Water stain on ceiling of bathroom traced to exterior chimney construction

NC, United States   

Was told that the leak was from around the chimney frame and cap. 

A piece of aluminum siding around frame was displaced, allowing water into the outer construction and following rafters onto the ceiling.  Frame was unstable. 

Estimated cost to remove cap and frame, repair frame, and reinstall cap and frame was $591. 

Does this sound appropriate and reasonable?

Without knowing the exact extent I would say this is reasonable.
