Chimney Repairs

Your chimney has to withstand extremes of hot and cold, bearing the worst of the British winter but also the very high temperatures from within as the flue pushes hot gases upwards, away from the house below.

Whatever the problem, we can tackle it.

  • Cracked mortar
  • Repointing
  • General chimney stack repairs
  • Dislodged bricks
  • Brickwork
  • Damaged chimney pots

Chimney Flashing

Flashing is the sheet metal that keeps the intersection between the chimney and roof watertight.

Proper flashing around a chimney includes two layers. The first is called step flashing. Sections of L-shaped sheet metal are woven into the shingle courses and lapped up the side of the chimney. Next comes the counterflashing, a second layer of metal is embedded in the chimney mortar joints and folded down to cover the top of the step flashing.

It may be a case that the flashing needs resealed at the corners as they are particularly vulnerable. Contact us today for more information
