At W.A.W.C. Roofing we specialise in chimney rebuild include set-up scaffolding, tear down and disposal, as well as reconstruction of your existing chimney.
The most common chimney problems are:
Partial chimney rebuilds: A small chimneys no scaffolding required or only the top few courses of a large chimney.
Roof line up chimney rebuilds: Substantial mortar or brick deterioration will have eliminated the possibility of a chimney restoration job. The structure has to torn down to the flashing area at the roof line, and then the chimney rebuild begins.
Chimney rebuilds: The blocks and other materials that make up your home are protected by the roof and eaves system. The chimney is above the roof and is exposed to rain, wind, and frost (general Irish weather). Masonry materials deteriorate very quickly when they absorb moisture and are exposed to the elements, causing undue stress, integrity loss and brittle.
We provide a chimney rebuilds service where the chimney is leaning, has severe mortar deterioration or when severe brick or block spalling has occurred from ground level up. In most cases the fireplate, hearth and smoke chamber do not have to be removed.
A chimney crown is the top element of a chimney rebuild and allows maximum protection for the construction beneath by preventing the need for fireplace chimney repairs and chimney rebuilding. It protects the top of the chimney, and hangs over the chimney’s edge usually about 4inches. The mortar used in most chimney crowns is not designed for years of weather without cracking, chipping or deteriorating. The situations that allow water to penetrate the chimney.
