When a chimney and fireplace are in a state of disrepair, the potential for a hazardous fire is increased. Masonry repair and rebuilding are frequently needed by homeowners because, while durable, chimney and fireplace structures don’t last forever without maintenance and repair. When seeking a solution, homeowners sometimes compare bricklayer bids and go with the lowest quote. The problem is that many of the low bidders are unqualified to restore chimneys and fireplaces. They lack an understanding of how the venting system works and how to keep a home safe from potential out-of-control fires. For quality assurance, it always pays to go with experienced chimney technicians.

While performing rebuilds or masonry repairs, we work efficiently and produce high-quality workmanship while at the same time respecting the homeowners and trying to minimize inconvenience.

The mortar in a masonry fireplace usually needs to be replaced about every 25 years or less. Using a procedure called “tuckpointing,” old mortar is removed and replaced with fresh mortar. We routinely perform tuckpointing procedures in the Buckhead area, which restores chimneys to their original appearance.
When chimney mortar deteriorates, moisture gets in and results in breakage of the masonry, known as “spalling.” If the chimney structure goes unrepaired and begins leaning, chimney rebuilding for homeowners in Buckhead becomes necessary.
The firebox is an important component of your fireplace that keeps excessive heat from combustibles in your home, such as the wood and sheetrock that surrounds the fireplace. If your fireplace in Buckhead has deteriorating mortar or crumbling bricks, we can rebuild using high temperature refractory mortar and new fire bricks. Our chimney technicians are experts at building beautiful Herringbone patterns as well as other styles of firebox rebuilds.
Chimney Crown Repair
If the chimney crown is in good condition for our Buckhead customers, moisture is prevented from causing damage by getting between the flue and masonry. Cracked and crumbling chimney crowns need to be repaired or replaced as soon as possible.
Chimney liners must be in good condition, with no deterioration or cracks, to prevent hazardous chimney fires that can lead to house fires. Our chimney liner services include any masonry work that may be involved. Partial chimney teardowns in Buckhead may be required, though it depends on the type of replacement chimney liner being installed.
Parging is a traditional approach to addressing various chimney issues. The procedure involves applying a stucco-like material to a masonry surface. One of the benefits of parging is accommodating effective drafting of combustion by-products. When mortar deterioration is excessive, parging is also sometimes used in place of tuckpointing.
