How Can I Improve the Appearance of My Chimney?

  • Book an inspection and sweeping. This gives us the opportunity to look things over, spot what might be causing any issues, then figure out the best path forward.
  • Invest in proper components. Updating an old, outdated, or rusted chimney cap, chimney crown, chase cover, or damper can make a load of difference in how your system both looks and operates.
  • Book necessary repairs. Masonry that’s crumbling or falling apart can often be restored with tuckpointing and brick replacement services. We’d be happy to get the job done right for you.
  • Schedule a rebuild or restoration. Sometimes a chimney is beyond repair. In these cases, we’ll complete a rebuild or renovation, so your chimney will, quite literally, look like new again.

Can I Paint My Chimney To Make It Look Better?

We don’t recommend painting chimneys. Why? Because paint will seal the chimney, causing any moisture that’s already inside of the bricks to stay trapped there – where it will then continue breaking things down.

If you want to change the look of your chimney, we can offer a lot of better solutions – just ask! And after it’s looking the way you want it to, we can waterproof it with a vapor-permeable industry-grade sealant. That way, it’ll still get that quality, effective barrier, but any pre-absorbed moisture, as well as any fireplace fumes and smoke, can still vent out through the porous bricks.

Is It Possible To Repair a Deteriorating Chimney To Improve Its Appearance?

Yes! Most of the time, we can improve the appearance of a broken down chimney with tuckpointing services or some brick replacements. And if we can’t? Then, a rebuild or partial rebuild may be in order, and we can help with that too.

Wherever you chimney currently stands, please reach out to us if you’re concerned with structural stability or unhappy with the appearance of it. We’d be happy to look things over with our trained eyes, then make professional suggestions for getting things back into tip-top shape.
