Chimney Repair

We fix leaky chimneys!

When was the last time you looked at your brick chimney?

On aver­age home­own­ers have their roof repaired or replaced every 15 – 20 years, while they may have their chim­ney repaired only once over a 50-year period.

When it comes to hav­ing your brick home or mason­ry chim­ney repaired, we at Safe­way Chim­ney have a say­ing, The soon­er, the bet­ter.” Mason­ry repairs tend to get more and more involved the longer they are put off. What could have been a sim­ple tuck-point­ing job can quick­ly turn into a tear-down and rebuild. Once one area of mason­ry cracks or flakes, that dam­age will spread over time. When water enters the struc­ture, it seeps through the mason­ry, pulling min­er­als from the brick which weak­ens the struc­ture. As this process repeats, the work required to rec­ti­fy the issue increas­es exponentially.

How do I know if I need mason­ry work?

  • Are there cracks in the bricks or stone?
  • Is the brick Flak­ing or Spalling”?
  • Is an Efflo­res­cence or white chalky sub­stance vis­i­ble on the exte­ri­or or interior?
  • Is a black/​green moss or mildew stain­ing the brick?
  • Stained brick or stone? 
  • Is dry­wall bub­bling” or sat­u­rat­ed after rain?
  • Do the mor­tar joints seem to be receding?
