Chimney Repair and Restoration in Melbourne & Mornington Peninsula

Before

After

Chimney’s are often the last space in the home that one would think needs repair or restoration but due to harsh weather conditions, heat and smoke that creates moisture, it doesn’t take much for problems to start adding up.  Or you are just sick of looking at the same old fireplace!

HF Bricklaying are the Chimney Repair experts across Melbourne and Mornington Peninsula.  We’ll start by looking at your chimney at the obligation free quote and give you honest feedback on any issue we may find.  Whether it be the brick itself, mortar or framing.

Common signs we look out for on our visit are: 

White Staining (Efflorescence)  

First sign that the chimney isn’t dealing with the moisture that originates from combustion in the fireplace.  It is often a warning sign that your chimney could be a hazard in the near future and the time to evaluate repair or restoration. 

Damaged Mortar Joints

The easiest to spot, it’s when there’s mortar is cracked or flaking between bricks in your chimney.  This needs to be repaired quickly otherwise it can lead to deeper issues in the structure.

Wall, Paint, Wallpaper Damage

Pressures of a chimney can lead to effects that are external to the chimney itself, most commonly on the walls surrounding the fireplace.  Often it’s another sign that moisture is escaping the chimney and affecting other areas of the property.

There’s various other issues that only a brick & chimney professional can diagnose, that’s why you should call us right away if you haven’t had your Chimney looked at for quite some time.
