Chimney Repairs, Chimney Caps, and Masonry Restoration
Common brick and chimney problems we can solve:
Bricks falling out or missing: Missing or damaged bricks can result in a weakened wall or chimney. We replace missing or damaged bricks or blocks to restore structural integrity.
Cracked mortar or missing mortar:
Strong mortar joints are what keep your masonry chimney or wall from deteriorating and falling apart. It is important that mortar is tight and fills the entire joint. We provide full repointing service for brick and block walls and chimneys. This process involves removing the damaged mortar from the joints, cleaning them out, and then filling the joints with new mortar.
Watch Company President, John Esh talk about our Chimney and Brick Restoration Services:
Chimney crown is cracked or falling apart:
A chimney crown is the very top part of a masonry chimney through which the chimney flue extends. It is usually made of concrete. It is quite common for this crown to deteriorate and crack over time if it is not maintained. As soon as the chimney crown begins to crack, water works its way under the crown and into the brickwork or whatever is below it. This results in rot, mortar joints falling out, and bricks falling out. It can also damage the chimney flue or cause water leaks inside the building. During cold months, water seeps below the compromised chimney crown and then turns to ice. This ice exerts pressure on the chimney bricks and mortar, causing them to crack and fail.
It is important to keep the chimney crown maintained, or to repair it if it’s cracked or broken, to prevent issues like these from causing further damage.
Rodents and birds in the chimney flue, or water intrusion:
Squirrels, bats, and birds often nest in chimney flues that are used infrequently or are not used during summer months. Also, a chimney flue without a cap allows rainwater to run down the inside of the flue, sometimes resulting in leaks or other interior damage. To prevent this, we strongly recommend that a flue/chimney cap is installed. This keeps critters and weather out, protects the top of the chimney, and goes a long way in ensuring that your chimney remains intact and fully functional.
Chimney caps are available in many colors, styles, and materials like aluminum, painted steel, copper, or stainless steel. The range in price based on size and style. Some come in highly decorative styles, while others are fabricated just to do the job of water or rodent intrusion.

The replacement was done on schedule and looks great. It has rained a couple of times since the
roof was replaced and all is good. The old roof was replaced and the new installed. The team picked up their trash at the end of each of the 3 days.
