How We Address Chimney Damage

After a thorough assessment of your chimney, the next steps will depend largely on the degree of damage and your chimney’s age. Here are some of the ways we return a chimney to its damage-free, high-performance state:

  • Tuckpointing & Masonry Repair – Crumbling mortar (what cements the bricks, stones, or tiles together) is both unsightly and fairly common. While not rare, it’s best to address it as soon as possible, as it can lead to larger repairs down the line. 
  • Chimney Rebuild – If repairs won’t do the trick and a chimney’s run-down state is detrimental to the homeowner, we will either rebuild entire sections of the chimney or replace the whole system to ensure it’s safe to use going forward.
