Here are some common chimney repair jobs.
Chimney crown repair
The chimney crown is the concrete slab that covers most of the top opening of the chimney. Its purpose is to keep water from penetrating the system. Crowns are prone to developing cracks over time, and these cracks can let in damaging water. Bricks and mortar can be damaged by water as can the home’s building materials adjacent to the chimney. Call Chimney Solutions to repair or rebuild a damaged chimney crown.
The average chimney masonry will last about 25 years, sometimes less. At one point, decomposition will begin and can lead to the chimney being unsafe to operate. Tuckpointing is a process we use to replace old, crumbly mortar with new, strong mortar. The result is restored structural integrity and safety. We provide tuckpointing on chimneys throughout the Atlanta region.
Another chimney service we offer is parging. In this process, we coat the surfaces on the inside of the smoke chamber with a mortar compound. This seals gaps and holes and smooths out rough surface areas so that combustion gasses and carbon monoxide travel more efficiently through the flue. Construction codes mandate that all newly built chimneys be parged, and existing chimneys should be, too.
If a chimney has gone too long and experiences significant deterioration of its bricks and mortar, it likely will begin to lean. A leaning chimney is a very dangerous chimney. Fortunately, we can do a complete rebuild, leaving you with a new chimney that will serve you well for many years.
Chimney liner repair
Age and intense heat can eventually compromise even the best chimney liners, making them unsafe. Broken or cracked liners can allow condensation to seep into the chimney structure and cause severe damage over time. Chimney Solutions provides Atlanta homeowners with complete chimney liner repair and installation services.
Fireboxes, like all components of a fireplace system, can fall into disrepair. Surrounding bricks and mortar can begin to deteriorate, leaving sections of the home’s building materials vulnerable to fire. Our certified technicians can repair or rebuild damaged fireboxes to ensure the safety of you and your family.
