Repointing maintains the structure of the chimney.Chimney Repointing and Mortar Repair

Chimneys can get pretty beat up by the weather. The chimney on your house is exposed to some of the most harse conditions. Hot, cold, freezing, high-wind, rain and the list goes on and on. Due to the harsh environment that your chimney is in, sometimes your chimney needs a little maintenance. The expansion of the mortar joints and brick can cause the mortar joints to separate from the brick creating cracks in the joints. It is important to seal these cracks so water doesn't get in and cause further damage.Repointed chimney after

This is why repointing is so important. If your chimney structure is still good, but cracks in the joints between the brick, block, or stone are starting to develop, Chimney Repointing is a way to maintain the chimney structure and prevent leaking chimneys. Defective mortar is removed usually by grinding or chiseling, then fresh mortar is put in its place and struck. The type of mortar used is dependant on the type of masonry that your chimney is constructed from.

If the chimney structure is bad, or if enough of the mortar has been damaged, often a rebuild of the chimney structure is recommended. This can be summarized as follows: Tuck-Pointing and Repointing maintains the structure, Waterproofing prevents further damage,  Rebuilding repairs the structure.
