Brick Fireplace Repair

A fireplace is a lovely thing to have in your home. However, when it requires repairs, it might not be easy for you to do it on your own. Some guidelines and the right tools are sure to put you on the right track. Stone and brick fireplaces are most commonly found in residences since they are the most traditional type of fireplace. Fireplaces are functional as well as aesthetically appealing. Regular care and maintenance can minimize the need for fireplace repairs, but it is always good to learn more!

What Is Brick Fireplace Repair?

Brick fireplace repair can mean anything from tuckpointing a firebox to replacing the deteriorating mortar joints and protect it from the elements. Brick fireplace repairs may be done at the top of the masonry chimney, shedding water off the chimney crown. In this case we also recommend a protective product called crown coat. Brick fireplace repair and the associated weather proofing compounds that Midtown Chimney Sweeps applies to chimneys is a huge benefit to older chimneys. If no maintenance is done, disrepair and expensive masonry work will be next on the agenda. Masonry materials (stones, concrete, bricks) are heavy- and masonry chimneys and fireplaces are created to properly withstand the weight of the bricks, stone, and mortar. Doing brick fireplace repair may be an involved process, particularly with older homes, because the bricks and mortar used in masonry chimney and fireplace construction has changed over the years.

Why Should I have a Midtown Technician Do My Brick Fireplace Repair Work?

When the masonry work on your chimney begins to show signs of deterioration (the mortar joints are worn away from the weather and elements), chances are you’ll need to have some brick fireplace repair done in order to repair it. Working up high on ladders can pose a risk. Midtown Chimney Sweeps technicians take time to secure their ladders and prepare for the ascent, taking only the necessary tools up with them. Older and newer bricks have far different degrees of hardness and water permeability, and the same is true for mortar, and the masonry crown. In addition to brick fireplace repairs at the top of the chimney and in the firebox, your Certified Midtown technician will also inspect the outside of your chimney. Common recommendations for protecting the outside of your chimney include water resistant chimney saver protectant. Other recommendations include coatings for masonry fireplace chimney tops called crown coat.

    Had them come to do a chimney sweep and dryer vent clean for a condo I just purchased. They were efficient and amazingly helpful, performing the chimney sweep efficiently and going way above and beyond on the dryer vent clean! They found a bird's nest that had been lodged in the dryer vents and was a possible fire hazard - and took care of it and cleaned everything perfectly. I will definitely use them again for future annual chimney sweeps and would highly recommend the to anyone around! Thank you so much!

    Tikar was really professional, punctual and got straight to work. He answered all of my questions and gave me some helpful info about the wood burning stove since I've never used one before. Thank you, Tikar!

    I've used these guys twice and had an excellent experience both time. Scheduling is easy and communication with the company is very professional. They were very conscientious about putting down drop cloths and keeping everything clean. And they went way above and beyond providing excellent service. I had bought a remote for our propane fireplace a year before and never installed it for myself. When Midtown installed it and it didn't work right away, they personally took it back the place from whom I'd made the purchase to troubleshoot before returning to complete the installation. And spent a ton of extra time on the return trip because they discovered a gasket on that fireplace needed to be replaced and they did it right then and there. I can't say enough good things about these guys!

    Great customer service and really helpful!!

    My experience with Midtown Sweeps was primarily through their employee, Jason Allen, who was polite, efficient and knowledgeable. The top of one of my fireplace chimneys had blown off during a major windstorm which is common in Evergreen. I also had a problem with a woodpecker getting in the chimney and wood-pecking on it at all times of the day and night. Jason efficiently climbed on the roof and replaced the chimney top and we had a fun discussion about woodpeckers. If Jason represents Midtown Sweeps as a typical employee, then I recommend the company at a high level and would recommend the company to anyone who needs chimney support.
