We Perform Professional Masonry Chimney Rebuilds & Restorations Throughout Atlanta, Alpharetta & Chattanooga
Here in the Atlanta, Augusta, Alpharetta, and Chattanooga areas, we typically see pretty heavy rains during the year, especially during the summer and storm season. We also tend to have some pretty drastic temperature changes, and unfortunately, all this moisture paired with changes in temperature can lead to serious masonry damage. You see, even though masonry is designed to be durable and resilient, it is also, by nature, porous. In other words, the brick or stone and mortar of your chimney are going to absorb some of the rain, snow, and sleet that falls.
Not only can moisture wear away at the masonry of your chimney, but it can also cause cracks, popping and spalling brick, efflorescence, and vegetation growth, and diminish the overall structural integrity, safety, and beauty of the chimney.
Freeze-thaw cycles (when moisture inside of the masonry expands and contracts as it freezes and thaws) are especially destructive, and can cause your chimney’s masonry to break up from the inside out.
Have you started to notice damage along your masonry chimney? Are cracks, crumbling mortar, and deteriorating brick compromising your system? If so, let Copper Top help. Our team of fully licensed and insured chimney professionals specialize in masonry repairs, rebuilds, and restorations. From top to bottom, we’ll make sure your chimney is beautiful, structurally sound, and ready to serve you and your family for years. Some of the rebuild and restoration work we specialize in are shown here:
- Tuckpointing – When the mortar that rests between the brick or stone of your chimney begins to crack or wear, tuckpointing work can be done to restore its strength and beauty. During the tuckpointing process, we carefully grind out the damaged mortar, color match and mix new mortar, and professionally pack the new mortar in its place. An inexperienced and untrained worker could damage your chimney during the tuckpointing process and leave it messy and worse off than before – but with Copper Top, you can rest assured you’re getting beautiful and strong tuckpointing results.
- Brick Replacement – In some cases, water-damaged brick simply can’t be restored and instead will need to be replaced. In these situations, it’s imperative that the new brick match the existing brick in both color and composition, or you could end up with an unattractive and unsafe chimney. Here at Copper Top, we take great care to provide expert brick replacement that doesn’t compromise your chimney’s integrity or attractiveness.
