Chimney Repair

If you have seen cracks or missing mortar on the sides of this structure, it will be important for you to get in touch with us immediately for an inspection, repair, or maintenance.

Chimney problems we repair include:

Replacing The Chimney Crown

If a chimney crown becomes cracked or damaged from severe weather or by other means, water and moisture can seep into the vulnerable masonry material of your chimney system and start deteriorating from the inside out.

Repair or sealing is the best solution for a failing chimney crown and can save you from dealing with costly structural chimney repairs that could occur if the problem is neglected.

The chimney crown is an important part of the chimney system. It is the area around the top of the chimney that acts as an umbrella for the entire chimney structure.

This simple structure can actually save homeowners thousands of dollars in costly water damage repairs.


Replacing the Chimney Cap

Chimney Cap

The chimney crown is not to be confused with the chimney cap, which is an attachment that is added to the top of the flue pipe to keep debris out of the chimney flue. The chimney crown tops off the masonry walls of the chimney with a small concrete roof that prevents water from seeping into the bricks and mortar that make up your chimney.


Liner Replacement

Nearly all of these structures have a flue liner that runs from the bottom of the chimney all the way up and to the top of the structure. Its purpose is to stop dangerous gases from leaking into your family's home.

So, if you have a structure with no liner, or one that is in need of repair, it's important that you address this kind of problem right away before your family gets sick from the trapped carbon monoxide gas. What's more, if you have a fireplace and a damaged liner, creosote can build up, and this can be a huge fire hazard.


Masonry Repairs

Over time, the mortar on the chimney may start to crack or crumble. You may have damaged brickwork or bricks that have fallen out and need to be replaced. Tuckpointing can also be performed if there are issues with the mortar joints. Our team of professionals will handle repairs including prepartation and cleanup.


Chimney Rebuild

Cracking, water leaking, time, and lack of preventative maintenance may render your chimney structurally vulnerable. Sometimes, a chimney's damage is beyond repair and the structure will need to be entirely rebuilt. You may have to start over with a chimney rebuild, and with new flashing installed around the new chimney, to prevent water intrusion into the new chimney. We can help you with this from beginning to end, and help make sure that the new structure matches with the rest of the home.
