NE Portland Chimney Repair and Custom Cap

Our owner Louis took some great shots installing a new custom cap at this gorgeous NE Portland home. A few weeks ago we wrapped up some chimney repairs and manufactured a custom chimney cap to cover the entire footprint of the chimney. Here you see the repaired chimney, with its new cap.

 

 

Here are a few other shots from the day.

SW Portland Stone Chimney Repair

This stone chimney’s mortar joints had fragmentation and surface saturation decay due to water absorption and freezing. When temperatures go below freezing, saturated masonry expands and contracts, resulting in cracking and further water intrusion. In order to be properly repaired, this chimney should be tuck-pointed.  This chimney cap was not sufficient for the size of the chimney. A proper chimney cap is one that shelters and protects the entire masonry crown footprint and all terminations, with a screen to keep our pests and debris.

 

 

And here we are after, with a new crown, tuck pointing repair completed, and a new proper cap installed.
