Trying to keep on top of maintenance issues, a homeowner had their chimneys and terra cotta flues inspected. One company said minor repairs would be needed while the other said stainless steel flues should be installed and would give them a price break if they did the work that day. The homeowner didn’t bite but is wondering what they should do. Do they need to install stainless steel if the terra cotta is still in good repair? How much should they expect to pay?
Please chime in with your advice.
