Make Your Chimney like New with a Chimney Tuck-Point in Chicagoland

Chimney repair, when done properly by expert masons, will provide years of worry-free enjoyment of your fireplace.

Cracks, voids, crumbling mortar, or areas of missing mortar are common problems in masonry chimneys. Intense freeze/thaw cycles and/or water erosion can cause these problems. Large holes and eroded mortar are typical signs that tuck-pointing is needed.

Tuck-pointing is the repair and replacement of mortar between layers of brick or stone. The mortar joint plays a significant role in the structural integrity of a chimney or firebox. It binds the bricks together and keeps moisture from penetrating the structure which can result in the breakdown of the bricks. 

Chimney Tuck-point example: before and after

Our masons can tuck-point projects from the smallest areas to an entire chimney or home. We can also tuck-point the firebox walls using special high-temperature mortar, specifically designed for fireplaces.
