    Hi everyone,

    Not that it matters much because I've pretty much decided this is the dealer I'm going with but wanted to get an idea if this was a reasonable enough price from a dealer perspective. I'm not interested in whether or not I can do it cheaper myself because frankly, I don't climb on roofs, period. My dealer is quoting my $595 for the liner and $600 for the installation. Its a straight interior chimney that will have to have the current damper cut out and removed in order for this to fit. From what I remeber this is pretty close to normal. Is there anything else I should ask about the liner or installation like brand, type, etc before I go ahead and do this?

    Thanks,

    Eric Finn (who's almost ready for winter...)

    sounds close to me, we usally fall between the $1000-$1500 range for normal jobs.

    Sounds reasonable. I paid $600 for 30 feet of liner and associated connectors, caps etc. and another $550 to install. The install included my insert installation , but I helped on both counts which kept the cost down. Installer did all the roof work and the ugly stuff like cutting out the damper, but I ws there as a gopher (go-fer this, go-fer that) and to lift when neccessary. I also agreed to let the installer be flexible on scheduling so that meant he could fit it in on a down day which also saved me $$$. Also factored in was that I purchased insert, liner and had installation done all by the same shop.

    Wow, that seems high to me. 2 years ago I was quoted $900 for 25' s/s liner kit installed. Must of gone up some. I ended up buying and installing it my self for under $400.

    That seems like a fair price for installation. As far as the liner, $$ depends on straight/rigid - whether insulated or not, etc.

    Sounds fair to me, hopefully it includes the top and bottom block off plates and the top cap as well, mine did......

    We just paid £910 for a 12m chimney liner installation, including all bits, installation of stove, etc. That's a UK price, and in a sense it's a captive market here so prices are that bit higher. That figure worked out to around £500 for the liner, £100 for the extras and the remainder was installation.
