As specialists, we carry out all aspects chimney maintenance and repair work. When a chimney’s mortar is cracking, missing, or deteriorating, chimney repointing will need to be done. Chimney repointing is the process of removing degraded mortar from the joints of a masonry chimney and replacing it with new mortar. If done well, the chimney’s structure will be strengthened and its lifetime greatly extended. If done incorrectly, the chimney’s structure will be compromised, it’s appearance marred and it’s life span only moderately extended. Whether your chimney has damage or is just in need of some careful restoration, we have the skills and experience to complete works to the highest standards.

To ensure that this listed chimney repointing project was properly performed, the mortar joints were first prepared to accept the new mortar. When the appropriate mortar recipe had been selected for the chimney, it needed to be mixed consistantly & accurately. The repointing process depends on recipe & Suction,(the transfer of water from the wet mortar into the masonry) and must be carefully controlled as the new mortar is applied.
