Consequences of Not Repairing a Chimney
Common Fireplace Repairs
Damaged mortar needs to be chiselled out and replaced with new mortar. Cracked bricks may need to be patched and crumbling bricks may need to be replaced. Most repairs can be completed in less than a day. However, if not attended to, a small problem can become a major issue involving the integrity of the firebox. This will cause the repair to take longer to complete as it may require additional removal and replacement. We follow all local codes and safety procedures so that you can rest easy at night.
