What do you need to know about repairing or rebuilding a chimney?
The cost for repairing or rebuilding a chimney depends entirely on the job at hand. Are you simply restoring or maintaining a chimney, or has it undergone more serious damage? You may have noticed the problem yourself, or it could have been highlighted in a building survey. Regardless it is important to have the problem professionally assessed before seeking a quote.
When repairing or rebuilding a chimney there are a few complications that can arise early on. Many chimney stacks are set on walls shared by two parties, in which case you will need your neighbour’s approval to have work done. A tradesman can advise you here, but you should only seek a legal professional if you and your neighbour are unable to work things out. If it is a shared structure you may be able to negotiate a split cost. You will need to take down any tv aerials on or around the chimney, and keep in mind that scaffolding will more than likely be required for your tradesmen to work safely.
Before making a final decision ensure that your chosen tradesman is adequately experienced and qualified for the job. They should also have coverage for accidental damage and liabilities. The work may well result in tiles being knocked loose, so be sure that your choice has a guarantee in place for any additional work.
