When the bricks face starts to flake off or “spall” the proper recommended repair is to rebuild the chimney. Rebuilding the chimney consists of the dismantling of the chimney brick work and relaying new brick with masonry cement.
There are many reasons for the damage to your chimney and all of our technicians are trained to help determine the cause of your chimney deterioration to help prevent this situation and hazard from happening in the future.
Flashing is the sheet metal that seals out water where your chimney meets or passes through the roof. It is a critical seal in making certain your chimney is weather tight. Proper flashing will be imbedded into the chimney masonry and consist of both step and counter flashing along with an ice and water shield membrane underlayment.
Flashings are custom made at the job site to insure a proper tight fitting seal between your roof and chimney. When done properly by our experts, this flashing will keep water out of your house for many years.
