Services We Offer:
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 the needs and styles of Cincinnati homes with options such as galvanized steel, copper, lead, and aluminum.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
