Chimney Masonry Work
Although the hard-outer shell of the brick masonry helps protect the chimney from water damage, years of changing weather conditions can pierce its protective shield. This deterioration allows the porous clay material to absorb moisture. Also, tiny cracks and crevices in the masonry expand as water turns to ice and back to water again in the winter freeze-thaw cycle. You may notice pieces of brick on the ground and gaps in the mortar joints. Small cracks and even a few missing bricks can be easily repaired by our expert masons. More extensive masonry work may involve rebuilding portions of the chimney.
Our chimney professionals are expert craftsmen and their exceptional workmanship is reflected in their work. There is no job too big or too small. High’s Chimney Service can rebuild the most heavily damaged chimneys from the ground up. Your chimney will look and work like new and allow you to safely use your fireplace and stove in your Potomac, MD, home again for many years to come.
