Repairing Masonry: What You Need To Know

Our quality masonry services are a must for any homeowner with chimneys, steps, or siding made from brick, concrete, stone, or other masonry materials. While some damage may be cosmetic and doesn’t pose a severe threat to the home’s structure, additional damage may be more catastrophic and lead to structural failure.

That’s why it’s essential to know the signs of damage and have a qualified masonry repair contractor regularly inspect your home. Some common symptoms of damage include:

  • Cracks in the masonry, especially around doors and windows
  • Chipped or crumbling masonry
  • Water staining or efflorescence
  • Damaged mortar joints

If you notice any of these signs of damage, don’t wait to call a contractor. The sooner you get the damage repaired, the less expensive it will be.

Tuck pointing is the process of repairing small cracks and mortar joints on a masonry structure. This is a common cosmetic repair for older chimneys and chimneys that have been affected by water and bad weather. Tuck pointing is important because it doesn’t just repair your chimney’s appearance it also helps reinforce the strength and integrity of the structure.

Crown Repair

Your chimney crown is an important part of your chimney’s fight against water damage. Many people confuse this with a chimney cap, but it is actually a layer of concrete that sits atop your chimney and directs water away from the masonry structure. If this is cracked or badly constructed, it can allow water to seep into your chimney and cause major issues. We can repair and even rebuild your chimney crown depending on the severity of the damage.

Firebox Repair

If your firebox is cracked, it needs to be repaired before you can safely enjoy a fire. If you burn a fire in a firebox with cracks in the masonry, heat from the fire can be transferred to other parts of your home, which can be a major fire hazard. Elite Chimney NJ Services specializes in firebox rebuilds and repairs, so when you work with us, you’re in good hands.
