Chimney Brick Repair and Tuckpointing

As an experienced chimney repair company in Nashville, TN, Chim-Chimney understands the significance of prompt chimney brick repair. With over 20 years of expertise, we know that neglecting cracked mortar or crumbling bricks can lead to serious consequences.

Why should you repair your brick or mortar? 

  1. Moisture Protection: Cracked bricks and mortar can allow moisture to enter the chimney, leading to potential mold problems and damage to the home's structure.

  2. Indoor Air Quality: Damaged bricks can cause dangerous gases like carbon monoxide to leak into living spaces, posing a threat to the family's safety.

  3. Roof Structure: Crumbling bricks can weaken the chimney's structure, potentially leading to a collapse that damages the roof and fireplace.

  4. Pest Control: A damaged chimney provides an entry point for pests, causing blockages and other pest-related issues.

  5. Home Appearance: Chimney brick repair ensures that the chimney matches the overall design of the home, enhancing its aesthetic appeal.

Chimney brick repair involves replacing broken or crumbling bricks and applying new mortar to the joints. If the bricks are in good condition, only chimney mortar repair, known as tuckpointing, may be necessary.

The need for chimney repair arises from exposure to the elements, temperature changes, and moisture. Signs indicating the need for repair include broken or crumbling bricks, missing mortar pieces, rust inside the fireplace, chimney debris, and white staining (efflorescence) on the brick surface.

Chimney Crown, Cap, or Chase Cover Installation and Repair

Here at Chim-Chimney, we understand just how crucial chimney caps are for the protection and maintenance of chimneys. That's why we firmly believe that every chimney should be equipped with a reliable chimney cap. We offer a variety of chimney cap options, including copper, galvanized steel, and stainless steel. While copper and stainless steel provide enhanced durability and visual appeal, galvanized steel offers a more affordable choice.

Chimney caps serve several essential functions that cannot be overlooked. They act as a vital barrier effectively preventing debris and sparks from escaping the chimney, which greatly reduces the risk of fires and roof damage. By keeping unwanted visitors and debris out, chimney caps also maintain proper airflow and prevent blockages that could impede the chimney's performance. For optimal results, we highly recommend professional installation to ensure a secure fit and optimal functionality of the chimney cap.

In addition to our expertise in chimney cap installation, Chim-Chimney specializes in reliable chimney crown repair. The chimney crown, a concrete slab that seals the top of the chimney, plays a critical role in preventing rain and moisture from entering. Our experienced team offers a range of solutions tailored to the extent of the damage. This includes applying crown sealant to minor cracks, utilizing cement repair for more significant cracks, and complete crown replacement in cases of extensive damage. Professional crown repair is essential to prevent water damage, inhibit mold growth, and deter pest infestations.

By entrusting professionals like us with your chimney cap installation and crown repair needs, you can ultimately save money in the long run. Our expertise guarantees that you receive effective solutions tailored to the specific requirements of your chimney, effectively preventing further damage and costly repairs.
