Weathering of Chimneys
Chimneys are exposed to cold weather outside and hot fumes inside. These extreme temperatures differences can cause chimney masonry, chimney clay flues and chimney brick to crack & then the chimney quickly deteriorates. We can carry out chimney repairs on most chimneys.
Re-pointing is removing deteriorating or distressed mortar from joints between masonry units and installing new mortar into joints. Re-pointing is necessary on most exterior chimney masonry work at some point in a chimney lifetime.
Replacing Mortar on Chimneys
Re-pointing a chimney can improve the weather resistance by reducing the amount of water that penetrates the chimney masonry, thus increasing its longevity as well as other components of the structure which can deteriorate due to water in filtration threw the masonry.
Longer Chimney Lifespan
Correct repointing can last 25-30 years however incorrect re-pointing will do little to extend the life of the chimney and may lead to irreversible damage. We can offer expert advice and solutions to all of your chimney concerns and needs.

Chimney Cap Repairs
A Chimney Cap covers the chimney. A chimney is essentially a hole in your roof and if it is not properly covered a whole host of problems could incur including birds nesting. Exposing your chimney to the elements can lead to extensive and costly damages.
Replacement of Chimney Cap
Water that seeps into existing cracks can expand and cause further damage. Without a chimney cap, rain and soot mix to form sulfuric acid which is particularly damaging to your chimney and not something you want your family exposed to. Without a chimney cap rodents and insects may crawl or fly into the chimney as its a warm and protected space that animals find appealing in cold weather. An open chimney without a flu cap or a fireplace chimney cap is a fire hazard.
New Chimney Cap
Embers and sparks can fly from the top and land on your roof. Dry leaves in your rain gutters or surrounding foliage can quickly cause a blazing and lethal fire.
