Cost for re-flashing chimney?


I know this is a very vague question, but I'll try anyway. My chimney is approx. 4.5' x 3'. Of course, the old flashing would need to be removed, area prepped, etc.., but on average, what would be an average price for this job? I can take pics later to assist, but thought maybe someone could ballpark it for me. Thanks!

I have several roofers coming to give estimates. The first one came in at $600 for the flashing job. He also said he would replace the ridge vent for $150. I thought those numbers sounded a bit high.

Well with what little info you have given about it, I would even say that was low. Materials will be anywhere from 200-400 or more depending on what is used.

What did his proposal say?

Remember the roofer will have to remove the shingles around the whole chimney, replace any bad wood, repair underlayment, install cricket if needed, flash, then counterflash then replace shingles.

Labor is the big deal on this and if someone is just winging it and throwing it together then you will just be wasting money.

$600 sounds reasonable. It's sometimes difficult to get anyone to do a small job like this.
Remember, this is a DIY forum so if your comfortable on the roof, you could save a few bucks by doing it yourself.

Depends on the roofer doing the job. Average price, my guy would probably charge around $250 for labor and materials.

$600 is on the high side, but if it involves also replacing ridge venting, that is still pretty cheap.

What's the slope/pitch of the roof? -
What kind of material is going to be used to re-flash it?
What's the condition of the brick/stone? -
What's the condition of the roofing materials?
Etc....
Yeah, pictures might help!

I wil do it for 200 bucks. I will just pump chalk all over the place. I would not focus on the price, found out what he plans on doing to repair it and get back to us

It is virtually impossible for anyone here to give you any information re price with what you have provided.

1. No pictures.
2. No Height
3. No slope
4. No roof type or condition
5. No location

To flash a chimney properly is a lot of work, especially if it was not flashed right to begin with, which is obviously true of yours or it would probably not be leaking, unless the cap and parging are bad.

I would say 600 would be a starting point but its hard to tell with no info.

Prices are not supposed to be discussed on the forum, so you are better off asking what should be done, then getting prices based on the information you are given. We have nothing to gain, so post some pictures and the guys here will try to educate you regarding the right way to go. There are some smart cookies on this site.
