MR Pointing and Brickwork undertake numerous chimney repairs and rebuilds projects. Chimneys can be one of the most vulnerable structures on our homes having to endure heat, cold weather, gales and winds not to the mention the damage from flue gasses.
When chimneys are structurally vulnerable small cracks appear in the mortar that expand over time. Moisture will penetrate the brickwork leading to flaky surfaces and eventually the bricks will disintegrate. The roof of a chimney is called a crown and can made from poured concrete, stone or metal. Its purpose is to direct the water to flow down the outside of the chimney to the roof.
Chimney repairs include:
• Partial rebuilds
• Repair and replacement of chimney crowns
• Repointing of chimney
• General repairs to chimney stacks and pots
• Brick repairs and replacement
