DC Area Chimney Repair – Masonry – Factory Built
Our certified and skilled chimney professionals provide outstanding repairs for the most straightforward or complex chimney problems. Here is a brief list of some of the repairs we often perform for manufactured and masonry chimneys in the DC Capital area:
Chimney Cap Repair/Replacement
With its location perched atop the stack, you may not notice that the cap needs repair or replacement until rain or snow leaks into your fireplace. Also, wildlife and debris can block the flue pipe, causing harmful contaminants to back puff into your living space.
We also offer custom full-width chimney caps that protect your flue and crown from water damage.
Chimney Chase Top Repair/Installation
The chimney chase top covers the exposed flue pipe in a manufactured fireplace. Water can leak inside and cause extensive damage to your chimney, flue, and fireplace when it is damaged, rusting, or corroding. Our chimney chase top repairs and installation will protect your flue from moisture intrusion, avoiding a premature fireplace replacement.
Chimney Crown Repair & Rebuilding
The chimney crown is the cement surface that tops the opening surrounding the flue pipe. When the crown is cracking or chipping due to moisture intrusion, settling, or another structural issue, our masonry professionals can reseal or rebuild the crown to save your chimney from further damage.
Fireplace Damper Repair/Installation
The fireplace damper is essential for proper ventilation. When it doesn’t open all the way, no longer creates an airtight seal, or is not operating smoothly, repairing or replacing the component should be a top priority.
We often recommend our customers install top-mount dampers as it seals the flue entirely when closed, providing more protection than a traditional throat damper.
One of our most common repairs in Northeast Virginia, and the Washington DC area, is the chimney flashing, the sheet metal that creates an airtight seal where your chimney meets the roof. Flashing damage is typically the result of normal wear and tear, improper installation, low-grade materials, and weather. However, our certified chimney professionals can reseal the flashing or provide a complete replacement using high-grade steel for durable, long-lasting protection.
Partial and Complete Chimney Rebuilding
If your chimney is leaning, has many missing or damaged bricks, and has significant gaps in the mortar joints, performing partial or complete chimney rebuilding may be necessary to prevent a structural collapse.
