Chimney Repair In Charlotte NC
Many homes in the Greater Charlotte NC region have chimneys that need repair. Depending on the extent of the issue, such as a water leak, masonry damage, flue liner cracks, etc., your fireplace or heating stove may be unsafe.
Solving Common Chimney Problems Safely, Efficiently, and Affordably
Felgemacher Masonry & Chimney of Charlotte has more than six decades of experience solving common and not-so-common chimney problems. We’ll take care of any issue so you can safely enjoy the warmth of the hearth at any time of year.
While Carolinians enjoy the changing seasons, our frigid winters, humid summers, and tropical storms can cause bricks and mortar to crack, flake, and crumble, destabilizing the chimney. Older chimneys are even more vulnerable to storm damage. In many cases, our masonry repair services, including tuckpointing, repointing, and individual brick replacement, can restore your chimney, avoiding a partial or complete collapse. Our team can also apply a waterproof coating formulated for masonry chimneys. It will repel water, snow, and ice to protect against future water damage.
Complete Chimney Rebuilding
Whether your chimney is leaning, has significant water damage, spalling or missing bricks, or liner cracks, your heating appliance is unsafe to use due to the increased risk of fire and exposure to poisonous carbon monoxide fumes.
Felgemacher’s masonry repair experts perform partial and complete chimney rebuilding services throughout the Greater Charlotte and Metrolina regions. We specialize in restoring old, worn, and compromised chimneys to be safe, efficient, and functional again.
Chimney Liner Repair
Your chimney liner can become damaged due to age, normal wear and tear, a chimney fire, and water leaks that require repair or replacement to protect your home and family from fire and carbon monoxide exposure. We can often restore the existing clay liner in your Charlotte home with our HeatShield® chimney liner repair system. On the other hand, when the chimney liner is damaged beyond repair, we often recommend a UL-listed flexible stainless steel liner for improved efficiency, durability, and easier maintenance.
Chimney Cap/Chase Cover Repair
Whether you have a conventional masonry chimney with a chimney cap or a manufactured fireplace with a chase cover, rain, wildlife, and debris can get inside the flue and damage the interior masonry walls, flue liner, damper, and other components. Our chimney professionals will inspect your chimney and cap or chase cover to determine whether it is best to repair or replace it.
Chimney Crown Rebuilding
One of the most common chimney problems in the Charlotte Metrolina area is chimney crown damage. The cement crown is designed to deflect rainwater and snowfall away from the masonry. A damaged crown can result in extensive damage to the flue and other internal components without prompt repair.
For minor cracks, our masonry specialist may recommend applying a CrownCoat™ water-resistant sealant to repair minor damages. Otherwise, we may need to remove and rebuild the chimney crown.
