Stone chimney repair in Clintonville
We built this chimney in a unique style to correct problems. Previously the chimney was damaged. The brick was cracked and crumbling and in danger of causing more damage to the roof. It was venting a furnace, which is a common cause of damage to the chimney. Furnaces vent acids and gases that harm unlined masonry chimneys, and this one was showing typical signs of disrepair.
With the permission of the homeowner, it was constructed of salvaged brick from the neighborhood to give it unique flavor.
