Question DetailsAsked on 5/16/2017

install and flash triple wall chimney pipe

I'm looking for a contractor to cut through the roof of my two story house and install the final Duravent chimney pipe/spark arrest hood, install the prefab flashing and install the storm collar. I have the materials, but am a bit afraid to work on the 2 story roof. It is a 6:12 pitch.

Assuming the materials you have are complete and to code except for maybe a bit of caulk and maybe a few fasteners, I think most Heating and A/C contractor quotes would be in the $200-300 range if the chimney pipe is already basically to the roof inside the house - more like $400-500 range if there is an open chase through the walls/framing for it but they are running the pipe from the stove or fireplace (assuming one of those two since triple rather than double wall) all the way up through the house plus doing the rooftop work.

For this type job, unless they are running the entire thing top to bottom (and maybe not even then), would probably not come out to give a bid, at least not for free - would likely just quote an hourly rate and a ballpark cost and come do it, much like calling a plumber or electrician for a minor repair.

You might think a Roofer would be the person for this - and actually for the best installation on the roof penetration probably so, but most roofers would not touch that type of HVAC work because of the liability - any chimney fire, their fault or not and their insurance would be toast.
