Chimneys

Chimney inspections and repair can be a home maintenance area that is plagued by scam artists. Rather than trusting an unknown door-to-door solicitor, call the reputable and dependable local source for chimney service and repair – Brandstetter’s Kanga Roof. As with all of our services, you can count on us for experienced, expert service always at a fair price.

Services We Offer:

Flashing

Chimney leaks are often due to flashing problems. Since your chimney is on its own foundation, shifting can occur. We replace flashing components with a two-piece approach to resolve chimney flashing issues. We work with a variety of materials to match any need and home style with options such as galvanized steel, copper, lead, and aluminum.

Tuck Pointing

Mortar breaks down and crumbles over time.  As part of maintaining a home, occasionally chimneys need new tuck pointing to re-secure the bricks at the joints.

Mortar Cap

Brick chimneys are topped with a mortar cap to prevent water from getting behind the bricks and alongside the flue and into the house. We can address any mortar cap issues.

Chase Cap

Your chimney chase cap keeps water and wildlife out of your flue and extends flue life. We will make sure your chase cap meets any code requirements and functions effectively.

Flue Cap

As fires burn, they give out combustion gases, which are carried out of the home by a flue. Flues and flue caps need to be checked annually to ensure that they are working safely and efficiently.

Sealing

Your chimney brick and cap should be sealed to protect them and prevent spalling (crumbling or flaking caused by water freezing inside the brick).  Your chimney should be sealed every 5 to 7 years.

Light Masonry

Our team can replace your chimney’s damaged bricks. While our services do not include full chimney rebuilds, in most cases, we can do partial chimney rebuilds.
