The fireplace in our home had never been used by the previous owners and the house was built in 1994 (I really just wanted a cap installed) so I thought it was very odd that the damper needed to be replaced. Because this made me feel uneasy, before scheduling the work with The Fireplace Doctor I contacted a local Chimney Sweep and requested an inspection and quote to make any necessary repairs.
The local guy claimed my damper was in "excellent working order" and did not need to be replaced. At the end, I got quoted $225 to make repairs to flue, cracked concrete resurfacing, and attaching the cap. The sweep actually said The Fireplace Doctor and Ash Busters seem to think a service call is Christmas for the chimney sweep. I would not recommend using TFD to anyone, nor will I ever use you again.
I do not understand how there can be such a disparity between what you wanted to charge and what another chimney sweep said was wrong.
