Fireplace Repair

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.
