Excel Chimney and Fireplace rebuilds brick and stone chimneys. Sometime working with the mortar and tuckpointing just won’t do. We will tear down deteriorated brick to the roofline and rebuild the chimney with brick or stone around the original or a new lining, and then create a new protective mortar top and install appropriate chimney caps.
Chimney Rebuilding & New Construction:
We replace damaged brick, stone or block using the best possible matching masonry units and mortar color available.
Types of Chimney Rebuilds
There are two common rebuilds of a chimney: partial and full. Partial chimney rebuilds are mostly done above the roof or the top few courses of a chimney, which generally also requires a new crown. Full chimney rebuilds consist of completely rebuilding the fireplace and chimney. This service consists of demolishing the outer layer of brick on a chimney system and adding a new crown. With a full rebuild, the firebox, smoke chamber, and hearth do not typically have to be replaced. Chimney rebuilds are required when the chimney is leaning, has extensive masonry damage,or vertical cracking has occurred.
Chimney Rebuilds with Excel Chimney and Fireplace Repair Typically Include:
- Setting up of scaffolding and other equipment
- Removing and discarding the deteriorated brickwork
- Rebuilding the chimney as agreed upon with the client using the closest matching bricks available
- Ensuring that the new chimney meets all of the current codes
