Chimney Masonry Repairs
In “The Three Little Pigs,” the smart, practical pig builds with brick — and maybe the story isn’t exactly aimed specifically at underlining the durability of brick and mortar as a building material, but it’s a reminder just the same. That said, even masonry that’s built to exacting standards will experience the need for repairs after time and the elements take their toll. To ensure that your masonry chimney continues to provide your family with safe and efficient fires, it’s important to have the necessary repairs conducted by experienced, certified professionals who know the ins and outs of working with masonry.
Blue Ridge Chimney Services has an experienced team of trained masonry technicians, so we can handle chimney rebuilds from the roofline up and most exterior repairs such as flashing, crown repair, waterproofing, and tuck pointing.

Since the firebox is in closest proximity to the actual fire, it bears the brunt of serious heat, which can take its toll. At Blue Ridge Chimney Services, we can repair your firebox, or if needed, rebuild it, for optimal safety and efficiency.

Tuckpointing is a process that involves the removal of damaged mortar joints (and brick if necessary) and the application of new, durable mortar.

Our experienced masonry technicians ensure that Blue Ridge Chimney Services’ tuckpointing work is done to the highest standards.
