Chimney Masonry Repair

For as strong, sturdy, and durable as brick is, it is not impervious to damage. Brick (and the mortar that holds it together) is actually quite a porous material and, over time, moisture will get trapped beneath the surface and cause deterioration – especially if it hasn’t been properly waterproofed.

Here in Grand Junction, we experience a wide range of weather conditions that can cause a great deal of damage to your system. Fortunately, no matter your masonry woes, we’ve got a solution to fix it.

If it’s your mortar joints that are bearing the brunt of degradation, we will repoint them – and be sure to match original color and composition so the new blends seamlessly with the old. And if your bricks are flaking off in little sheets? We’ll remove the damaged ones and replace them with fresh material. 

Chimney Relining

If you’ve started to notice general inefficiencies – like excessive smoke production, poor airflow, or just bizarre fireplace behaviors – it’s probable that the issue stems from your chimney liner. No matter if your liner is terra cotta clay or formed from metal, over time, relining services are necessary to ensure a proper seal and flue size. 

We’re proud to offer stainless steel as one of our relining options because it’s durable, available in alloys appropriate for any fuel type, and comes with a lifetime warranty with professional installation.

HeatShield Repair & Resurfacing

Have you found little bits of what appear to be clay pots littering the bottom of your firebox? This is a sign that your terracotta flue liner is damaged and requires either relining or a restoration job.

Fortunately, The Chimney Doctor is a certified HeatShield provider, so if your liner is mostly intact, save for some problem areas, one of our HeatShield application services might be the perfect solution. 

Chimney Leak Repair

Ah, the dreaded drip…drip…drip…that drives everyone mad.

Chimney leaks can come from a variety of sources: the flashing where the roof meets the chimney base, a faulty or damaged chimney cap, an improperly installed chimney crown, or even the bricks or siding that make up the structure.

No matter the root cause of the system leak, the team at The Chimney Doctor will locate it and repair it properly, so you can remove that bucket and get back to enjoying your fireplace.

Chimney Caps

Chimney caps are one of the most important external elements of your chimney system. And if yours is damaged, missing, or not the exact right fit for your flue size, water entry isn’t the only thing you have to worry about. Chimney caps are designed to protect the most vulnerable part of your structure – the flue – from other things, too, like animals and any loose debris. 

We sell and install a variety of caps sure to fit your aesthetic and provide adequate coverage and proper ventilation.
