Old Smokey’s – Your Source For Quality Chimney Repair, Repointing, Restoration & Rebuilds

For centuries, we’ve chosen brick, stone and mortar for our homes, hearths and chimneys, and for good reason. These materials are incredibly durable, and can withstand decades of use and abuse. That’s not to say that maintenance isn’t necessary, or that that these materials are indestructible. In fact, that’s not the case at all. There are many things that can shorten the life of your masonry, but regular maintenance and proper, speedy repairs can help you enjoy your masonry for years. Here are some of the most common reasons for needing masonry repairs:

  • Poor Construction – No matter how well you take care of your chimney, if it was improperly constructed, it simply won’t function properly and it certainly won’t last. A great many of the chimney repairs and rebuilds we do are a result of poor construction by someone claiming to be an experienced mason.
  • Moisture – Water is the biggest culprit for masonry damage, and causes everything from cracking and crumbling joints and bricks to discoloration and mold growth. If water is the cause of your masonry decay, let us check for leaks, make the needed repairs, and waterproof your system for the future.
  • Weather/Time – With all the rain, sleet, snow, wind, and fluctuating temperatures, your chimney’s masonry is constantly under attack. Of course, the older your chimney, the more weather abuse it’s been through, and the more likely it is in need of repairs.

What Is Repointing?

One of the most common masonry repairs we make is known as repointing. Repointing is the process of removing old, eroding mortar joints and replacing them with smooth, new mortar. The process is a very painstaking one, and requires extensive knowledge of masonry history, materials, techniques and tools. But the professional masons here at Old Smokey’s know their stuff.
