Chimney repair and chimney brick restoration using tuckpointing and other grout fixing methods is incredibly important in the Minnesota climate. Because the Minnesota freeze and thaw cycle is so aggressive, and we have so much moisture, any damage to the concrete, brick, or grout on your chimney crown or chimney brick, means that water can leak in and cause damage very quickly.
When we repair a chimney, we make sure that it's done correctly the first time. Your chimney crown, chimney cap and the brick on your chimney might be cracked, or falling apart, and it's very important that a comprehensive approach is taken to complete the repair.

Chimney Roof Health
One major problem that people will start having is that a chimney that is cracked or the brick is coming apart, you might start having problems with water leaking behind the flashing between the roof and the chimney. When the grout requires Tuckpointing, or the overall chimney brick is starting to come apart, water can trickle down those cracks and start getting in between the flashing, particularly if the home is older and isn't up to the higher standards that we have today.
When Water starts to leak behind flashing, you will start to have leaks in your roof and you might have water coming through. This is incredibly important to take care of because it can wreck your entire roof and cause major damage, leading to black mold, or other water problems.
