Common Chimney Repairs & Installations
A chimney is not only for ventilating your fireplace; it also adds to the look and beauty of your home. It is one of the most important features of your house, so it’s important to keep it beautiful as well as structurally safe so that it can continue to add to the value of your home for years to come. Whether you need to repair an existing chimney or install an updated fireplace to match the look of your home, Total Chimney Care is the right company for the job.

At Total Chimney Care, our experienced sweeps have dealt with nearly every chimney problem you can imagine. From blocked chimney caps and poorly fitting dampers to cracked masonry, leaks and water problems, we have experience with all types of repairs and restorations. We will come prepared to analyze your problem and propose a solution that will meet your needs and fit your budget.
Of course, sometimes repairs just aren’t enough because the damage is too severe and the chimney needs either a partial or total rebuild. You’re in good hands with us as our experienced chimney techs and masonry experts can rebuild your system and get your chimney back in good working order.
Sometimes you’ll see just a brick or two on the chimney or firebox wall that’s falling apart. We call that spalling. In many instances we can do a masonry procedure call tuck-pointing or repointing that can take care of those small areas that are showing damage without making large repairs.
Another very important place we often see damage is on the crown, which is on the very top of the chimney and is something we will take a look at when we inspect the system every year. When the crown is cracked or loose, water can run into the system from the sides and penetrate it even though you have a cap or surround. The concrete will erode over time, so taking the time to repair the crown is important when any damage is first noticed. That old saying, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” is good to remember when thinking about your fireplace and chimney.
