Have you noticed a problem with the chimney? Perhaps visible damp or wear and tear has got you worried? We’re here to help with all your chimney troubles. There are some common issues you may be facing:
Where the mortar has perished, our experts can carry out precision repointing. This helps to reseal the existing brickwork. Not only is this often enough to stop any leaks, but it improves the look and structural integrity of the chimney. We also reseal the brickwork for added water resistance.
If the bricks have become unstable or damaged and are no longer safe, then your chimney stack may need to be rebuilt. This will involve the careful removal and reconstruction of the stack using brand new materials and suitable mortar. All of which will be done quickly and affordably by our team.
Our roofers are City & Guilds and NVQ qualified, fully insured and have been sorting unstable stacks since 1996! Your chimney is in safe hands with our professional, tidy team. What’s more, we boast some of the best prices around. But don’t take our word for it, take a look at what our customers have had to say.
