Professional Masonry Repairs That Are As Durable As They Are Beautiful
Masonry has long been used for chimneys and fireplaces, and is valued and enjoyed for its beauty, strength, and durability. But even the most expertly constructed chimneys and fireplaces require some TLC from time to time. If your masonry is in need of repair, you can count on the experts at Fireplace Solutions by the Chimney Sweeper to provide the most beautiful, durable, and effective results possible. These are some of the most common masonry repairs we make:
Firebox Rebuild & Repair
The part of the fireplace that holds the fire itself is known as the firebox. This area takes quite a beating from heat, and over time, the firebrick can develop cracks, gaps, and holes. Of course, some fireboxes are improperly constructed from brick that is not designed for such temperatures, making them even more susceptible to damage. If your firebox is showing signs of wear or you think it was built of improper materials, we can help! We provide expert repairs and can even rebuild your firebox. Click here to learn more!
Chimney Crown Repair & Rebuild
A chimney with a deteriorating or improperly constructed crown will inevitably suffer water damage in time — But we’re here to help! If your crown is in rough shape, we can seal all cracks and apply a water-repellent to prevent further damage. We also specialize in crown rebuilds, so if your crown wasn’t built of the proper materials or to the proper specs, we can provide you with one that is!

Throat/Smoke Chamber Parging & Repair
The throat and smoke chamber are located just above the firebox and are responsible for directing smoke and gases up the chimney. Unfortunately, these areas can develop holes, cracks, and uneven surfaces as a result of heat damage and poor construction. If your throat or smoke chamber is damaged or missing a parge coating, we can help. Using either HeatShield® or Chamber Tech 2000, we can provide a sealed surface to prevent heat transfer and increase draft and air flow. Click here to read more.
Our technicians also specialize in tuckpointing, which is the process of replacing or repairing damaged or receding mortar. When our expert techs do your tuckpointing work, you’ll be left with strong results — guaranteed.

Chimney & Flue Extensions
A lot of draft and smoke problems can be traced back to one thing: the chimney or flue is not tall enough. If we find that this is the reason for your smoke or draft problems, we can extend the flue and chimney to the appropriate height for optimal function. Learn more here!
Stain Removal With Paint “N” Peel
No one likes to spend evenings gathered around a dingy, smoke-stained fireplace! If your fireplace could use a refresh, you don’t have to invest in a full rebuild. Instead, we can use Paint “N” Peel to safely remove smoke and soot stains in less than 24 hours. Learn more about how this amazing product works here!
The best way to protect repairs and prevent the need for repairs down the line is to invest in a professional waterproofing. Here at Fireplace Solutions by the Chimney Sweeper, we use the industry’s best waterproofing product, ChimneySaver, which is a vapor-permeable water-repellent substance that doesn’t alter the look of your masonry.
