I was told a year ago this needed to be done and had the guy out today. We do not use the fp much but the prior owner did. I guess, after 20 years it was too far gone to caulk.
It cost $405 for about 90 minutes work including labor and materials. There was a $55 surcharge for something called PWR that is suppose to make it waterproof for years. Neighbors are thinking I paid way to much. Did I get hosed?
He also wanted to sell me a $500 damper that opened and closed near the top of the chiminey via a chain. he said it was very efficient compared to the regular damper I had. He said it could also help with the gas logset smell we get when I close my regular damper. Any opions on this?
