Problems with a chimney can crop up in many forms. Here are some of the most common types of chimney repair we see on local properties most often. In particular leaks and water damage can deteriorate and destroy a structure and should be dealt with as soon as it is found to be occurring.
Minor Damage Repaired Through Spot Cutting
When the bricks around a chimney have minimal damage, spot cutting is the most frequently done method to remedy it. This removes only the damaged brick and leaves the rest of the structure intact.
Rebuilding After Severe Damage
If a small issue turns into a large one, sometimes the entire structure of the chimney needs to get rebuilt. Problems such as on-going water damage, lightning and foundation settling are some of the common reasons this is needed.
This is a preventative to help protect your home and contents from combustion of byproducts in the chimney.
Flashing & Reflashing
One of the problem areas on roofing is the flashing. This is the place on the roof where the chimney meets the roof and it is ground zero for water leaks. Signs this area needs your attention include water stains on your ceiling or walls around your chimney.
