3 Factors Affecting Chimney Removal Cost:
The size of your chimney has a huge impact on how much it will cost to remove it. For example, if the chimney is large, spans multiple stories, or is part of the structure or foundation, then it will cost quite a bit more to remove than a simple "bolt-on," one-story chimney.
Chimney Materials & Debris
Likewise, the type of materials used to construct the chimney, and how much debris there is to dispose of, are two other factors affecting chimney removal cost. Most chimneys are made of brick and mortar, which are quite heavy and can be expensive to haul and dispose of. If you are one of the few people in the United States with a metal chimney, it will be less to dispose of because it's relatively lightweight.
The contractor you hire will also play a role in cost. This is why it's key to shop around and find the best contractor for the job. Each quote you get will entail different things, so make sure you ask the right questions, like: How will the removal be done? How will you control dust? How will the materials be disposed of?
