Chimney Masonry Repairs

If your chimney’s masonry work is looking a little (or a lot) worse for the wear these days, Ace Chimney Sweeps, Inc. is available to repair or restore it. Our masonry repair work comes with a five-year warranty, and many of our repairs come with a 10-year warranty. Brick and stone have a reputation for hardiness, but because chimneys have to tolerate cycles of expansion and contraction, your chimney’s masonry can naturally weaken, break, and stain over time. What doesn’t help is that brick and mortar are both porous materials, and being continually exposed to the elements, they are prone to cracking and crumbling.

It’s usually relatively easy for one of our chimney technicians to diagnose the issue with your masonry—whether it be those pesky white efflorescence stains, chipping and crumbling mortar, loose bricks, leaks, or even leaning chimneys. We advise that our customers not put off repair work. A leaking chimney can wind up causing costly water damage to your chimney and potentially to your ceilings, walls, and floors, too, while a leaning chimney can pose great danger to your property and the people on it. It’s also important to remember that cosmetic masonry problems can indicate bigger structural and safety issues inside your chimney.

Why Does My Chimney’s Masonry Need Repairing?

It is very important that your chimney’s masonry be well maintained to prevent leaking and to keep up the proper draft for safe and efficient chimney use. Here are some reasons why you shouldn’t turn a blind eye to your chimney’s deteriorating masonry:

  • Ignoring masonry problems can amount to thousands of dollars in water damage and related home repairs.
  • A chimney that’s in ill repair can put you at risk of a house fire; if your masonry has been compromised, there may well be sparks or flames escaping onto your roof.
  • A chimney left unrepaired might be leaking toxic gases into your home and poisoning your loved ones.
  • Caring for your masonry now will lengthen the life of your chimney.

If you have been putting off this repair, don’t any longer. Once your chimney begins to decline, things can go from bad to worse quickly. Safe and efficient chimneys require regular maintenance by a certified chimney technician.
