Let The Experts At Atlas Perform Your Masonry Repairs
Are you noticing more chimney and fireplace decay every year? Don’t ignore it! Putting off repairs another year will just allow the mortar between your brick, tile, or stone to continue to deteriorate, compromising the structural integrity, appearance, and function of your chimney and hearth as a whole. Instead, call on the experts at Atlas Chimney! We have decades of masonry repair experience and can quickly and effectively strengthen and restore your hearth and home. We specialize in a variety of masonry repairs including:
Tuckpointing/Repointing are commonly needed masonry repairs that work to restore the mortar joints of the structure. Mortar is the material that holds brick, tile, and stone together in a masonry structure, and, although durable, it can decay, crack, crumble, and recede. Oftentimes, mortar damage is a result of house settling, insects, constant exposure to moisture, and other environmental conditions. If left in disrepair, things can go from bad to worse.
If you’ve noticed mortar damage and are looking for the right mason to repair your masonry, look no further than Atlas Chimney! We’ll carefully remove the damaged mortar and put new mortar in its place. And since we’re CSIA-certified professionals with a knowledge of masonry and years of experience, you can expect your new mortar to match your existing mortar in color, composition, and strength. Don’t let an amateur leave your masonry looking sloppy and mismatched – let our team do the job right!
A process known as the “freeze-thaw cycle” can cause your brick to deteriorate from the inside out and the face of your brick to pop off, crack, or crumble. Not only does this take away from charm of your masonry – it also takes away from the strength and stability.
