Because your chimney is constantly exposed to the outdoor elements, it is necessary to have repair work done to it to ensure it is still safe to use. Guardian Chimney offers masonry repair in Bergen County and the surrounding areas, and we offer plenty of repair services for your chimney.
The proper masonry repair work could help reduce the threat of a house from a stray spark from your fireplace, and masonry repair could also help reduce the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon monoxide is an odorless and colorless gas that can be caused by an improperly maintained chimney and fireplace.
Our masonry repair services include:
- Repointing: Also known as “tuckpointing,” this is when we scrape the old mortar out from between your chimney’s bricks and replace it with new mortar.
- Waterproofing: Using a product called Chimney Saver, we can help reduce water penetration into the chimney masonry by nearly 100%. It is also 100% vapor permeable. That means water vapors will not be trapped as they pass through the bricks as you are using your chimney.
- Chimney Crown: This goes on the top of your chimney and helps prevent water penetration and damage to the chimney. They are a very important part of chimney safety and keeping your chimney in good repair.
- Smoke Chamber: The transition zone between the fireplace throat and the chimney, this part of your chimney sometimes needs some extra attention. We can fix smoke chambers that do not meet local codes or the NFPA standards.
