Your chimney is an important part of your home. Keeping it in good condition can help your whole home look and stay beautiful. Unfortunately, damaged masonry can negatively impact your home’s curb appeal.
At Mason’s Chimney Service, we are able to handle all aspects of your fireplace and chimney maintenance. This includes masonry repairs! Keeping your masonry in good condition not only keeps your home looking beautiful, but also extends the life of your fireplace and chimney.
How masonry gets damaged
The most common cause of masonry damage is water. Water can have a negative impact on your entire chimney system, affecting everything from the flue to the firebox as well as surrounding building materials.
Masonry can also be damaged from years of wear and tear and exposure to the elements. Settling and storm damage can also cause masonry to crack or break. Likewise, older masonry is more likely to be damaged if it has not been properly maintained over the years.
Kinds of masonry repairs
We are proud to offer a variety of masonry services that will keep your fireplace and chimney structurally sound as well as looking beautiful.
Crown Repair: The chimney crown seals the top of the chimney around the flue and protects the entire chimney from water and moisture damage. If the crown is damaged or improperly built, chimney leaks and masonry damage can occur.
Firebox Repair: Firebox damage can be caused by a number of reasons including water damage from a chimney leak or the house settling. A damaged firebox means unsafe fires; if your firebox is cracked or damaged, it should be repaired as soon as possible.
Fireplace Restoration: Whether your older home’s fireplace and chimney are no longer up to code or you want to completely revamp the look of your fireplace, we can do it all! Our total fireplace restoration can create an entirely new fireplace that is designed to be both functional and beautiful.
Tuckpointing: The mortar joints of your chimney may deteriorate faster than the surrounding bricks. If this happens, the tuckpointing process can be used to repair the mortar without affecting any of the other masonry. Our tuckpointing process seamlessly blends the new mortar with the existing masonry, leaving behind a beautiful and strong repair that will last for years to come,
