Let the Experts do the Tuckpointing for Your Chimney

After a long winter, many homeowners choose to schedule the annual chimney inspection in the spring. Scheduling in the spring means that repairs can be made before burn season returns again in October. It also repairs any winter damage and prevents leaks and water damage from the rainy season. It’s important to hire an expert to do this type of work so that the work is done correctly and safely.

Chimney tuckpointing & repointing in New Boston NHTuckpointing Explained

Tuckpointing repairs cracked, crumbling, and spalling masonry. You might notice visible cracks in your chimney, or there could be a more serious unseen problem. As the masonry deteriorates, you may find pieces of brick and mortar on your roof. In severe cases, pieces may even fall into your yard. This is a hazard to your family as well as a dangerous fire hazard for your home. In order to be repaired and to restore your chimney to full function and safety, you should contact a professional.

In order to repair spalled masonry, a chimney professional will remove the damaged portion brick-by-brick, then replace it with new mortar. The new mortar must be consistent with the old in strength, texture, and color. Mixing the mortar differently can actually weaken the masonry instead of strengthening and repairing it.

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.

After a recent sweep of our chimney, it was discovered that our flue tiles were cracked. Black Moose techs were hard working, detail oriented and professional! Nice jobs guys! See you next year for my cleaning!

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)
