Just like any other part of the house, chimneys will show wear
and tear over time.
Your chimney is designed to vent hot flue gasses or smoke from a
boiler, stove, furnace or fireplace. Proper care of your chimney
will keep your home more comfortable, and prevent damage to other
parts of your home.
Crumbling or cracking pieces can
fall into the chimney. Those pieces can create damage to the inside
walls, and block the flow of heat, smoke and gasses. and can cause
rain leaks, (period)
The old mortar
is being ground off so the new mortar can adhere properly.
Next we tuck
point the new mortar between the bricks.
Then we do an
acid wash to remove to remove mortar residue.
After that, we
use a clear sealant to waterproof the chimney.
then we apply
new chimney flashing around the base of the chimney to prevent water
from seeping in between chimney and roof.
tin shingles are replaced at the base of the chimney to make sure
water flow is goes down the shingles.
When we're done
your chimney is refurbished and water tight.
