Many homes in the area come with a working fireplace. Maintaining the fireplace may range in price based on the size, how often it is used, and the types of resources it burns. Here are the general costs that a chimney may impose on your budget, and ways to lower repair and maintenance expenses.
Typically, the severity of the damage will determine the price based on where it is located. Small cracks create smaller costs ranging around $100. However, if this damage is not prevented then water may enter into the cracks, loosening mortar and causing greater problems. The repairs may raise costs up to $700 when dealing with water problems and tens of thousands of dollars for a full chimney replacement.
