In some cases, chimneys have suffered so much damage that rebuilding is the only solution. Chimney rebuilding for our Buffalo customers can entail rebuilding just the stack (the visible area of the chimney), just the breast (the part you can’t see) or both.
Significant chimney damage can be caused by many things including but not limited to:
- Lightning strikes
- Poor chimney construction
- Chimney fires
- Leaky chimney water damage
- Improperly built chimney footings
- Season after season of extreme weather temperatures
- Pounding hail storms
- Inferior quality bricks and mortar compounds
