I don't have a brick chimney, my house has siding, so the chimney is a standard prefab that they install in nonbrick houses in our area. This means you need a chimney chase cover and a chimney cap when they wear out. My previous one had rusted and there were holes, letting in some moisture. I was shocked to hear the price for this service and materials. I went online to see that you can send your actual measurements to a firm in Michigan and they will make a chimney chase cover and cap for DIYers. At any rate, they have a cost calculator on their website. The cost would be over $400, but certainly less than $500, for the stainless steel parts. That company charges $300 for local installation. So, my charge was 50% more than what I would have paid if I had lived in Michigan! I know we are a high cost of living area, but that seems much too high. And my $1200 price was negotiated down. On the first visit the workmen spent about 20 minutes inspecting and measuring. On the second visit, they spent under an hour installing.
On the positive side, the crews and office staff were very nice and professional and efficient. I am happy workers are happy and are paid a fair wage, but the profit on this job seems too much even if it is the going rate in the DC area.
Also note that if you are comparison shopping, this is the same company as chimney.com

They did great. They were very professional. They did great work, and everything was perfect. Their communication of what they were doing stood out for me. The price was fair.

They were fine. They arrived on time, cleaned up, and didn’t leave a mess. It was fine. They held true to the big deal price. They were respectful and courteous.

was very polite, professional and neat. He was careful to put down a clean tarp before beginning work inside our living room. He removed the old damper and installed a new top sealing steel damper which closes tight. He instructed me on how to open and effectively close the damper to keep it airtight when not in use.

I was told it would be 2-3 weeks to make the chasepan. No problem. 3 weeks later they came out and the custom made chasepan was the wrong size. I was told they would contact me when a new one was completed. 1 1/2 month later, I hadn't heard from them and called them. They stated they tried to call but I never received a call and they had the correct number so I can only assume they never tried to call. So they told me they needed to come back out and measure again so setup an appointment for them to come out. They rescheduled that appointment a few times but did make it out to measure (not the first time they rescheduled). So we setup an appointment for Sept. 19 to have the work done. They day of the 19th, I got a call they were running late (appt. was at 3pm) and would call me with the new estimated time. I never heard from them and nobody showed up. So I am done with this company.

Called for sweep pricing and scheduled appointment.

arrived as scheduled. Advised him of the concerns I had with recent performance of fireplace and he took note indicating he would investigate. He explained what he would be doing and went to work quickly. After he completed the sweep and inspection he told me what he found in detail and showed me what he could inside the fireplace to support his theories. He recommended we contact a mason for the additional work he found necessary and offered a referral which I appreciated. I found his pricing to be very competitive based on verbal quotes received.

was very professional and efficient. He explained what he was going to do and why. He answered all my questions without getting frustrated, which is different from other people I have worked with. He cleaned up after himself and the swamp cooler and area around it looked better than it ever has! He was able to get to my house to do an estimate the same day the called and had the work done the next day.
