Deteriorating mortar and masonry

Let Our Experienced Techs Help you

The Chimney Safety Institute Of America says water and your masonry chimney is a dangerous mix. The result of prolonged water contact rusts metals in the stack structure, and the porous masonry holds water that allows mold in warm situations and the freeze-thaw effect when it’s cold breaks down the integrity of your building.

Masonry repairs

Although masonry chimneys are durable, poor construction and extended exposure to the elements of weather can lead to damaged bricks and mortar joints. Masonry materials are naturally porous meaning that they can quickly absorb water from rain or melted ice or snow. Even well-built chimneys suffer from the perils of water damage. One neglected water leak can lead to the collapse of the entire structure.

If you need masonry repairs, you need an experienced mason to make these repairs. Emberstone is proud to provide mason chimney repair services from our expertly trained technicians.

Tuckpointing

Typically, older homes were built with lime mortar. This mortar is incompatible with the mortar used today. This means that it is crucial to use the right materials when repairing damage in older homes. At Emberstone, we use tuckpointing techniques to ensure that the new mortar matches the strength and color of the preexisting mortar. After removing the damaged mortar, special pointed tools are used to tuck new mortar in between the bricks to reinforce and restore structural integrity.

Rebuilding

As mentioned above, one neglected water leak could potentially lead to the collapse of the entire structure. If the water damage is severe, this could mean that the whole structure can’t be salvaged. If this is the case, let us safely remove your old chimney and replace it with a new one.

Keep your chimney strong with proper masonry repairs!

I called this morning to schedule a cleaning when my stove started up so badly it wouldn't burn, expecting to see a technician next week some time, but when they found out that my wood stove was my primary source of heat, they said they'd be out in half an hour. My stove is running like new, and the two technicians made zero mess and were so friendly and polite. And to top it all off, they were great with my dogs and two-year-old son.
