Chimney Masonry and Brick Repair
A brick chimney can last for generations, but the bricks around your chimney are also exposed to the elements. Heavy rain, wind, storms and other weather events can wear away at the masonry of your chimney over time. You may not notice right away, but any cracks, chips or damage to your chimney can cause serious issues.
For example, problems with the brick or masonry can cause your chimney to fail to work correctly as well as result in water or pests entering your home. Falling masonry can also pose a safety risk and damage your roof, eaves and soffit as well as other parts of the roof.
When we look at your chimney masonry, we can also take care of chimney cap repair. The chimney cap fits over your chimney and prevents birds and animals from entering your chimney. It can also prevent rain from entering your home and causing damage. If winds have displaced the chimney cap or if it has been damaged, we can repair or replace it to protect your chimney from additional damage.
Firebox and Fireplace Brick Repair
Your fireplace is often the focal point of a room. If you have broken, chipped, missing or damaged bricks or a damaged firebox, it can look unsightly. Since bricks are porous, any damage to your fireplace bricks or firebox can result in more dust in the air and cause moisture and even mold.
Missing bricks can mean your fireplace will not function correctly as well as create the means for water and pests to enter your home. Once a few bricks are missing, the entire chimney structure may be compromised, which poses a significant safety hazard.
The firebox is the part of the fireplace where the wood is placed in order to make a fire. If the firebox has cracked bricks or deteriorating mortar joints, it needs to be rebuilt with new fire bricks and high temperature refractory mortar; thereby restoring the structural integrity. Atlanta Chimney Doctor can rebuild your firebox to a look and function as though it were new.
