Returning a deteriorating, unsafe chimney to full code compliance quickly and economically is what we like to do at Dr. Sweep Chimney and Masonry Services. Trust your fireplace and chimney repair to a chimney specialist.
From the day your masonry chimney is built, it becomes structurally vulnerable. A masonry chimney is constantly exposed to the elements. Not following through with preventative maintenance, mortar pulling away from the brick and time all playa factor in how your masonry chimney holds up.
Once issues go untreated for any length of time and a majority of the brick are compromised, your chimney structure needs to be rebuilt, either from the roofline up or from the ground up. With any chimney rebuild we keep the original design and try to use any existing brick you already have that are still in good condition. If needed, we can usually match your existing brick with brick from one of our masonry yards.
