Tuckpointing

Tandr1February 26, 2011

I just received an estimate to tuckpoint and repair the rock front on my house and chimney including materials, labor, and sealing. Not much has to be done to the chimney, but the rock on the front of the house is in need with a lot of the motor having to be cut out. The estimate is for $900 and includes cleaning the chimney. As I write this it sounds very reasonable. Am I crazy? Also I am a female and am leery! FYI I called the contractor.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

It seems pretty reasonable to me too. I had a similar job done for me a couple months back (I think 2-3 months) and I paid $870 without the chimney cleaning. I think you can save a couple bucks if you'll look elsewhere for help, but IMO it's not worth the time.
