Our Masons Can Repair Or Rebuild Your Damaged Masonry Chimney
Masonry chimneys are designed to be strong and long-lasting, but they can still deteriorate and undergo damage – no matter how well built they are. There can be many causes of chimney damage and deterioration, but these are the most common causes we address:
- Water & The Freeze/Thaw Cycle– Water will naturally be absorbed by your masonry chimney to some degree, but as chimneys age and water within the masonry contracts and expands (freeze/thaw cycles), more and more water is taken in. As freeze/thaw cycles occur, this moisture can cause cracking mortar and brick, crumbling and popping brick, holes, and other masonry deterioration. And the longer this issue goes unaddressed, the more damage can be done.
- Age/House Settling – Over the years, your house will naturally settle, which can sometimes lead to cracks and leave your chimney looking worse each year. Large cracks can grow even larger over time, sometimes compromising the structural strength and longevity of the entire chimney.
- Earthquake or Strong Weather Event – Although earthquakes are, thankfully, rare here in Northeastern New Jersey, we have felt tremors before. Remember the earthquake we felt all the way from Virginia in 2011? Earthquakes, as well as strong storms and straight-line winds, can cause chimneys to crack and lean, which can be unsafe and cause all sorts of issues.
When masonry chimneys need a little professional help, we’re here to get the job done right for our customers. If your existing chimney is in bad shape or just isn’t adding anything to your space anymore, we can help. Whatever has caused your chimney damage, you can count on the team at Complete Chimney & Fireplace Solutions to repair and restore it. Our chimney repair and restoration services include the following:
- Tuckpointing & Brick Repair/Replacement – If water, weather, or age has caused the facing on some of the brick along your chimney to pop off, crack, or decay, we can replace the brick with new brick that is matched in both color and strength. Are you seeing receding mortar joints or mortar that is riddled with holes and cracks? We can take care of that, too. We take great care to carefully remove any damaged brick and mortar, without damaging nearby areas or compromising the structure itself. We know how vital it is that new brick and mortar match the old in both composition and color, and we put in the time, research, and effort to ensure seamless, strong results.
- Chimney Rebuilds – If your chimney is leaning away from the home, poorly designed, or beyond repair, we can rebuild your chimney from the ground up. We pride ourselves on our strong, beautiful, long-lasting masonry work and will work to make sure your chimney is everything you want and need it to be.
