Delta Masonry Tuckpointing Reliable Chimney Repair & Chimney Restoration Chicago
A chimney repair usually consists of repairing the bricks and mortar on a crumbling chimney. A chimney repair usually involves a little bit of brick repair, tuckpointing, and powerwashing work as well as some concrete work if the cap needs to be improved. Chimney repairs often also include liner replacements and sometimes even maintenance on the pipes or tubes that chute the smoke out of the chimney. However, the most common form of chimney repair usually just includes brick and mortar work. The bricks or mortar of most chimneys crumble over time and it then becomes necessary to perform a chimney repair on those areas for aesthetic as well as structural purposes.
A chimney repair will usually consist of first identifying the trouble areas and then removing the damaged bricks or mortar. Then we continue the chimney repair by installing new bricks and mortar in the previously damaged areas. If need be we can do a power wash during the chimney repair or even clean up and adjust the concrete cap. The end result of a chimney repair is a clean, straight chimney that both looks good and functions soundly.
Chimney repairs are important to make sure that your chimney stays in good shape. When a chimney starts crumbling it not only looks run down but it is also structurally unsound and may become a safety hazard if a chimney repair is not done. Likewise if bricks are out of place or crumbling it may negatively the smoke flow out of the chimney flutes. A proper chimney repair will fix your chimney and make sure that everything looks good and works well both on the inside and out.

Chimney Liner Repairs
Replacing damaged ceramic chimney liners is a very popular and effective way to prevent future chimney damage. Old ceramic liners easily crack and erode particularly on chimneys attached to high efficiency appliances. Installing new aluminum or stainless stell chimney liners allows for better air flow and prevents cooler air from higher-efficiency appliances from condensating inside the chimney and causing damage. See our gallery below for more information on our chimney liner service.

Chimney Repair – Before
This moderately sized chimney had originally been well built, but years of use and weathering had left it chipped, decayed, and eroded. Chimneys in this condition will continue to quickly deteriorate and may cause structural damage and safety hazards if left unfixed. This particular chimney needed to be almost entirely rebuilt with completely new bricks.
Chimney Repair – After
After we rebuilt and repaired this chimney it looks brand new. We removed the old damaged bricks down to the base and installed new bricks and new mortar to make sure everything was structurally sound. We also completely tuckpointed and cleaned the surface to make sure that it was sealed and that it had a sharp, fresh look. A fully rebuilt chimney like this will look great and stay in excellent shape for years to come thanks to our full professional service.
