Summer Is the Perfect Time for Chimney Masonry Repairs

Summer is the best time to schedule professional chimney masonry repair services with Chim Cheree The Chimney Specialists. You do not want to wait until the fall to take care of this important repair work because you may have to wait longer to light the first fire of the year in your fireplace. Once September rolls around, our Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA)-certified chimney sweeps will have a busy and full schedule working on the chimneys in the Upstate South Carolina region. Any cracked, chipped, broken, and loose bricks and mortar joints on your chimney should be addressed immediately. We highly recommend scheduling now to get these repairs and any other type of chimney masonry work you need completed before the arrival of fall. Learn more about the chimney masonry construction and repair services we have been providing for the past 40 years.


Winter weather can be rough on masonry chimneys because of freeze/thaw cycles. The bricks and mortar joints absorb water naturally, which freezes and expands when the temperature drops low enough. As the water thaws, the force can be enough to cause these materials to crack and break apart. Repeated freeze/thaw cycles over the winter can be responsible for chimney masonry damage and deterioration. To avoid extensive and expensive repairs, this damage should be taken care of as soon as possible. Since 1978, we have provided professional chimney masonry services such as tuckpointing. Tuckpointing removes damaged mortar and replaces it with a durable mortar that matches the existing masonry. According to Bob Vila, this masonry technique not only protects your bricks from mortar deterioration but also makes them look sharp and attractive. You can trust us to properly repair or replace any damaged bricks and mortar joints on your chimney.
