Damaged bricks and mortar can lead to some very serious chimney problems, such as:
We'll keep your chimney in top shape!
A damaged chimney cap will allow water and debris into your chimney flue. Water will eventually damage anything it stays in contact with. Debris, such as leaves, twigs and the nests of small animals, will narrow the flue and cause smoke and carbon monoxide to back up into your home. We can repair minor chimney cap damage. In most cases, replacing the cap is the best option.
The concrete chimney crown at the top of your chimney is susceptible to cracks over time. Cracks allow in water, which further deteriorates the crown. A seriously damaged crown can lead to major water damage in various parts of your chimney. We repair and seal crowns that have minor damage. When damage is severe, we completely rebuild the crown with top-quality concrete.
Chimney Flashing Installation
The flashing that skirts the base of your chimney where it meets the roof is the only defense against water running down into your home. Warped, rusted or missing flashing can lead to rot in home building materials, damage to unseen areas of the chimney and mold growth that can spread to a lot of places before it’s discovered.
