Masonry fireplaces have many areas that need to be maintained throughout time. Crowns, caps, bricks, firebox bricks, and smoke chambers are just a few. Canterbury Sweeps Inc. helps maintain these key areas and can repair or replace them when needed.
Tuck-pointing and repointing is a service that is performed when the overall masonry structure is still good, but there are some defective mortar or mud joints between the bricks. The defective mortar is typically ground or chiseled out and new mortar is injected into the resulting cavity. The joints are then finished to enhance the appearance and provide leakage protection.
