Masonry Brick Tuckpointing - Sacramento CA - A to Z Chimney Services

This chimney’s mortar joints are in terrible shape! This chimney may be structurally unsafe and have to be completely rebuilt.

The glue holding the bricks together on your chimney is called mortar and it is a vital part of your chimney’s structural integrity! Due to heat, rain, freezing, and thawing, the mortar between your chimney’s brickwork will eventually turn soft, become crumbly and turn into sand. Generally speaking, the older your chimney, the more likely the mortar will be eroding and in need of repair.

Loosening Chimney Mortar Joints - Sacramento CA - A to Z Chimney Services

Specialized tools are used to remove the loose and sand mortar joints.

Like a tooth cavity, if left unchecked, the mortar can disintegrate so badly that the entire chimney becomes unstable, requiring several layers (courses) of your chimney’s brick to be torn off and relayed, or worse yet, the entire chimney may need to be completely torn down and rebuilt from scratch.

Tuckpointing is the process by which soft and crumbling mortar joints are repaired, thus extending the life of your chimney significantly.
