Tuckpointing – Tuckpointing is the practice of taking out crumbling and cracking mortar and tucking new mortar in its place. You’ve probably seen some bad tuckpoint work over the years – we sure have! But with proper and professional methods, tools and materials, tuckpoint work can blend right in with the original look of the masonry. Our experts consider the age and style of the home, and guarantee natural-looking and clean results. For more information on tuckpointing work, please click here.
Crown Restoration – A properly constructed crown can go a long way in protecting your chimney’s interior and masonry from water. Unfortunately, crowns are frequently sub-par in both design and construction. If your crown needs work or could use some extra water protection (we are in Portland, after all), the pros at American Chimney & Masonry can help. We can repair or rebuild your crown, and even apply a layer of water-repelling CrownSeal. Read more about crown restoration here.
Fireplace Refacing & Updating – Of course we aren’t only concerned with the function of your fireplace and chimney – we also want you to be happy with its appearance! If it’s time for your fireplace to be updated or made over, look no further than American Chimney & Masonry. From new mantels, doors and screens to complete rebuilds, we can help you create the beautiful hearth you’ve always dreamed of. Learn more here!
Smoke Chamber Parging – For optimal function and safety, it’s important that your smoke chamber be designed to encourage smoke and byproducts up into the flue and out of the home. Unfortunately, many smoke chambers have corbelled steps and rough, cracked surfaces, and simply aren’t conducive to proper air flow and draft. If this sounds like your smoke chamber, you may want to consider having it professionally parged smooth by one of the techs at American Chimney & Masonry.
