Why is fireplace and chimney repair needed?
Chimneys endure exposure to the harsh elements here in Southeast Idaho. The freeze and thaw we experience can cause the moisture to penetrate through the chimney causing damage to the inside as well as the outside. It is important to take care of damage to prevent further water damage or deterioration.
What is Tuckpointing?
Tuckpointing is the process of filling in missing, cracked, or deteriorated mortar joints in the masonry. In this process our installers remove the damaged mortar with a diamond blade and the install fresh mortar into the open joint by “tucking” or pushing it in. Solid mortar joints are important for strength and keeping water from entering the chimney. Having skilled masons do the tuckpointing or other masonry repairs on your chimney guarantees the work is done right and reduces the chance of problems down the road.
