When you need more than maintenance and repairs, count on Capital Chimney Corp for chimney restoration and rebuilds throughout Chicago. Remove damage, improve the look of your property, and prevent future problems with a partial or complete chimney rebuild.
Our company provides licensed and certified technicians to restore and revive your hearth and home.
Chimney Rebuilds For Peace Of Mind
Our skilled team will thoroughly inspect your system from cap to firebox to determine the proper course of corrective action. Ineffective repairs can cost you money if your structure needs to be rebuilt. Here are some of the warning signs.
- Cracked & Crumbling Mortar
- Missing, Cracked, & Spalling Brick
- Cracked, Deteriorated, & Missing Crown
- Leaning Chimney
- Storm Or Fire Damage
- Liner Problems
- Rotted Wood
If extensive brickwork damage is present or the damage extends down to the chimney foundation, a complete rebuild is required. This service consists of demolishing the outer layer of brick on a chimney system and adding a new crown. The firebox, smoke chamber, and hearth do not typically have to be replaced with a complete rebuild.
Consider A Partial Rebuild
Not every damaged chimney needs to be rebuilt entirely. In most cases, the most exposed portion of the structure will begin deteriorating first. If caught at this stage, only the topmost part will need repairs. Don’t delay calling us at the first signs of damage. Quick repairs can save you money in the long run and keep your family safe.
Protect Your Home From Mother Nature
Many chimney restoration projects stem from moisture problems. Water outside and corrosive vapors on the inside can weaken and break down mortar and other structural strongholds like wood or brick over time. Other natural elements to watch out for include the following.
- Snow & Ice
- Fire & Heat
- Extreme Wind Gusts
If not addressed, issues caused by these types of weather can cause serious fire hazards.
