Chimney Pointing

Chimney Pointing

Chimneys built using bricks, stone and mortar are strong and can stand the test of time. However, unavoidable conditions such as freezing, thawing and continuous changes in temperature can damage the mortar between the bricks and weaken the chimney. At other times, a portion of the chimney might become weak. Chimney repointing experts from Mad Masonry will repair all these damages to reinstate the structural strength of your chimney.

At Mad Masonry, we repoint chimneys using tried and tested methods to ensure that the chimney is strong enough to stand strong for several more years.


  • Chimney repointing has several benefits and is well worth the cost.
  • Enhances the durability of the chimney by correcting the damages
  • Reinstates the structural strength and stability of the chimney
  • Gives a fresh makeover to your chimney as well
  • Protects against water damage
  • Saves money on repair in the long run

Repointing chimneys is a seemingly simple job but takes a lot of precision. The crumbling mortar needs to be painstakingly removed using chisels, and replaced with fresh mortar. The existing mortar needs to be removed up to a depth of 1″ to 1.5″ before fresh mortar can be applied.

For a flawless finish, it is essential to match the color and composition of the fresh mortar to the original mortar. At Mad Masonry, we start the process by inspecting the chimney to evaluate its actual condition. Our chimney repair Chicagoland team collects a sample of the existing mortar to test it in our lab.

Once we are sure about the requirements of the chimney, we plan the repointing work and prepare a work schedule. Such planning helps us complete the job on time and keep budgets under check.

After you approve the quote and schedule, our team comes to your premises to repair the chimney. We have our own scaffoldings and other equipment required to repair the chimney even at its topmost point.

After the chimney repair, we remove all the debris generated because of the repointing. When we finally leave, your chimney looks new and your place is perfectly clean.

Chimney repointing requires experts; if the mortar is not matched perfectly or if the filling is efficient, the joints in the chimney can swell and contract with variations in temperature. This may cause severe damage in the long run.
