Masonry Chimney Repairs
Fewer and fewer modern homes are being built with masonry chimneys because they are so expensive to build! Despite the expense, a properly built masonry chimney can last a lifetime with proper care and maintenance!
Because your masonry chimney represents a significant portion of your home’s value, it is wise to keep it in top condition with preventative maintenance and repairs performed as necessary on a timely basis.
A common misconception is that masonry chimneys are maintenance free, but this couldn’t be farther from the truth.
A to Z often fixes chimneys with no spark arrestors or chimney caps, cracked leaking crowns, spalling brickwork (caused by freeze-thaw damage), leaky flashing, missing mortar, relining with stainless steel or heat shield cerfractory, fixing rusty dampers, parging smoke chambers, repointing the firebox, and numerous other repairs commonly needed on masonry chimneys.
Below is a list of the most common masonry chimney repairs we see on a regular basis. Each item is a link taking you to a more extensive article explaining the problem, and the correct repair.

Dear A to Z,
Thank you for mailing us the free Home Show Tickets!! We really enjoyed the show!
Ironically it was at the show last year that we became acquainted with your competitor involved with the pellet stove cleaning mis-diagnosis (the unnecessary need of installing of a " T" clean out). After utilizing your service and submitting your findings to your competitor they reluctantly consented to refund the service/inspection fee they had charged in addition to the fee of cleaning our dryer vent which was performed during the same service call.
You can be assured that in the future we will continue to support your company for our pellet stove and dryer vent cleaning needs.
