What is A Chimney Repair?
Your chimney serves as a vital asset to your property. If you use your chimney often, you likely appreciate its safety and comfort. Bricks and mortar work overtime for your property, providing a source of heat during the winter and venting out smoke for cleaner air. Your chimney also releases built-up gases that would otherwise invade your property. Further, the chimney’s construction prevents critters and weather from causing a nuisance.
Unfortunately, the constant wear and tear will eventually take a toll on your chimney. Deteriorating brick and mortar is typical, with properties older than half a century. Many properties this old were built under codes and regulations long outdated.
Though gas and smoke are released through chimneys, they can still leave corrosive residue, causing internal decay. Weather and temperature cause your chimney’s exterior to crack and crumble, and trapped rainwater will make the situation worse over time. You’ll need to request a service once age and wear affect your chimney.
- Replacing Your Bricks: This service entails clearing old mortar from your chimney. Then, we’ll remove your broken bricks and replace them with brand-new bricks.
- Tuckpointing or Realignment: Tuckpointing—or realignment—removes crumbling mortar and replaces it with new mortar. This process prevents water absorption.
- Complete Rebuild: Sometimes, your chimney bricks or mortar are beyond repair. That’s why we provide total replacements to give you a brand-new chimney.
- Repairing the Crown: Your chimney’s crown often sustains more damage than the other components. You may need frequent professional repairs.
