Our technicians are chimney repair specialists.
It’s essential that a chimney and its associated masonry be properly maintained for a roofing system to function correctly. Brick, mortar, and similar stone-works deteriorate and weather from exposure to the elements over time, forming channels and pathways that water can enter your home through. The most common remedy for such issues is tuckpointing. What is tuckpointing?, Tuckpointing helps to prevent water from entering into the chimney system. If the mortar joints are not repaired, water will seep down the chimney and sometimes between the chimney and the flue lining.In short, it is the re-mortaring of your chimney’s vertical and horizontal lines. In the process, reforming a waterproof barrier to protect your home’s interior from the elements. Counter flashing failure is another common issue for chimney’s that can cause leaks in your home.
