outside brick chimney repair
We are losing chunks of brick from the top 6 feet of our 2 story outside chimney. We were told we need to tear it all down and rebuilt ($8000). That seems extreme. Can we stucco over it all and get a good seal?

That price doesnt sound that bad, but without pics we are guessing.
