A masonry chimney can add a beautiful and timeless aesthetic to any home. They are also a popular choice for homeowners all throughout our service area. Unfortunately, all too often, masonry isn’t properly maintained, which leads to some unsightly and potentially risky issues. We encourage all of our customers to invest in regular maintenance to ensure crumbling masonry doesn’t become a part of your everyday life. For help soon, give our team a call!
All About Pointing
Pointing has been around for hundreds and hundreds of years, and it was initially performed to improve the aesthetic of homes, without costing homeowners an arm and a leg to do so. Nowadays, chimney sweeps still perform pointing services to keep homes all over the place looking great! If your brickwork and mortar are crumbling, consider working with us soon.
While pointing provides some cosmetic benefits to your chimney, we also like to note that it strengthens your structure, too. When brickwork breaks down, your home and fireplace become much more vulnerable, putting you and your loved ones at some serious risks!
We urge anyone facing deterioration to call in our experts as soon as possible. And, trust us, this isn’t a task you want to tackle yourself. Pointing is intricate and time-consuming and it takes a lot of patience and hard work to match up the old mortar with the new. A subpar job will look sloppy and won’t give you those long-lasting results you’re hoping for. For a great job guaranteed, give our experts a call today!
How’s Your Crown Looking?
Sometimes masonry issues stem from a faulty chimney crown. Your crown plays a big part in sending water out and away from your brickwork and anything from cracks to holes to improper installation can cause you some serious problems and big headaches. Unfortunately, many neglect to properly address these issues, causing even bigger problems down the line.
If your crown is showing signs of decay, count on us to patch things up, so you don’t have to stress come fall. You’ll be up and running again in no time!
Invest In Waterproofing, Too!
When all is said and done, waterproofing is a service you’ll want to invest in for years of added protection. We’d hate to fix up your brickwork, only to see it deteriorate due to water damage soon after the job is complete. Our waterproofing products work hard to keep moisture away while allowing your chimney the opportunity to vent out necessary fumes and vapors. If you’re worried about your masonry, give us a call now!
