The common average cost for chimney cap fitting that I would charge with easy access, would be roughly £150 to supply and fit, or £100 or just under if the customer supplies the cap. The labour charge is the same for multiple caps on the same stack.

You can sometimes save a little money by buying a chimney cap for a roofer, builder or chimney sweep to install for you, and it can work out cheaper for you and easier and quicker for the installer. Often when I’m asked to cap off a chimney or install roof cowls, one thing that will make the job more expensive is the two visits it takes to first assess the job, then order the cowl or cap and turn up again for fitting. This can either make it disproportionately expensive or reduce my profit (I don’t like the latter). If the customer had already ordered their cap or cowl it would be a simple turn up and fit procedure, which saves time and money for both parties.
