Masonry

Be it brick, stone, stucco or Dryvit (EIFS), the masonry exterior maintains the security and watertight integrity of your building. When these systems fail, you need a company that can diagnose the problem and implement the necessary repairs. Common issues include brick and stone repointing, coping restoration, Dryvit (EIFS) repair, sealing, pressure washing and cleaning. As a chimney repair company with our own dedicated Masonry Department, we are confident that we can resolve your problems.

Chimney Repair & Repointing

Masonry chimneys are typically constructed of brick, concrete blocks, or stone. Freezing and thawing cycles can cause the masonry walls of your chimney to degrade over time. The mortar joints between the stone or bricks may begin to flake, wash out or crack. Sometimes a chimney which was built to vent one type of furnace or fireplace may have been connected to new one. Differences between the new and old system can result in increased condensation and deterioration of your chimney's inner walls. Problems with your chimney can result in poisonous gases leaking back into your home or building and chimney repair should be tended to quickly.

Repointing of the mortar joints and other chimney repair techniques can be used to repair damage. As a chimney repair company, Alan Kunsman Roofing's trained, certified, expert masons can diagnose your problem, provide you with a detailed estimate, and fix your problem. Contact us today.

Stainless Steel Liners

Your chimney is designed to draw smoke and gases (like carbon monoxide) out of your home or building through tubes or “flues” inside its walls. These flues are typically lined with clay or terra cotta and are attached to your furnace, fireplace, wood stove, or other heating system. Each system may or may not have its own flue.

Over time, these liners degrade naturally and need to be replaced. The installation of a new heating system may also require a new flue liner. Stainless steel liners are a cost effective, durable flue liner replacement.

Chimney liner installation should be performed by a professional, as any mistakes in the process can potentially lead to a fire. As a chimney repair company, you can trust the experts at Alan Kunsman Roofing for a safe, professional chimney liner installation from start to finish.

Rebuilding

Masonry chimneys are typically constructed of brick, concrete blocks, or stone. Freezing and thawing cycles, along with other factors, can cause the walls of your chimney to degrade over time. The mortar joints between the stone or bricks may begin to flake, wash out or crack. The stone, brick, or blocks may also become cracked or degraded. In cases where the chimney is damaged beyond repair, rebuilding the chimney may be necessary.

As a chimney repair company, our masonry experts have many years of experience diagnosing, repairing, and rebuilding chimneys. For a no obligation diagnosis, consultation and estimate for your chimney, contact us today.

Restoration

Due to the age and historical nature of many homes and buildings in the Lehigh Valley, masonry restoration and maintenance are often necessary. Visible problems such as brick or stone loss and deterioration as well as interior water damage can be caused by multiple issues. In these cases, expert masonry, roofing, and carpentry skills are required to properly restore and waterproof your home or building. Fortunately, our teams of experienced tradesmen have the combined skills to provide you with a one source solution for your restoration project. For a no obligation consultation and estimate, contact us today.

Waterproofing

Water infiltration into the interior of your home or building is often detected by the presence of water, stained ceilings, or an unpleasant odor. Beyond the visible signs, a multitude of problems can occur. Deteriorated wood, plaster or drywall provide an excellent medium for the growth of mold and mildew. If detected early enough, the easiest, most cost effective resolution is the proper selection and application of a waterproof coating and sealant. Accurately detecting the source of any leak can be very difficult, but is critical to solving the problem. Our professional waterproofing experts can perform water tests, infrared scans, moisture probing and use other techniques to find and solve your leak.
