Services and Prices Explanations:

A few considerations about price:  Most customer find our price to be quite reasonable, especially if compared with other like-quality professionals.  But how important is chimney maintenance?  Let’s put things into context:

stainless steel chimney cap on chimney northeast chimney sweepsStainless steel chimney caps – $150 – 450:  Price includes installation, for single to multiple-flue chimneys.  Chimney caps offer a permanent, non-rusting, maintenance-friendly protection, the cost of which seems small compared to that of removing racoons or squirrels from your chimney (or living room).

 

Chimney cleaning – $245 for a single-flue cleaning.  Well worth the price of avoiding a chimney fire in a fireplace flue, or removing a pile-up of soot and debris restricting the draft in a furnace flue.

 

 

 

chimney saver waterproofing chimney caps northeast chimney sweepsWaterproofing – $85 – 400, depending on surface area.  This is a water-repellent application from Saver Systems that has its primary benefit preservation of brick surfaces, the avoidance of damage caused by water absorption, deterioration, and freeze / thaw damage.  Always much less expensive than fixing masonry structures that were never protected.

 

 

Chimney liners – $1600-2600 including installation:  A chimney liner system is a complete single-flue package that includes all supports and connector / adapter components, as well as connection to the appliance; i.e. oil burner.  Chimney lining is certainly our most expensive service.  While most customer quickly understand the importance of having a strong and healthy path through which their heating system can “exhale”, a few wonder if there is another way to return their flue to health.  The truth is there IS another choice.  Your chimney has given 40, 50 or more years of service.  If you would like to return it to its original condition, it can be entirely torn down and rebuilt, brick by brick, clay liner by clay liner.  As you have probably guessed, this alternative is impractical, messy, time consuming, and as much as 15 times more expensive.  It is an alternative chosen by no one.  On the other hand, a new stainless steel liner system is completely installed in one day with no mess and little disruption to the customer’s daytime routine.  Once installed, it provides a permanent correction to a worn-out flue, truly  making your chimney new on its important side, the inside!
