Chimney Masonry Repairs – Greater Richmond Area
Age and various weather events can cause damage to even the best chimneys. Bricks can become loose, mortar can start to decay and the entire structure can eventually become unsafe.
Our team performs complete masonry repair including brick replacement, tuckpointing (adding strong new mortar to missing areas) and waterproofing. For severely damaged chimneys, we can do partial or complete chimney rebuilds.
How Do Chimneys Become Damaged?
- Old age
- Seasons of intense heat and cold
- Pounding hail storms
- Lightning strikes
- Chimney fires (sometimes small and not noticed by homeowners)
- Gale-force winds
These and other events can damage the masonry of the chimney at your Richmond home. If you have noticed obvious signs of damage or suspect damage may be present, call us immediately.
Leaky Chimney Issues
Many types of chimney brick damage can lead to a leaky chimney. When this happens, water can get into the system and start a cycle of decay and cause widespread damage that’s expensive to fix.
Watch for these signs of a chimney leak:
- Water in the firebox
- Odd, musty smells coming from the fireplace
- White staining (efflorescence) on the exterior masonry
- Damp sections of interior walls or the ceiling near the fireplace
Chimney Saver Solutions regularly solves chimney leak issues for customers throughout the Richmond VA area.
