Do I Need Chimney Rebuilding?
If your chimney only has minor brick damage, you likely do not need a chimney rebuild. Instead, we will replace only the cracked or damaged bricks rather than replacing the entire structure. This is called chimney spot cutting.
In addition to brick replacement, you might find that the walls of your chimney crack and deteriorate over time. This is because your chimney is constantly exposed to wind, snow, ice, and rain at the same time it’s exposed to hot gases from your fireplace. However, most chimney cracks can be replaced with simple masonry repairs and don’t constitute a complete chimney rebuild. At Capitol Chimney Service, our masonry repair fixes cracks in the mortar, waterproofing caps, and chimney crowns.
Chimney leaks are a common problem. But before you resort to a chimney rebuild, contact Capitol Chimney Service for chimney flashing or chimney waterproofing. Chimney flashing will prevent leaking where your chimney meets your roof, and chimney waterproofing will protect your masonry from water damage and staining.
On the other hand, if your chimney has suffered from water damage, a settling foundation, lightning strike, or other disaster, you might need a chimney rebuild. Chimney rebuilding is generally reserved for chimneys with severe damage that can’t be repaired with spot cutting.
