You may be in the market for Long Island Chimney Repair as we have some pretty diverse weather conditions on the island. And it’s this variance in seasons and elements that can cause significant damage to many masonry products. If your chimney has real brick, you may notice areas of your chimney beginning to crumble. Typically this is caused by water getting into the mortar between the bricks. This moisture can really become a problem in colder months when the mortar can have a lot of moisture, which then can freeze. Once water freezes, nothing can stop it’s
destructive power. Ice can begin to make little cracks in the mortar which then allows more moisture in for the next round of freezing. And this process repeats until the cracks become large enough for mortar to crack off the chimney altogether.
When it comes time to considering Long Island Chimney Repair, contact NY Paving and Masonry. We will assess the damage to your chimney and then explain the procedures we use to mend and repair the chimney. This process will include removing some of the existing mortar. Once we have made sufficient room in the joints, we will add fresh mortar that matches the characteristics of the previous mortar. These characteristics can include color, texture and even strength.
With the proper mortar on site, we will begin the refilling process, or the actual re-pointing process. Most chimneys can be re-pointed in a singe day . Re-pointing is a smart move to prevent additional damage to the chimney or the home which it rests upon. Contact NY Paving and Masonry for Long Island Chimney Re-pointing.
