage. That is also on the low side.

When the repairman arrives at your home, they will take a look at your chimney and assess the damage from there. Be sure to ask if they are fully licensed and insured. Ask them how long they have been in business as well. The chimney company should provide you with a full written estimate of the work they are going to perform. Search online and on their web design for reviews, testimonials and past work they have performed.
