approx cost?? to repair brick Fireplace flashing (all 4 sides)

We have noticed a few minor moisture leaks on our Living Room cathedral ceiling near our brick Fireplace, we live in northern NJ. I went onto roof and noticed the flashing needs minor repair along with lower parts of chimney near flashing needs to be repointed. Brick chimney is in middle of roof because our 2 fireplaces are in middle of house. About how much should a mason charge me for this?? I was thinking perhaps $300 range at most?? thanks

Hard to say without being there to look at it. Best practice is to get bids from three or more contractors so you can compare.

thanks Mitch, i hear you, but easier said than done. Its difficult to get 3 estimates on a minor repair like this. Plus I have to juggle work and ensure I'm home which isn't easy when you have a Corporate job.
