What Causes a Damaged or Leaky Chimney?
A variety of events and circumstances can cause damage to your chimney:

How We Resolve Chimney Damage for Our Ewing Customers
Chimney Liner Repair
A damaged chimney liner can put nearby home building materials at risk of fire. Cracks in the liner can allow deadly gases such as carbon monoxide to leak out and enter the air within your Ewing home.
Our technicians will inspect your flue liner and recommend either some repair work or the installation of a brand-new liner.
Bricks that are loose (spalling) and mortar joints that are cracked or crumbling need attention. Neglecting repairs could mean a chimney that starts leaning to one side or collapses entirely.
Mercer County Chimney Services provides our Ewing customers with:
Tuckpointing – to replace missing sections within the chimney structure
Brick Repair/Replacement – to prevent further water and structural damage
Chimney Waterproofing – to seal the surface so water can’t get in
Chimney Rebuilding – partial or complete, to restore your chimney to proper health
Chimney Crown Repair
The concrete crown at the top of your chimney is there to protect internal areas of the structure and the bricks beneath the crown. It’s not uncommon for chimney crowns to begin to crack as they age, and this needs to be dealt with sooner rather than later.
We do a lot of crown work throughout Ewing Township and can either repair small cracks and minor damage or completely rebuild the crown, if this is the best option.
Chimney Cap Repair
The chimney cap covers the flue opening at the top of the chimney to guard against incoming water and outside debris. The best chimney caps cover the entire top of the chimney, where a flue cover covers only the opening of the flue.
We repair damaged chimney caps for our Ewing customers; in other cases, we’ll recommend installing a new cap to prevent ongoing cycles of water damage within the chimney system and keep out venting obstructions such as leaves, twigs and small animals and their nests.
Chimney Chase Top Repair
Pre-built chimneys usually have an aluminum, copper or stainless steel chase top rather than a chimney cap. Some chase tops are prone to rust buildup, and all are prone to wear and tear over the years.
Our crew will repair your damaged chase top or install a new one that will serve you well for many years.
Chimney Flashing Repair
The flashing that seals the gap between your chimney and roof must be strong, well-sealed and in good shape. Otherwise, water can spill down into your home and cause structural damage, rot and mold.
We’ll inspect your chimney flashing and recommend either repair or replacement.
