Comprehensive Masonry Repair Process

Our masonry repair process follows industry standards and best practices to deliver durable and long-lasting results.

Here's an overview of our comprehensive repair process:

  1. Evaluation and Assessment: Our team conducts a thorough evaluation of your chimney's masonry elements, identifying any areas of damage, deterioration, or structural concerns. We assess the extent of the repairs needed to develop a comprehensive repair plan.
  2. Brick and Mortar Matching: We carefully match the existing bricks and mortar to ensure a seamless repair that blends harmoniously with the surrounding masonry. We consider factors such as color, texture, and size to achieve an aesthetically pleasing result.
  3. Brick Repairs: If your chimney has damaged or deteriorated bricks, our skilled masons perform precise brick replacements. We remove the damaged bricks and replace them with new ones, carefully matching the original pattern and bond for a cohesive look.
  4. Mortar Restoration: Cracked, crumbling, or deteriorated mortar joints are repaired through our mortar restoration process. We carefully remove the old mortar and replace it with fresh mortar, using the appropriate mortar mix to match the original mortar's composition and appearance.
  5. Chimney Rebuilding: In cases where the chimney requires extensive repairs or if there are significant structural issues, our team can perform chimney rebuilding. We dismantle the damaged sections of the chimney and rebuild them using sturdy materials and expert craftsmanship.
  6. Waterproofing and Sealing: To protect the masonry from moisture damage, we apply a high-quality waterproofing sealant to the repaired areas. This helps prevent water penetration, freeze-thaw damage, and extends the longevity of the masonry.
