Chimney Liner and Damper

dfaustclancyJuly 26, 2011

Hi guys,

Home inspector for my buyer (I'm trying to sell.) has said that I need a new chimney liner and a damper. His words exactly -- Fireplace has cracks in the bricks and missing a damper. Fireplace has no lining.

The two-story with walk-up attic house is almost 100 years old and has a central chimney.

I don't know what other info you'd need to answer my question which is how much to put both in?

Thanks for any and all answers. Much appreciated.

Ok, I got a quote for $2400 for new SS chimney liner and new damper with handle to be installed off side to the chimney in the house. This is for Quincy, MA. Is this a good price? There was never a liner in the original chimney.
