How much does it cost to remove a wood stove and chimney?

Chimney leaks where it comes down through the ceiling. We never use it anyway.

Metal duct chimney - probably about $250-500, plus repair cost of patching roof, walls, ceiling, flooring etc - which might run from at the very least several hundred to much more depending on materials and need to match what you have now.

I would start with a guesstimate of $1000-2000 complete for normal type construction, assuming you are not going to try for a true match on flooring materials at the openings - that should put you in the ballpark. Significantly less commonly if a direct wall vent unit, but that does not sound like your case.

If you mean a brick or concrete wood-burning chimney converted to wood stove use, then chimney demolition alone can run $1000+, so $2000-3000 would probably be a closer complete remove-and-repair guesstimate. Remodeling - General Contractor is probably your Search the List category unless just a simple through-the-wall direct vent unit, which a Handyman might be able to remove aqnd plug off and insulate OK.

Just curing the leak, assuming a flashing problem or leaking cap / crown area likely about $200-500 range, by a Chimney Sweep certified to do repairs also, so likely to be a LOT cheapear than removal.
