Common Chimney Rebuild & Repairs

Partial chimney rebuilds

Small chimneys (no scaffolding required) or only the top few courses of a large chimney.

Total chimney rebuilds

The brick and other materials that make up your home are protected by the roof and eaves. The chimney, however, sits up above the roof and is exposed to rain, snow, wind, and frost. Masonry materials deteriorate very quickly when they absorb moisture and are exposed to the elements, causing undue stress and integrity loss. Total chimney rebuilds are necessary when the chimney is leaning, has severe mortar deterioration or when severe brick spalling has occurred from ground level up. In most cases the firebox, hearth and smoke chamber do not have to be removed.

Roof line up chimney rebuilds

In this situation, substantial mortar and/or brick deterioration will have eliminated the possibility of a restoration job. The structure is torn down to the flashing area near the roofline, and then the chimney rebuild begins.

A chimney crown is the top element of a chimney rebuild and allows maximum protection for the construction beneath by preventing the need for fireplace chimney repairs and chimney rebuilding in the future. It protects the top of the chimney, and hangs over the chimney’s edge. The mortar used in most chimney crowns is not designed for years of weather abuse without cracking, chipping or deteriorating – situations that allow water to penetrate the chimney.
