MCG specializes in masonry and tuckpointing rebuilds and repairs. From extreme temperatures to heavy rain and snow, even the toughest-built chimney can deteriorate over time. A settling foundation can also affect your chimney, causing ugly cracks and serious structural problems.

Tuckpointing involves scraping out the damaged mortar and replacing it with new mortar to restore the original condition of your chimney. If you are noticing your chimney’s mortar is cracking or deteriorating, tuckpointing can help prevent further damage. MCG is able to help you with any and all chimney and tuckpointing needs.

Chimney Concrete Crowns
Your chimney crown is very important, it acts as a roof to your chimney structure, protecting the flue and top of the chimney against deterioration or damage from weather. If there are cracks or voids in your chimney crown, this can allow water to seep inside the bricks and mortar of your chimney, causing expensive damage over time.
