Types of chimney repairs
Chimney sweeps from All Pro are trained professionals with the experience and certifications to identify problems when they inspect and clean your chimney. The type of damage found determines the type of repair you need for a safe home that retains its value.
- Crown repairs keep the top of your chimney intact so it can protect the structure. Cement crowns may need to be waterproofed or restored. Sometimes, upgrading to a different type of chimney crown is a better choice.
- Masonry repairs replace small areas of damaged mortar and brickwork to prevent further deterioration. This keeps water from seeping into the structure of your home and causing damage.
- Brick and stone veneer installation can change the look of your home by upgrading exterior and interior surfaces without the expensive chaos of masonry building. Professional installation by All Pro ensures that upgrade keeps its value.
- Chimney flashing repair keeps the flashing collar at the base of your chimney intact so it continues to keep water out of the space between the chimney and roof. Without a properly constructed flashing, water damage is inevitable in Germantown’s climate.
- Chimney rebuilds are required when previous maintenance was not done or something like storm damage occurs. Usually the chimney will be torn down to the point of structural integrity then built again on that stable foundation. A team of qualified masons does this work.
- Chimney relining replaces the crucial inner surface of your chimney. During a chimney inspection, a camera designed to examine the inside of your chimney reveals the condition of the liner. They take a lot of heat and corrosion with regular use so need to be replaced after time. We install various types of liners because there are various types of chimneys.
