Have you been noticing signs that indicate your chimney is damaged? You can spot many common symptoms of damaged chimney masonry such as:

  • chimney rebuilding in Sunapee NHWater in the firebox
  • Crumbled bricks and mortar on the roof around the chimney
  • Missing bricks
  • White staining on the chimney’s exterior masonry
  • Mortar joint cracks
  • Strong odors coming from the firebox
  • Chimney is leaning to one side

In all these cases, likely there is some compromise to the chimney structure or its components. How extensive is the damage? Exactly why are the above problems happening? The only way to answer these questions is with a professional chimney inspection, which will find out where the problem exists and determine the best way to solve it.

Chimney Rebuilding

Over years of frigid winters and intense heat from fires, a chimney’s structural integrity can be compromised. If the chimney has begun to lean or if there are large sections of loose or missing bricks, a partial or complete chimney rebuild may be necessary to restore operational soundness and keep you and your family safe.

We perform expert chimney rebuilding services for homeowners throughout south-central New Hampshire. All work is done by trained, CSIA-certified technicians who have the demonstrated skills to safely rebuild your chimney and give it many more years of peak performance. Black Moose is a proud member of the National Chimney Sweep Guild and the Northeast Association of Chimney & Hearth Professionals.

Chimney Brick Repair In Amherst, NH

When smaller sections of your chimney’s masonry are showing signs of wear and tear, we often can address the issue without actually rebuilding the chimney. A process known as tuckpointing can be used to fill in areas of missing bricks and mortar with a strong compound that will stop leaks and hold up well for many years in even the worst weather conditions.

A chimney inspection may turn up only a few cracks in the chimney’s mortar joints. Depending on the depth of the cracks, water may be infiltrating the system and causing interior chimney damage that can’t be seen without specialized video equipment. If the cracks are minor, we can seal them with a waterproof coating. If cracking is extensive, we can determine if more damage exists within the flue or adjacent areas of the home.

Many chimney rebuilding and major masonry repair projects can be avoided if water leaks are addressed and fixed quickly. Water and bricks don’t mix, and over time, water can not only eat away at your chimney structure, it also can cause rotting and mold growth in your home’s building materials.

An even bigger concern with damage caused by leaking chimneys is when decomposition happens inside the flue and opens up the possibility for a house fire. Your chimney liner and the masonry of the chimney are your only defenses to keep intense heat away from vulnerable, combustible areas of the home.

Black Moose Chimney & Stove is here to help with all your chimney repair, chimney rebuilding, masonry repair and leak-prevention needs. Count on our 10+ years’ experience to keep your chimney safe and sound all year long.

I wanted to give 5 stars but they are very busy which meant I had a good wait for both the inspection/cleaning, then for a quote on repairs and then for the repairs. Their prices seemed a little high to me but I have nothing to compare with as they were highly recommended by someone I trust and other companies had plenty of negatives reviews which kept me from getting additional quotes. I am happy with the work and they promptly returned to fix a mistake that had been made. Chris the inspector, Jennifer in the office, and Alex and his repair crew were all pleasant and took the time to answer all of my questions. Alex and his crew even took their shoes off (it was winter) before entering my house without even being asked! So if you are not in a rush and want to ensure you chimney is as safe as possible then I think you'll be happy with Black Moose.

Excellent I highly recommend Black Moose Chimney and Stove; Kelly and Liam are awesome, they did a great job. Extremely professional, arrived early, went through everything with a fine tooth comb ensuring pellet stove was thoroughly cleaned. They also were respectful of my home, conscientious and cleaned up after themselves. Made sure stove worked prior to leaving and told me to call promptly if anything came up afterward. Will definitely use them again.

We've had Black Moose clean our chimney for a number of years.But recently, we had an emergency situation at our home involving our chimney & oil furnace flue, which was caked full of soot from a malfunctioning furnace. They came & cleaned out both flues in no time, even going up on the roof with snow on it! They cleaned up after their work in the interior rooms where the oil furnace and the woodstove are located. Great work. Reasonable prices. Very nice people. You can't go wrong with Black Moose.

Goods: The technicians know their business, very efficient in cleaning/inspection along with cleaning up after the 'dirty work'.Others: Communications could be more effective. Despite early coordination about scope of work (multiple flues within same chimney) the estimate provided did not reflect this and the final invoice was significantly more than the estimate provided.Quote for follow-on chimney relining was significantly more than that offered by other companies in the area (and far more than neighbors experienced for similar work accomplished by other companies)
