Chimney and fireplace systems are very complex and there are many things that can become damaged over time. Luckily, some of them are very minor fixes if caught early enough.
Leaky Chimney Repair – Water can do immense damage to a chimney system and the home it is attached to. Repairs vary depending on the source of the leak, but it is crucial to have these repairs performed as soon as the issues are discovered. When it comes to water and chimneys, the problem will only get worse with time.
Chase Cover/Crown Repair and Replacement – If your crown or chase cover is in disrepair, you’ll have a serious water problem on your hands. Here at Brickliners, we provide options for crown repair and can install a new chase cover or give you a new crown that will meet your needs.
Chimney Cap Repair and Replacement – A functioning chimney cap is crucial to the proper operation of your chimney, and helps to keep water, animals, and debris out. Because it sit at the apex of the chimney system, it is especially vulnerable to tampering or damage. When damage is discovered, it is crucial that a new cap be installed by a qualified professional as soon as possible.
Masonry Re-pointing – This is a process that resolves masonry damage issues. As a chimney is battered by wind, rain, snow, and temperature changes, the mortar that holds the bricks or stones together can crack, chip, and fall apart. These small cracks and chips can cause big problems if left unchecked. Luckily, it is a rather small repair process if caught early on, and our masons have the skills to do the job right! Your chimney will look as good as new when we are finished.
Chimney Relining – If your chimney has a clay tile liner, it is likely that at some point it will need to be replaced or repaired. Clay tile liners are very susceptible to fracture from the constant heating and cooling of the chimney. Without a properly functioning chimney liner, your chimney’s masonry will take on the brunt of the temperature changes, which will cause cracking and spalling of the mortar and masonry. Additionally, damage will occur as a result of the combustion byproducts deposited on the exposed masonry. Is your clay tile liner in bad shape? Chimney relining and repair is much cheaper than an entire chimney rebuild.
We also offer energy efficient dampers, repairs and smoke chamber repairs.
