Before and after showing tuck pointing (mortar repair work).

Tuck pointing is a repair that focuses on the mortar joint between brick or stone. Tuck pointing does not address the masonry itself. The most important thing to know about tuck pointing is what job should not be tuck pointed. If you are considering a repair that involves tuck pointing, get a free estimate from a Swept Away Chimney professional. We can provide you with a thorough evaluation that will help you to make the most informed decision about your chimney work.

Firebox Repointing and Rebuilding

The firebox of your fireplace takes a lot of heat and abuse. If any of the bricks are loose or if any of the mortar joints are eroded back more than 1/2 inch it may be time for a repair.

Mortar Crown Repair

Chimney Repair - before and after, crown coating repair

The mortar crown is the concrete-like surface at the top of your chimney. Its job is to shed water away from the flue and also keep water from entering the chimney chase. Cracks or missing pieces in the mortar crown can lead to extensive water damage in your chimney. Mortar crowns may be repaired with traditional masonry products or a specialized waterproof product.

Damper Repair

A damper stops heat from escaping up your chimney when the fireplace is not in use. If your fireplace does not have a damper or a tight fitting set of glass doors you are pumping money up your chimney. Give us a call! We offer throat dampers and top sealing dampers and damper cap combinations.

Factory-Built Fireplaces

We offer repairs for factory-built fireplaces including new chase covers, firebox walls, chimney caps, screens and glass doors.
