Cost of Installing a Chimney Cap

Chimney Cap Installation Cost

The average cost of a basic chimney cap is between $182 and $210 (including a stainless steel cap and professional installation). However, the cost of chimney cap installation may be impacted by a number of different factors, including:

1) Your geographic location
Installation costs tend to be more expensive in areas where the cost of living is high. Local labor rates may have a larger impact on the cost of your project.

2) Sizing the chimney cap
A properly sized cap will help to keep out water, small critters, and falling debris. Chimney caps come in a variety of different sizes. These prefabricated options are going to be the most affordable option. Having a chimney cap custom-made for your project may significantly increase the cost.

3) Degree of difficulty
Is it easy to reach the chimney? Or, will the steepness of your roof complicate the installation process? The amount of time required to install the chimney safely may impact the overall cost of the project.

4) Chimney cap material options
Stainless steel is one of the most popular choices. Copper is also pretty common, but these caps are typically a little more expensive. Chimney caps are also available in aluminum and galvanized steel. We have everything you need to know about your chimney cap options.

5) Additional chimney services
Do you just need the chimney cap? Most chimney contractors also provide chimney inspections and sweeping services. These add-ons will add to the cost of your project, especially if your chimney is need of any repairs.
