Common chimney repairs and fireplace repairs are: mortar crown replacements or overlays, fireplace refractory panels, waterproofing, flashing leaks, and brick repairs. Chimney Wildlife Tech repairs and rebuilds chimneys and fireplaces.
Mortar Crowns Replacement / Energy Top Replacement Damper
Often a chimney top on a masonry chimney has deteriorated and is causing leaking and creating loose bricks or stone. We can overlay the existing mortar crown with a bed of mortar if the old crown is still solid but cracked. If the old crown is caving in or gone we can rebuild a new crown. Put a chimney cap over it for a lifetime warranty and to keep creatures from living in the chimney. Shown here is a new mortar crown with a top mounted Energy Top Damper. This helps with you electric bills and act for a replacement damper once yours has rusted or malfunctioned. We did but a Flat Lid Chimney Cap over this damper and crown.
Replacement Refractory Panels
Make your firebox like brand spanking new. Reline your firebox with new refractory panels. Question: Why reline with new refractory panels?
Answer: Refractory Panels help with insulating the firebox by reducing the heat on the outside of the interior walls. They help so much that you can actually touch the outside of a firebox and it is cool to the touch with a 1750 degree fire inside the firebox. Cracked up panels donot insulate as well as solid panels.
Waterproofing with Chimney Saver Solvent Base
Waterproofing is the second most important chimney maintenance a homeowner should have done to their chimney. (the first is keeping it swept) New builders for some reason do not offer chimney waterproofing. ( I don’t know why ) The brick and mortar your chimney is built with is poris and absorbs moisture. You cannot see this happening until it completely penetrates the chimney. Once the penetration has begun it will pour into the house and walls. Many roofers think it is the cap or the flashing, these may also be a factor but are not the big problem.
