Keep Water, Bugs & Cold Out
By keeping your chimney masonry in good shape, you keep insects, water, and those chilly winter drafts out. Crumbling mortar and spalled or missing bricks are more than just an eyesore. They leave space for water and the elements to seep in and cause even more damage to your chimney.
Addressing these problems can protect your home from fires and injuries.
Remove The Eyesore For Good
Would you buy a home with a leaning or damaged chimney? No one wants to invest in a property that looks neglected. Give your chimney the structural support it needs so that potential buyers can feel safe.
A fireplace facelift with professional mortar restoration and brickwork will add a beautiful focal point to a bedroom, living room, dining room, or finished basement. Interior and exterior appeal will always pay back dividends.
