Top Chimney Repair related questions

No, this isn’t necessary. You can expect that the chimney specialist you hire is an expert with all the right tools and equipment for the job. They also have the requisite skills and years, sometimes decades of experience in chimney repairs. But if you have any spare tools or equipment that you think might make the job faster or easier for your chimney specialist, feel free to lend these to them. 

This depends on the extent of the damage on your chimney and the complexity of its repairs. Simple fixes like removing a few eroded bricks and replacing them with new ones can take a couple of hours. Removing and replacing a severely damaged chimney cap can take a full day of work. To know how much repairs are needed and the time it takes to do them, you may ask your chimney specialist after they’ve made a thorough inspection. 

Yes, if you offer chimney services but have more jobs than you can handle, you can hire a Tasker to help. You’ll find that you can hire a Tasker for almost any job you can think of, even for related services that have much to do with home maintenance. You can hire everyone from an insulation expert to an electrician or carpenter on our platform. 

Chimney mortar usually lasts a minimum of 25 years. The actual number of years the mortar on your chimney will last depends on how often you use and maintain the chimney and how exposed the masonry is to excess water and harsh weather conditions. To make your chimney mortar last longer and minimize the chances of needing more expensive repairs, have your chimney inspected and maintained at least once a year. 

The main reason is safety. A cracked chimney is a fire hazard. Heat and flames can travel through cracks in the flue or other parts of the chimney then ignite flammable materials inside or outside your home. If you don’t have your chimney cleaned, deposits of creosote - unburned fuel that has turned into a flaky or worse, the tar-like substance can accumulate and ignite, which can start a fire indoors. 

Tuckpointing is the process of removing damaged mortar in the space or joints on bricks of chimneys, then replacing it with fresh mortar. Tuckpointing preserves and extends the life of a brick chimney by reinforcing the chimney stack. This process also prevents the chimney structure from weakening and causing it to lean or collapse. Tuckpointing also keeps water from seeping into the chimney and creating other problems like mould growth and wood rot in your home.

What do chimney repair services include?

Chimney repair services include all the necessary activities to fix common forms of damage on your chimney. As an essential part of home maintenance, chimney repair specialists can make your chimney free of damage and safe to use, whether it’s a brick, metal or stone chimney. 

They can inspect it to determine the cause of damage, then perform the appropriate repairs. Repairs include tasks fixing the chimney cap and crown, filling cracks in the brickwork or mortar, fixing damaged flashing and other tasks to get your chimney fully functional (and able to heat your home efficiently). 

Inspecting your chimney

Chimney repair specialists begin the service by making a thorough visual inspection of your chimney. They check your chimney top to bottom and from the inside out. Expect them to go on your roof to check the chimney cap and flashing if it’s a modern chimney.

They can likewise inspect the crown, chimney cap, flue, smoke shelf and smoke chamber for brick chimneys. Once they’ve reviewed all the parts of your chimney and found any issues, they can proceed with the appropriate repairs or maintenance measures.  

Removing blockages

Should the inspection reveal that your chimney has obstructions, your chimney specialist can remove these obstructions. If your chimney lacks a cap and dead leaves, twigs or even birds have made nests within the flue, a chimney specialist can remove them.

 Blockages can also include creosote and soot buildup which your chimney specialist can likewise remove. Note that if you haven’t used the chimney for a long time, obstructions can be caused by large pests that have taken root; we advise to hire another specialist to handle any large pests in your chimney.

Repairing masonry

Another type of repair that chimney specialists can provide is chimney stack repair and chimney mortar repair. They can remove damaged masonry or mortar and replace these with new bricks and mortar. Roofers can do masonry repairs on bricks that are inside or outside the home. Once your chimney is fixed, why not hire someone to help you install an above-chimney TV

Filling cracks

If any part of your chimney has cracks from water damage or temperature extremes, your chimney specialist can fill these cracks. They can remove chipped and eroded joints of the chimney stack, then fill it with new masonry.  

Repairing chimney crown, cap, flue and other parts

Your chimney specialist can fill any cracks in your chimney’s crown, chimney cap, flue, chimney vent and other vital parts. If the chimney crown shows early signs of damage, they can prevent further water or moisture damage and reinforce the cap with a waterproof sealant. Your chimney specialist can also replace the entire chimney cap or even the chimney flashing if the damage is too severe, but note that this may be a more expensive option.

Hi there, We would like to extend the depth of our chimney breast so that we can fit alcove shelving. Currently it is 12cm deep, 155cm wide and 2.7m high and we would like it to be around 30cm deep. The work probably requires the construction of a stud wall around the breast, but we would also like it to be plastered so it's ready to be decorated. I've attached a photo below. The heating pipes will be re-routed underneath the floorboards in advance of the job with the bookshelves removed. We are completing on the property in the next week or so and suspect the job will be for the week beginning 20th June. Thanks, Rebekah - Due date: Before Sunday, 26 June 2022
