Common Chimney Repairs & Solutions by Home Crew Construction

  1. Tuckpointing: This process involves repairing damaged mortar joints in masonry chimneys using a mixture of new mortar that closely matches the existing one. Tuckpointing not only enhances the appearance of your chimney but also strengthens its structure (Chimney Safety Institute of America). Home Crew Construction specializes in tuckpointing to restore the beauty and durability of your chimney.
  2. Flue Relining: The flue liner protects the interior walls of your chimney from heat damage and corrosion caused by creosote buildup or acidic gases from fuel burning appliances (Chimney Safety Institute of America). Home Crew Construction offers flue relining services using stainless steel or heat-resistant ceramic materials for optimal performance and longevity.
  3. Crown Rebuild: The crown is the top part of your masonry chimney that prevents water intrusion (Chimney Safety Institute of America). If it’s cracked or deteriorated, water can seep into your chimney, causing further damage. Home Crew Construction can rebuild or replace your crown with a waterproof material like concrete or cast-in-place crowns to ensure long-lasting protection against water damage.
  4. Leak Detection & Repair: Water leaks can cause significant damage if left unaddressed (Chimney Safety Institute of America). Home Crew Construction’s team uses advanced tools like thermal imaging cameras to locate leaks quickly and effectively, followed by appropriate repairs to prevent future issues.
  5. Masonry Repairs: Masonry repairs involve fixing cracks, spalling bricks, or other structural damages in your chimney (Chimney Safety Institute of America). Home Crew Construction’s skilled technicians can assess the extent of damage and provide customized solutions using appropriate materials for long-term results.
  6. Cap & Damper Installation: Installing a cap on top of your chimney prevents rainwater from entering while allowing smoke to escape during use (Chimney Safety Institute of America). A damper regulates airflow between the fireplace chamber and outside environment when not in use, saving energy and preventing drafts (Energy Star). Home Crew Construction offers high-quality cap & damper installation services tailored to meet your specific needs.
  7. Chimney Inspections: Regular inspections are crucial for maintaining the safety and efficiency of your chimney system (NFPA 211). Home Crew Construction provides thorough inspections following industry standards to identify any potential issues before they become major problems requiring costly repairs or replacements.
  8. Complete Chimney Rebuilds: In some cases, extensive damages may require a complete chimney rebuild (NFPA 211). Home Crew Construction has the expertise to design and construct a new chimney system using modern materials for optimal performance and durability while adhering to local building codes and regulations.
