Chimney Liner Repair
Chimney liners, located in the interior of the chimney, protect the masonry from damage while you enjoy a fire. It also allows your fireplace or stove to work more efficiently. Most chimneys have clay tile liners, metal chimney liners, or cast-in-place chimney liners. Our technicians are equipped to repair any type of chimney liner.
Masonry chimneys use a mortar cap called a crown that prevents water from entering the bricks and dripping into your home. With normal expansion and contraction from heat and cold, cracks can form in the material. Our technicians use an elastomeric coating to seal the crown against water damage. They also repair cracks, crumbling material, and other problems to keep your chimney watertight.
The joints between bricks or stone are more susceptible to moisture damage because of their porous nature. The moisture in the joints can lead to expensive repairs or can even render your chimney useless. We preserve mortar from extensive damage by using a repair process called “tuckpointing.” This means we replace damaged mortar joints to ensure that moisture stays out of your chimney.
