Hi All,

So how much do you reckon to go up onto the roof ( semi detached house ) and fit a chimney pot cowl.

This is a fit only job cos I’ve already got the cowl same as this one…

Edit - Manchester area

    We had this done earlier in the year also semi detached, we didn't have the cowl already but was charged £50. (edited)

    Depends if the person doing it values their safety or not.

    £50 if they don't care
    £500 if they do.

    Yup - obviously a roofer does it every day, but I find it mental someone would go up on a ladder to 5-6m height or more, then get on a roofing ladder where your life is dependent on the integrity of someone else's roof, fit a piece of equipment, then get back down for £50.

    Will depend on area best to get a few quotes.

    A pic of the roof would be more useful than a pic of the cowl.

    Could be anything from £25 - £100 round us.

    There is different sizes of cowl so you need to know the width.
    Normal to measure. Go buy one and return and fit.. Have a quick look at roof ect while there.
    £50 would be fair I guess.
    Got to drive to you and get ladders out and put away.
    Might get lucky and guy do it for way less if local and easy to get up (edited)

    how is it £50 to do a chimney cowl..

    but near £200 to put a curtain pole up for me *

    *prices may have changed, it’s been a few months since I last checked (checkatrade)

    Did the curtain rail need scaffolding?
