Bricks and mortar can crack and deteriorate over time inside your masonry chimney even if you seldom have fires. You should have your chimney inspected and problems repaired before they become major issues and compromise the integrity of your chimney and value of your home.
Firebox Rebuilding or Tuck-pointing – The firebox of your fireplace takes a lot of heat and abuse. If any of the bricks are loose or if any of the mortar joints are eroded back more than 1/2 inch it may be time for a repair.
Mortar Crown Repair – The mortar crown is the concrete like surface at the top of your chimney. Its job is to shed water away from the flue and also keep water from entering the chimney chase. Cracks or missing pieces in the mortar crown can lead to extensive water damage in your chimney. Mortar crowns may be repaired with traditional masonry products.
Chimney Relining – Stainless Steel or Aluminum – is the installation of a new liner into an existing masonry chimney. A chimney liner is a component of a chimney that is designed to fully contain the products of combustion, including heat, gases and moisture. If a chimney has no liner or if it has a liner that is no longer capable of fully containing the products of combustion, including heat, gases and moisture, the chimney is a candidate for relining.
Damper Repair – A damper stops heat from escaping up your chimney when the fireplace is not in use. If your fireplace does not have a damper or a tight fitting set of glass doors you are pumping money up your chimney. Give us a call! We offer throat dampers and top sealing dampers.
