Masonry and B-Vent Repair
We do all types of masonry work from complete rebuilds to crown waterproofing. We will match bricks and mortar as best as possible to the original. Masonry repair should be performed by people experienced in chimney repair as the techniques and materials used are very different than other masonry in the home. Poor practices are rampant in this industry: roofing tar is not an acceptable agent for waterproofing, type ‘N’ mortar is suitable for brickwork but not for the crown, prefab crowns are used, and weepers are not installed. It is common for a rebuild to only last for five years unless it is done by a professional like the team at Able Wood and Gas. Please see ‘Buyer Beware’ section for more information.
