Masonry Chimney Repair
The bricks or stones on your chimney are tough and durable, but even bricks and stones can break and crumble. This can happen when water gets trapped below or under the brick or stone surface. The water will eventually make the bricks and stones crumble and break off. When this happens, it doesn’t only look unappealing, but if it is left unattended, it can cause further and major damage to your chimney. This is when masonry repair should be done. Masonry repair is an effective repair that removes the broken and damaged bricks or stones, then replacing it with new. It also prevents water damage from spreading to the remaining chimney bricks, which leaves the chimney healthy and stable again.
