Chimney Repairs in Maryland, Washington, DC and Virginia

At Capital Chimney Service, we offer a variety of chimney repairs to improve your chimney efficiency and performance. Our chimney repair services can help you prevent chimney leaks and water penetration into your home, chimney damage and energy waste. As a member of the esteemed National Chimney Sweep Guild, we are a family owned chimney company and we take pride in our work. We offer the following chimney repairs in Maryland, Washington, DC and Virginia:

Spot cutting Chimney Repairs

Chimney spot cutting is used to repair minor brick damage to your chimney. Spot cutting involves replacing cracked bricks rather than replacing the entire structure.

Rebuilding Chimney Repairs

Rebuilding is reserved for chimneys with severe damage that can’t be repaired with spot cutting. Your chimney could need rebuilding after:

  • Water damage
  • Settling foundation
  • Lightning strike

Masonry Chimney Repairs

Masonry repairs are required to fix cracks and wall deterioration in your chimney. Because your chimney masonry is constantly exposed to wind, snow, ice and rain at the same time it is exposed to hot gases from your fireplace, it constantly expands and contracts—creating cracks and deterioration. Our masonry work fixes cracks in the mortar, waterproofing caps and crowns.

Relining Chimney Repairs

Lining your chimney protects your home and your family from combustion byproducts. Capitol Chimney Service offers flue lining and relining services, along with flue liner repair, removal and replacement services.

Flashing and Re-flashing Chimney Repairs

Chimney leaks frequently occur where the chimney meets the roof shingles. The metal that joins the roof to the chimney is called the flashing. The parts that are on the roof are called the step flashing, back pan and the apron flashing. The metal that goes into or on the chimney is called the counter flashing. If you have water staining on your ceiling near your chimney or even running down the walls, it’s possible that your chimney needs re-flashing. Contact Capitol Chimney Service if you need flashing or re-flashing chimney repairs in Maryland, Washington, DC or Virginia.

Chimney Waterproofing

At Capitol Chimney Service, our waterproofing chimney services protect your chimney from water damage and staining. Your chimney is constantly exposed to outdoor elements, so using a water repellent is vital to prevent more expensive masonry reconstruction and repairs and to keep water out of your house.
