Reasons for a chimney renovation and costs

In different cases, a chimney renovation cannot be avoided. This applies, for example, when signs of aging such as cracks and sooting appear.

Refurbishment is often unavoidable even when the heating system is changed. For example, modern heating systems with condensing technology place special demands on the flue gas system.

Structural defects

Over the years, deficiencies in the chimney can lead to a significant loss of efficiency or further problems. The smoke is no longer escaping properly, or exhaust gases are stuck in the masonry. This danger exists in the case of cracks, leaky joints, and other unevenness. 

Soiled chimney

Many homeowners are faced with a soiled chimney: condensed water, sulfur, and tar permeate the masonry.

Above a certain level, unsightly stains form on the outer walls, i.e. visible to the residents. The reasons can be varied. For example, it could be due to the incorrect use of a wood stove.

Wood that is too moist can soot the stove. This problem also arises if there is an unheated room on the upper floors directly by the fireplace. At this altitude, the exhaust gases cool down quickly and can condense. 

The cost of a chimney renovation depends on many factors.

The renovation of the chimney of an average single-family house costs between 500 and 1,500 dollars.

This includes chimney cleaning costs.

The type and scope of a renovation vary greatly, and the prices for a chimney renovation vary accordingly.

To get the approximate chimney cap installation cost, the material costs per Sq ft. Are calculated comparatively, especially if you need an inner chimney cladding.

All you have to do is calculate the cost of materials based on the length and diameter of the fireplace. The labor costs are determined by numerous facets, including:

  • Accessibility of the roof and the chimney
  • The necessity of additional services such as chiseling
  • Individual hourly wage of the craftsman

 

It is best to get a chimney repair cost estimate before you begin a specific chimney renovation. The team at Allied Construction & Roofing is able to help you with every step in this process. 

Signs that indicate defects:

  • Odors in the house that cannot be explained and a frequent burning smell indicate damage to the chimney.
  • Look out for yellowish or brown spots that indicate that the chimney is sooty.
  • Whenever a new heater or stove is used, always renovate the chimney as well.
