Chimney Repair CT - Trusted & Highly Rated
Connecticut Chimney repair is a necessary part of the life of any home. Chimneys are responsible for safely removing hazardous gasses and smoke from a house, and therefore, should not be ignored.
Damaged chimneys can lead to house fires, carbon monoxide poisoning and smoky fireplaces, among other problems. For this reason, any chimney problem you need fixed is best left to the experts. The following are some of the typical jobs that our CT chimney repair experts perform regularly on chimneys we repair.
Chimney Crown Repairs
Chimney crowns are the area of the chimney at the top that seals the top opening preventing moisture and rainwater from causing chimney deterioration.
Often chimney crowns are improperly built or deteriorated. Water entry into a chimney is probably the most common problem and causes the most damage to chimneys. We are frequently hired to perform CT chimney crown repairs across the state. All crowns will crack in time from expansion & contraction in addition to settlement and poor construction, which will cause chimney leaks.
Our CT fireplace crowns are built using the highest grade cement and thickness to prevent this from happening again to your chimney. Whether the chimney crown in question involves working with concrete, brick and mortar, or stone, Neighborhood Chimney Services is the most experienced and best equipped CT chimney crown repair company.

Additional CT Chimney Repair Services
The firebox is the section of the chimney system in which a person builds a fire. A proper firebox is lined with firebrick, a substance of refractory ceramic, which can become cracked or weakened after years of use. This area of the chimney is often in need of a chimney repair CT service. It is recommended to have a thorough inspection of the firebox every five years or so depending on fireplace usage.
Smoke Chamber Problems
The smoke chamber serves as the support for the flue liner. The main problem with smoke chambers is that any chamber problem is often difficult to detect due to the majority of these issues originating behind the facial wall. While other components of the chimney may appear fine from the outside the smoke chamber could have problems. A yearly chimney inspection CT service from our chimney repair experts will alert a homeowner to any smoke chamber problems and can be corrected before any safety issues arise.
Chimney Repointing Services
Are there visible cracks in the bricks or mortar of your chimney? Does the mortar appear to be crumbling? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then you may need to get your chimney repointed before the damage gets bad enough that you’ll need a chimney rebuild. This repair is referred to as tuck pointing, pointing, or spot pointing. Pointing restores the masonry mortar joints between your bricks to eliminate water intrusion, prevent structural compromise, and restores the integrity & aesthetic value of your Connecticut chimney or home. This type of chimney repair in CT can be used for brick, stone, or block. When done properly, pointing will provide a strong, water-resistant joint that will extend the life of your masonry and prevent future extensive chimney repairs.
Diagnosing a Chimney Rebuild
There are two common types of rebuilds of a chimney: partial and full. Partial chimney rebuilds are mostly done above the roof or the top few courses of a chimney, which generally also requires a new crown. Full chimney rebuilds consist of completely rebuilding the fireplace and chimney. This Wolcott fireplace rebuilding service consists of demolishing the outer layer of brick on a chimney system and adding a new crown. Chimney rebuilds are required when a chimney is leaning, has extensive masonry damage, or vertical cracking has occurred.
