When you have a chimney in Portland, more than likely it’s been exposed to the elements for a good portion of its lifetime. A leaking chimney can lead to larger problems within your home and getting down to the root of the issue can prevent the worst from happening.
Masonry chimneys are capped with a mortar crown to keep moisture out of the bricks, and ultimately away from getting inside the house. We can apply mortar to your chimney before the next downpour and keep rainwater from trickling into your home.
A chimney cap will help divert any water from accumulating on the cap and protect your masonry. A well-designed and implemented mortar cap will help reduce the number of repairs called for your chimney down the road. Some chimney caps also double as spark arrestors.
We’ll take care of replacing existing mortar with new mortar – an essential process for masonry chimneys during their lifetime. This will keep the structure of your chimney sound and stable and will replace cracks and loose bricks not easily identifiable from the outside.
Replacing bricks during your chimney repair can help create a stronger structural foundation for years to come. Especially with Portland’s climate, brick replacement can help identify loose or cracked issues within. Any loose or cracked bricks will receive the treatment they need to close up any gaps. Get in touch with Roof Life so we can help close any gaps!
Chimney flashing closes off the gaps created where the roof meets the chimney. Flashing is designed in layers to stave off the water coming in between those gaps. Our designs will not only help protect your home from damage but look natural with the rest of your aesthetics using material installed by our certified chimney experts.
