How much does it cost to repairs a chimney

Chimney repointing costs

Repointing is vital if the mortar in your brickwork is failing and letting water into the chimney. The process is very similar to any other brickwork repointing, but as with other chimney jobs, the fact it typically has to be done at height usually makes it more expensive.

A small chimney could be repointed for around €500, rising to €1,000 or more for very large chimney stacks, but the cost of scaffolding must then be added on to that.

Chimney flashing costs

The lead flashing around a chimney helps protect the overall roof structure from the effects of the elements, keeping rain out of the vulnerable part of the roof where the chimney meets the tiles.

 Good lead flashing will last for decades, but if it is badly fixed or too thin, it can come loose or crack and lead to larger problems.

The price for replacing all four sides of flashing (the apron, step flashing and back box) is around €800 to €1200 for the materials and the labour – however, this is the cost if no scaffolding is involved. 

If it is needed, as it commonly is with chimney jobs, particularly on two-storey homes, then the cost will be around €500 to €600 more expensive, meaning a typical cost to replace the lead flashing on a chimney will be around €1300 including scaffolding.

If you are simply repairing the flashing with a new section or sealing up cracks with welding, then the costs can be around €200 for the repairs themselves, but again, the price of scaffolding will increase this.

Chimney flue installation costs

The cost for replacing a chimney flue or lining depends on the size of the chimney, but depending on the grade of product used, can often cost around €800 to €1,200, including cleaning the chimney first. This job may also include scaffolding which can increase the overall price.

Chimney rebuild cost

If cracks are the only issue with the chimney, you can expect to pay around €200 at least. A complete rebuilding of your chimney from the crown to just below the roofline can cost €1,000 – €3,500 or more. A full chimney demolition all the way down to the fireplace can cost €10,000 or more.

Brickwork, Render & Chimney Stacks

Chimneys need to be well maintained at all times as they can create significant problems if left to deteriorate. Brickwork, stonework, mortar and lead flashing will decay over time and when mortar is left to crumble away it leaves the brick and stonework with no support and in some cases, can lead to chimneys collapsing.We are able to provide the following chimney repair and maintenance services:

  • Chimney repairs such as re-pointing and re-seating of chimney pots
  • Installation of lead soakers, flashings, back gutters and front aprons
  • Installation of chimney cowls and vents
  • Replacement of brickwork, mortar joints, render, flaunching and coping stones

Our extensive general building experience enables us to carry out all pointing work, from a simple patch repair to an entire house.

Crown Repair

There are 2 ways to repair a chimney crown. If suitable to the project we can add a resurfacing material and then re-coat the cemented area.

The other option is to replace the crown completely.

On our site visit we will be able to advise you on the best way to proceed.

Chimney Rebuilding Kildare

It may sound very expensive but rebuilding your chimney from scratch is sometimes the most affordable option, rather than completing a repair.

This is generally true when a chimney requires a number of repairs at the same time. We will advise you as to the best option but the choice is always yours.

Waterproofing Your Chimney

Most damage to a chimney is caused from inadequate waterproofing. This is often due to cheap sealants and materials being used, as the sealant degrades it allows water and moisture to get in and spread.

The obvious signs of water ingress is normally visible as white staining or dis-coloured masonry.

The best time to deal with this is before the problem occurs, so if you are in any doubt about the water proof nature of your chimney, get one of our experts to pay you a visit and check.

Even if your chimney is showing signs of water damage, our knowledgeable chimney specialists will be able to repair the damage and make sure that it never happens again.

The water repellent’s and sealants we use have a 10 year warranty, giving our clients complete peace of mind.

Chimney Flashing repair

If you are suffering from leaks, stains on your walls and ceiling, or a tar like substance where your chimney and roof meet, we suggest you get in touch with us soon.

We will check your chimney flashing to check if it is doing exactly as it should be.

Dangerous work materials like, aluminium, lead and copper are often used by masons, sometimes these materials can react badly and release toxins.

If you have even the tiniest suspicion that this may be the case get in touch with our chimney experts soon so they can inspect and advise you accordingly. 

Chimney Re-pointing

Re-pointing allows you to repair your chimney to its original structural integrity by removing and replacing damaged or missing sections of your chimney.

Even the use of cheap mortar can cause you problems after a few years.

Our skilled chimney workers will be able to re-point your chimney to make sure that it always looks perfect.
