Chimney rebuilds

When masonry or mortar deteriorates due to long-term exposure to the elements or sudden events, some or all of the structure can be rebuilt with new brick and mortar. Minnesota Chimney offers the following chimney rebuild options:

  • Full rebuild from the ground up
  • Roofline rebuild
  • Partial rebuild, from one to several courses

Chimney liners

When the clay flue tiles that come standard with new chimneys show signs of wear, including cracks and missing mortar, the most efficient and reliable solution is to install an insulated stainless steel chimney liner.

Fireplace liner installation also includes parging of the smoke chamber, to secure the liner in place, and installation of a top-mounted damper.

Installation of a poured-concrete chimney crown.

Chimney crowns

The chimney crown, sometimes referred to as a wash, is typically made of concrete, reinforced with rebar and wire mesh. It covers the top of the chimney and overhangs the edge to facilitate the shedding of water. The crown is built around the top flue tile, which features expansion joints to prevent cracking during the contraction/expansion of the freeze/thaw cycle.
