Here is a degrading chimney. Its Spalling on the bottom and the top has crumbled. Advanced Maintenance Technicians and masons installed a stainless steel chimney cap and repaired the column. Chimney sealer was applied when finished to make sure this chimney is waterproof. This will help stop future damage from water and increase the chimneys overall health and lifespan

CHIMNEY REPAIR

Sometimes a chimney either completely collapses or is so damaged from the weather that it needs to be removed and completely rebuilt. As was the case hear. This one beautiful chimney! Hats off to the masons!

As you can see, They did not need an entire new chimney. But the top 2/3 had to be removed and rebuilt.It was the right thing to do and saved the customer a few bucks!

Some Repairs on the mortar joints. This called pointing, re-pointing or tuck pointing.

Big Repairs for a big chimney!

Big Repairs Continued.

Before the chimney is cleaned, key areas of the chimney are first checked.The lintel, which is the steel bar that supports the top of the opening up to the first combustible, should be at least 12 inches high.
The bricks need to be inspected. Regular bricks can’t tolerate the higher temperatures. Specialty “fire bricks” can tolerate the high temperatures generated in a fireplace. The regular brick will begin to crack and the mortar will crumble. Regular bricks can even explode! Advanced Chimney certified technicians will inspect, fix, and replace any areas that are suspect.
Trees that overhang the chimney should be trimmed back; falling branches could cause damage to the chimney.If the outside of your chimney is damaged, collapsed or needs tuck pointing Our masons will provide you with your options for repair.
