When a chimney’s bricks and mortar become damaged through old age, seismic events, house-settling, water infiltration or for other reasons, timely chimney repair is critical. Cracks in the mortar joints often can be addressed through tuckpointing, a process that removes crumbling mortar and replaces it with a fresh new compound to add years of life to your chimney structure. We do all types of brick restoration work.
Most liners are made from clay tiles, aluminum, stainless steel or a poured-in-place compound. Many factors affect how well a liner holds up over the years, but one thing is certain: no liner will last forever. Minor chimney liner damage, although often unseen, can start a cycle of problems that can end with a major chimney fire or house fire. performs many chimney liner inspections and lots of repair work in the Buffalo NY and Rochester NY areas. When caught early, liner damage often can be fixed to prevent some serious and dangerous operating conditions down the line.

Chimney crowns are made of cement and are built at the top of the chimney, covering everything up there except the flue pipe openings. When properly designed, crowns have a perimeter drip edge to keep rain from running down along the masonry. Chimney crowns also should have a beveled design so water can’t collect and sit on them.
When chimney chase covers become rusted or otherwise damaged, water can seep into the chimney flue and lead to significant component and structural damage. Felgemacher Masonry & Chimney provides expert chimney chase cover repair and installation.
Dampers are installed just above the firebox and can be opened and closed to control the drafting of air and smoke. Rusted or broken dampers often won’t open completely or close tightly. After assessing the issue, our team can either repair or replace your damper.
