Take a moment and look at your chimney. It’s strong, secure. Since it’s likely made from stone, concrete, or brick, you might think it’ll stay there forever and you won’t have to do much of anything. The fact is, however, nothing lasts forever. If your chimney sustains damage, you’ll need to partner with the right company to restore its structural integrity .
At Elite Chimney and Masonry, that’s what we do. With more than 20 years of industry experience, and in business serving the Chicagoland area since 2010, we’re the professionals to contact if your chimney has sustained damage and is no longer safe to use. We specialize in rebuilding and tuckpointing bricks and mortar to restore the look and reliable functionality of your chimney’s system.
A few of the related services we offer are:
- Inspections and Repairs — Before we can repair, we need to set up scaffolding, tear down and dispose of old materials, and fully inspect your chimney system. We’ll determine the overall quality, and choose brick types and colors to match your home while using industrial-grade mortar.
- Total chimney rebuilds — If your chimney is leaning or is severely deteriorating, the wise move may be to have it rebuilt. We’ll tear down the old chimney, install a new concrete crown and rebuild the brick or stone stack.
- Mortar tuckpointing — This term refers to the refinishing of old mortar joints. We’ll start by removing old mortar and replace it with industrial grade mortar. The end result is a shield against brick deterioration and other expensive problems.
