You might not know this but your concrete cap on your chimney is the first thing that cracks. Then water will start to work its way down the chimney and into your house.
Preventive Maintenance is a necessity. It is cost effective to have your chimney inspected now before its too late. We grind out the old mortar joints about 2" deep and replace with new Ashgrove Type PLN or PLS. We add color to out mortar to bring it closer to the existing color on your house.
If we can not see the damage, we will fly our Drone to the top and take pictures for you.
As you can see the damaged concrete cap, we will remove the existing cap and replace it with new high strength concrete.
Brick Spalling or flaking brick is a type of failure caused by moisture and the freeze/thaw cycle. We remove the brick and replace with a new matching brick. We have 5 different brick yards in the local area we work with. Best way to stop this from happening is a brick or stone sealer. A clear masonry water repellent that contains silanes and siloxanes.
