Tuck Pointing, Chimney Cleaning, Chimney Repair and Chimney Restoration Services in Averill Park, Canaan, and Albany, NY

Tuck Pointing

If you notice that your chimney, home, or other brick structure is beginning to lose mortar you may be in need of tuck pointing services. The process is completed by removing the old mortar and filling in the space with new mortar. This can be an extremely difficult and detailed process and most of the time will need to be completed by a professional.

If you notice that your mortar is starting to deteriorate and comes off easily when you run your fingers over it, you need to have it looked at soon. Mortar not only holds the structure together but also protects the foundation of the structure from moisture, which can cause deterioration.

Chimney Cleaning

When it comes to chimney cleaning, it's important to inspect every single part of the chimney. A full inspection includes examining the top of the fireplace, the chimney cap, chimney crown and brickwork, while also checking for loose or otherwise affected shingles. After the chimney is deemed safe for cleaning, our team gets to work. We clean masonry fireplaces, wood and pellet stoves and prefabricated fireplaces.
