Another common issue is crumbling mortar. This issue is solved through tuckpointing, which typically turns out to be a very detail-oriented job. It involves removing the damaged mortar and replacing it with new products. Getting the new stuff to match the old isn’t always an easy process, but it’s never a problem for our CSIA trained and certified staff.
In the spot where your roof and chimney meet, water damage often occurs. This is due to the different materials expanding and contracting at different rates. Fortunately, flashing can be put in to protect this area, while still giving the materials the flexibility they need.

We accommodate and adjust our techniques as needed so that the finished product works perfectly with your specific set-up. We handle this problem a lot, so you can trust us when we say we’ve got you covered!
When your repairs are completed and your chimney looks like new again, it’s time to take the next step by implementing an extra layer of protection.

The best part about waterproofing is that it offers a breathable shield, so your fireplace can still run as efficiently as possible.
