Fair price quote for chimney repair?

WeezerNYMarch 15, 2014

The top of my chimney is rusty and staining the brick. Had a mason come out for an estimate:

"Labor and materials to remove existing metal cap, remove 2 crs of brick, cut down wood framing if necessary and pour a new 4 inch concrete cap. Wash side of chimney to remove rust stains"

$1775

Reasonable? Thanks!

I'd advise checking around and getting more estimates. That is very high compared to my chimney repair experience here in MD.

Sounds high, get 3 estimates for comparison.
