Tuckpointing, Masonry Repairs & Chimney Rebuild Services: A Guide To What Your Chimney May Need

Neglecting necessary home maintenance is something that we are all guilty of, so you’re not alone if you haven’t given the proper time and attention to caring for the exterior of your home, especially your chimney. Area homeowners may go longer than recommended without having their chimneys assessed by specialists, which is not ideal for a number of reasons. Just a few of the problems that can ensue from chimney neglect include leaks, failing masonry and mortar, and declining overall beauty and function of the chimney and fireplace, among other issues that can occur over time. Let the experts at Alpine Chimney put all of these worries to rest.

How To Know If Your Home Needs Tuckpointing & Masonry Repair

When it comes to chimneys, damage will often occur first within the interior of the masonry and then work outwards to the visible areas. This means that if you can spot deterioration and wear on your chimney from the ground, it’s essential that you get a pro from Alpine Chimney on your roof as soon as possible. We can take a look at the state of your chimney and address any possible problems that may need immediate attention.

If your chimney happens to be in less than tip-top shape, tuckpointing and masonry repair may be necessary. Tuckpointing is when we rebuild the mortar joints, or the “glue,” that keeps the stones, tiles, or bricks together. If the actual brick is the problem, we can take care of that as well. Repairing masonry can kill two birds with one stone, as this will help seal and prevent holes or gaps from forming and growing where water can otherwise infiltrate.   

What You Need To Know About Chimney Rebuild Services

If the entire structure is damaged beyond repair, we will then offer our chimney rebuild services. Depending on the severity of the damage and the age of your chimney, we will either recommend replacing certain sections or the complete system, if its entirety is beyond repair. We’d be happy to give you more information on what this process entails and also provide a free, no-obligation estimate. Just ask!
