Chimney Repair

Chimney Pointing can be defined as the removal and replacement of mortar between brick or stone, restoring your chimney to its original integrity.  Chimney rebuilding, or replacing the joints between the bricks in your chimney will eliminate water intrusion.

Deteriorated brickwork can weaken the integrity of you chimney and allow cold drafts, water, and insects to invade your home. Moisture weakens the mortar that bonds the masonry units together and promotes premature deterioration of your brick. Once moisture finds its way into a brick and freezes, it will cause the brick face to fall off or become displaced. Once this happens, the structural support is compromised.

American Restoration Services masonry crews will replace any damaged mortar with new mortar to match the original joint’s texture and color as closely as possible. Done properly, chimney pointing will provide a strong, water-resistant  joint that will extend the life of your chimney and prevent future chimney repairs.  ARS also recommends installing a new concrete cap if necessary and sealing all masonry to prevent water infiltration which subjects the brick or stone to freeze thaw cycles
