Some Repairs That Will Need Attention

  • Tuckpointing- Reappointing the mortar between your bricks. A simple task for some. Scraping out the old, cracked mortar and replacing it with new.
  • Flue and Crown repair – Caulk the joint between the flue and the crown. This is one of the significant areas where water will get into your chimney.
  • Crown cracks – Sitting on the top of your chimney, this is an area where water will get in easily. Check for cracks. The main goal of the crown is to protect the chimney from water entering. Caulk this area up as well to avoid the intrusion of water.
  • Seal minor cracks- You may see hairline cracks that can be sealed with a masonry sealer. This sealer has the consistency of a liquid. This allows it to get into the small cracks and seal them.
  • Cracked bricks- Bricks may form small cracks in them. A caulk gun or high-heat mortar should be the solution for these cracks.
