We just moved into a new house built in 1959. House has a fireplace and we would like to have an occasional fire for ambiance so we sought a professional inspection. Also when it rains we do see a little bit of water come into the fireplace so we knew there were some issues. We live in the south and there are not a lot of chimney services around us. The one place I got to come out has lots of good reviews online and the guys seemed very knowledgable and professional, but I was shocked at the quote. They want to pressure wash the chimney, rework the crown with crown saver, tuckpoint all damaged mortar with 35 year rated silicone, spray the chimney with a water repellant spray, and rework the smoke chamber with Smoketite foam for $4325. If that's really what this kind of work is worth, fine, I guess I'll have to make up my mind whether it's worth it to me or not, but I'm leery about going forward without a second opinion, and since there's no one else in my area to ask, I'm asking y'all if that seems in the ballpark or not. Many thanks in advance for any reality checks you may be able to offer.
