A chimney’s masonry is what keeps the structure solid and secure. Many things can damage bricks and mortar including lightning strikes, earthquakes, hail storms, chimney fires, extreme air temperatures and normal house-settling.
Whatever the cause, the Fire N’ Stone team is ready to get your chimney back into top shape. Masonry repair services we provide:
- Tuckpointing to replace eroded areas of mortar
- Brick repair/replacement to restore beauty and soundness
- Chimney waterproofing to keep water away from your masonry
If your chimney is suffering severe structural damage, some level of chimney rebuilding may be necessary. Note that we won’t do any work until we have thoroughly inspected your chimney to understand exactly what’s happening with it.
We offer chimney rebuilding that can focus on the chimney stack (the part above the roof line), the chimney breast (the part below the roof) or the entire chimney structure.
Any time water is getting into your chimney system, you could be facing serious and expensive damage. Water from rain and melting snow can infiltrate through the following:
- A damaged (or missing) chimney cap
- A cracked and decayed chimney crown
- Compromises to the bricks and mortar
- Chimney flashing that’s warped or eaten away by rust
We’ll determine the leak's cause and damage focal point to make the right repairs. This will add years of life to your chimney and save you big money on major water damage resolution.
Concrete chimney crowns often crack and allow water inside, where it freezes and expands and causes more damage. We can repair and water-seal any type of chimney crown, but there may be a better solution in a "big dipper" style combo.
A “big dipper”-style crown/cap combo is the perfect protection for the entire top of your chimney. Made of durable stainless steel, these are all-in-one components that do the job of both a chimney crown and a full cover chimney cap. This option also provides a no maintenance lifetime warranty whereas standard masonry crowns will require regular maintenance, costing money along the way.
The flashing that seals the gap between your chimney and roof can warp and rust, allowing enough space for water to run down into your home. Mold growth, building material rot and chimney masonry damage can be caused by compromised flashing.
The Fire N’ Stone team will look at your flashing to determine if it can be repaired or needs to be replaced. We’ll also assess related damage that may have been caused by flashing issues.
We specialize in historic chimney restoration projects for homes throughout New Hampshire’s Lakes Region. Older chimneys often are unlined and haven’t had the necessary maintenance over the years to keep them safe and fully functional.
Our technicians will perform the necessary repair work, component replacement and the masonry rebuilding necessary to restore beauty and safety to a historic chimney.
