Chimney masonry repair done right requires extensive knowledge about venting systems and regulation requirements as well as masonry.

We prioritize masonry projects so that they can be completed in as little time as possible.
Damage to a chimney is not always apparent on the outside. If a chimney has not been routinely inspected or properly maintained, serious damage can occur to the point that a chimney rebuild is necessary. When masonry has been exposed to excess moisture and begins to flake off and crumble, for example, the chimney structure can begin to lean or could collapse, requiring a rebuild.
The lining of the chimney must be in good condition, free of cracks and other types of deterioration. We offer chimney liner services, including needed masonry work involved with installing some types of replacement liners. Partial chimney tear-downs may be required.
When your chimney mortar has deteriorated and exposes masonry to excessive moisture, it’s important to replace the mortar before the internal damage worsens. Tuckpointing involves routing out ineffective mortar and replacing it with fresh mortar. The process recreates the original condition of the bricks and mortar.
A cracked chimney crown exposes your chimney and home to moisture, which can lead to costly repairs. A crumbling chimney crown will need to be rebuilt. We have the experience and skill to replace a damaged chimney crown with one that will keep the moisture out of your chimney for many years to come.
The firebox is an important structure, keeping excessive heat away from combustible parts of your home. If the firebox has deteriorating mortar joints or cracked bricks, we can do a rebuild for you with new fire bricks and high temperature refractory mortar. Our skilled chimney experts can even install a beautiful Herringbone pattern in firebox reconstruction.
Parging is an ancient technique which is still effective today for addressing various problems with chimneys. Parging involves protecting a masonry surface with a stucco-like material. In chimneys, parging allows for easy drafting of combustion by-products through and out of the chimney. Parging is also useful when mortar deterioration is excessive enough to preclude tuckpointing.
