Professional, Durable Tuckpointing
With all of the moisture we see here in the Southern Maryland area, it’s no wonder so many chimneys are riddled with cracked and crumbling masonry. These porous materials naturally absorb moisture when it rains or snows, and unfortunately, as temperatures rise and fall, they are subjected to the freeze/thaw process that causes cracks, gaps, holes, and deterioration. But there is a solution!
The professional chimney technicians here at Chesapeake Chimney & Co. perform expert tuckpointing work, carefully and strategically removing damaged mortar and packing fresh mortar in its place. The process requires a lot of experience, education, and skill if it’s to turn out clean, aesthetically-pleasing, and long-lasting. Trusting the job to the inexperienced can leave you with a mess and a chimney that’s no longer structurally sound. But with Chesapeake Chimney & Co., you can put your tuckpointing fears to bed.
We Have The Training, Experience, Education, & Tools To Do The Job Right
Our team has spent years studying and perfecting the tuckpointing technique and has undergone rigorous training through the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA), the National Chimney Sweep Guild (NCSG), and the Mid-Atlantic Chimney Association. We’ve also familiarized ourselves with the masonry material changes in our area over the years, so we can perfectly match your new mortar to your old mortar in both color and integrity.
Not only do we use the most trusted and advanced techniques, but we also use the best tools for the job. We stand behind our tuckpointing work and guarantee clean, long-lasting, beautiful results, each and every time.
