Your home's chimney vents unpleasant and dangerous fumes away from your home. When chimneys develop issues, prompt chimney repair can keep your family warm, safe, and healthy. 

What common issues require chimney repair?

Problems most homeowners experience with their chimneys are associated with age and use. An older or often-used chimney will need chimney repair more often than a newer, or seldom-used, chimney. You may have one or more of these typical problems:

  • Cracks in the exterior brick or masonry
  • Cracks in the chimney liner or flue
  • Water infiltration
  • Clogged chimney (often due to nests)
  • Creosote buildup
  • Loose chimney flashing
  • Separation between chimney cricket and chimney (a cricket is a small roof transition piece)
  • Poor venting

Though most of a chimney is immobile, it can still have failing parts. From the exterior, you may notice cracks in the brick or masonry. From inside, you may spot water stains, dripping water, or cracks in the chimney liner. Other failing parts include:

  • Faulty damper 
  • Broken crown (the top masonry area)
  • Spark arrestor

How much will chimney repair near me cost?

The national average for chimney repair is $455, but that perhaps oversimplifies the extent of possible repair. Expect to pay:

  • $100 to $300 for a chimney cleaning
  • $150 to $300 for crown repair
  • $175 to $3,000 for crack repair
  • $150 to $350 for solving water leaks

Begin with local chimney sweeps, who often not only clean chimneys but repair them, as well.
