In order for our chimney to be repaired and pointed the workers were not allowed to walk on our permanent, lightweight aluminum roof.
Three estimates were received. The first estimate amounted to $4000 to repair four rows of brick and $8000 for scaffolding. The second estimate of $9,000 was based on using a pair of binoculars to examine the chimney while sitting in his car. His claimed the chimney needed complete replacement due to an unstable base. Both these estimates were outrageous with no satisfaction about roof protection!
However the last estimate, from Straight Up Masonry was excellent - with roof assurances, needed repairs and cost! Using a custom built scaffolding, Tony replaced the corbeling along with a new chimney cap and pointed all necessary surfaces. Their work was superb!

Thanks for great review.
It was not the easiest of scaffold set up's but that doesn't mean the price has to be outrageous. All it took was some planning and the right people and we got it done no problem.
Thanks for opportunity to work on this one.
Tony, Crystal and the team.
