All About Masonry Repair
Here at London Chimney Services & Fireplace Shoppe, we’ve seen it all when it comes to masonry damage. We’ve been working on masonry chimneys for over 35 years, and in that time, we’ve performed countless masonry repairs. We have invested heavily in training and certification to ensure that we are prepared for anything that may be plaguing your masonry chimney.
Our Masonry Repair Services
No matter what condition your chimney and fireplace are in, we can help. Whether you are facing small cracks in your firebox or a crumbling chimney structure, we know just how to fix your problem and restore your system. Our masonry repair services include the following:
Tuckpointing: Tuckpointing is the process of repairing small cracks and mortar joints on a masonry structure. This is a common cosmetic repair for older chimneys and chimneys that have been affected by water and bad weather. Tuckpointing is important because it doesn’t just repair your chimney’s appearance — it also helps reinforce the strength and integrity of the structure.
Crown Repair: Your chimney crown is an important part of your chimney’s fight against water damage. Many people confuse this with a chimney cap, but it is actually a layer of concrete that sits atop your chimney and directs water away from the masonry structure. If this is cracked or badly constructed, it can allow water to seep into your chimney and cause major issues. We can repair and even rebuild your chimney crown depending on the severity of the damage.
Firebox Repair: If your firebox is cracked, it needs to be repaired before you can safely enjoy a fire. If you burn a fire in a firebox with cracks in the masonry, heat from the fire can be transferred to other parts of your home, which can be a major fire hazard. London Chimney Services specializes in firebox rebuilds and repairs, so when you work with us, you’re in good hands.
