Our Masonry Repairs Are Long-Lasting & Beautiful

Masonry chimneys and fireplaces are known for their beauty and longevity, but they aren’t impervious to damage. Masonry can crack or crumble as a result of a several things:

Water/Moisture
Your chimney’s masonry battles moisture and its devastating effects on a regular basis. Every time it rains or snows, the brick and mortar absorb a certain amount of water — which can can eat away at the masonry, causing it to crack, crumble, or burst from the inside out as the temperature changes.

Corrosive Gases & High Heat
Even though masonry is incredibly durable and strong, the high heat and corrosive gases produced during a fire can wear away at the masonry of your chimney and fireplace over time.

If you’ve noticed cracks or holes along your chimney or fireplace’s brick or mortar, receding mortar joints, or flaking or spalling brick, let the team at Chimney Solutions help! Our masons have experience performing all types of masonry repair and restoration services, including tuckpointing and brick re-facing services. When we’re on the job, you can expect the most beautiful and long-lasting results, guaranteed.

The Most Common Masonry Repairs

Tuckpointing
If the mortar between your brick is receding, cracked, crumbling, or riddled with holes from insects or moisture, we can repair it or replace it through a process known as tuckpointing. During this process, we very carefully grind out the mortar, clean the joints, and pack fresh mortar. Although this process may sound relatively simple, it actually requires great skill, patience, and knowledge. If the mortar is not carefully matched in color, composition, and strength, the tuckpointing work will actually make matters worse, both structurally and aesthetically. Mortar matching can take years to master, but we’ve got it down to a science!

Brick Re-Facing
If the brick on your chimney or fireplace is starting to spall and lose its facing, we can remove the individual bricks and replace them with new bricks. We work hard to ensure that the finished work blends seamlessly with the original brickwork, so you never have to worry about unsightly results.Need your smoke chamber, firebox, or chimney crown repaired? We do it all with a commitment to excellence and professionalism!
