This chimney was cracked, loose and broken from the top down to the roof line. This chimney was loose enough to remove bricks by hand, without trouble. The crown was cracked and loose, the masonry counter flashing was rusted and bent. Bent counter flashing does not properly deter water away from the transition point of the roof line, and there was an excess amount of moss built up on this chimney from the top down to the roof line.
We took this chimney down to the roof line and rebuilt using new red roman brick. We also supplied and installed new roof and masonry counter flashing with ice and water shield. Just look at these before and after photos.
and now, after.
