We Do Masonry Repairs!

Chimney waterproofing & Chimney Leak repair in Concord NHAt Black Moose Chimney & Stove, we’ve been servicing appliances in New Hampshire and providing masonry services for years. We’re proud to offer exceptional professional services. However, repairing masonry problems immediately after you discover it is the best way to avoid danger, damage, and unnecessary costs.

Common Masonry Damage

You may think you have a well-constructed chimney, but damage can still occur, especially during the winter months. A small crack or gap in the spring or summer can become a large void and hazard at the end of the winter season. This is due to the freeze/thaw cycle that happens in the winter,  where water fills a small crack or gap, then freezes when temperatures drop. As it freezes, the water expands and breaks apart the masonry. When the chimney warms, the ice thaws and the water moves deeper into the damaged spaces. This process repeats throughout the winter until damage is addressed and repaired.

Spalling is masonry damage to address immediately. When the brick and mortar cracks and crumbles, it can eventually falling out completely if not fixed. Spalling is dangerous because mortar and bricks may fall from the chimney and roof. It can also cause a drop in efficiency, raise fire risk, and lead to winter damage. Another masonry issues is stains. As you use your fireplace more this season, you may notice staining and discoloration on your masonry. This can be caused by the wood you’re burning, the way your system is drafting, and water damage.

Black Moose Masonry Repairs

At Black Moose, we repair masonry year-round. Our technicians are expert masons, and they have lots of experience with all stonework, designs, and structures. Whether the masonry repairs are major or minor, we can get the job done efficiently, beautifully, and in a timely manner. Whether it’s tuckpointing, parging, or crown repairs or rebuilds, we are here to help! For tuckpointing, we remove damaged mortar and replace it with new mortar of equal color, consistency, and strength. Through tuckpointing, we can restore your chimney without changing the appearance at all.

When the smoke chamber becomes corbelled or cracked, the airflow can slow, this drops the efficiency of your system and raises fire risk. A smoke chamber parge can bring your system up to code and help your fire to burn more efficiently. Don’t let a damaged crown ruin your fire this winter. A cracked or damaged crown can allow water to penetrate the system. Our masons can repair a chimney crown, or rebuild it completely. Whether your chimney has serious structural damage or if want to construct a new system completely, we can help.

A general contractor is not able to build a chimney like a certified chimney professional. We only build chimneys according to federal fire codes and chimney and fire science. Call Black Moose at 603-525-7905 for all your masonry needs this winter.

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)
