Types Of Chimney Repairs


Chimneys are tough structures and last for decades, which is why families love having them in their home! But that doesn’t mean they don’t need care and regular maintenance from time to time…

Broken Down Brickwork

Bricks are made from some tough materials, but that doesn’t mean they can withstand anything. Weather, neglect, and years of wear and tear can take its toll on your brickwork, and sometimes tune-ups are necessary. Invest in our tuckpointing services right away! We will take care of any cracks, holes, and worn down brick, so that you can get back to enjoying your fireplace to the fullest.

Leaks & Water Damage

Leaks are another common issue in chimney systems. Heavy rains and snowfall are inevitable, and your brickwork faces the brunt of any bad weather. Tons of moisture gets soaked into the chimney, and it triggers a lot of issues such as clogs, deterioration, rust, rot, stains, and more. Along with this the freeze-thaw process will occur, which puts a lot of extra pressure on your system as a whole.

Addressing water damage as soon as possible will benefit you greatly in the long run. A weakened structure only leads to more issues down the line, and any unresolved problems will only get worse and worse. You could eventually face a settlement or collapse and, in the meantime, your chimney will not function nearly as efficiently as it could. Not to mention, using a damaged chimney puts your home and loved ones at risk, as it increases the likelihood of fires and can causes toxins to back up into your home.
