Why Heritage Air Duct Cleaning & Chimeny Sweeps
The Leading Chimney Repair Company in Missouri
All chimneys need periodic maintenance to function properly and effectively. Several chimney problems are difficult to recognize. Some of the common chimney problems include cracks in the back wall of the firebox or wind damage to the flue.
It can be difficult for a typical homeowner to recognize that their chimney needs repair until it has become extensive enough to affect other structures or the fireplace starts to leak when it rains. Moreover, a damaged chimney is a safety hazard, increasing the risk of a chimney fire.

Common Chimney Repairs
Our professionals have the experience and training to perform any chimney repair, including masonry repairs, flue liner repairs and replacement, chimney crown repairs, and more. If you think there is a problem with your chimney, call us and we will conduct a thorough inspection and recommend the best solution for your chimney.
Below are some of the common chimney repairs we handle at Heritage Air Duct Cleaning & Chimney Sweeps.
Chimney Masonry Repairs
The brick and mortar that make up the outside of your chimney play a vital role in protecting your home and family. Over time, the mortar will start to break down due to exposure to moisture and the elements. If it starts to soften and flake out of the wall, this places a lot of pressure on bricks and eventually leads to spalling, or bricks falling out of place.
The best time to repair chimney masonry is when mortar issues the first surface using a process known as tuckpointing. It involves removing damaged portions of mortar and replacing them with a well-matched mortar in terms of color and strength. It will make your chimney look new while restoring its original strength.
If the damage has extended to the bricks, there are still repairs that can address the issue without replacing the entire structure. You can replace or turn around the bricks so that the backside of the brick faces forward, and the damaged side faces the interior of the structure where no one can see it.
Cracked or Damaged Flue Repairs
The chimney flue or liner contains gases, heat, and creosote produced by your fireplace. When you look at the inner lining of your chimney, it can reveal hidden dangers that increase the risk of a chimney fire or carbon monoxide if left untreated.
There are several types of flue liners. Therefore, several issues can arise with each one. Steel liners tend to be the most durable, while other types of flues are more susceptible to heat and stress.
Generally, the flue either deteriorates, cracks, or spalls. We highly recommend having your chimney inspected at least once a year, before winter, to ensure it is in proper working condition.
If your flue is damaged or cracked, avoid using the chimney. Even small cracks can allow heat into combustible portions of your home, which can lead to a chimney fire.
Chimney Cap or Crown Replacement
The chimney cap and crown can be found at the very top of your chimney. It serves as the first line of defense against the weather elements. It keeps water from pouring in, animals from nesting at the peak of your chimney, and infiltration of other debris that could clog a chimney.
If either of these vital components is damaged, your chimney is at risk of moisture damage, blockages, and countless other issues that can create additional problems and repairs.
It’s easy to replace or repair a damaged cap or crown. A regular chimney inspection can prevent this small issue from turning into something bigger.
Signs that Your Chimney Needs Repairs
Here are some signs that your chimney needs repairs.
Rusted damper or firebox
If you are having a difficult time operating your damper, check if there is rust on it. A rusted damper or firebox indicates that there has been excess moisture in your chimney. When the root cause of the water problem has already been addressed, you can replace these parts.
Flakes or shards of tile or ceramic in the fireplace
Flakes or shards of tile or ceramic in the hearth are signs that the flue liner is shaling. If the tile or ceramic flue liner starts to flake, it is called shaling.
Continuing to use a chimney with a shaling flue liner can easily result in a house fire since the purpose of a flue liner is to protect the walls, ceiling, floors, and roof of your home. Once you notice this problem, call us to assess the extent of the shaling. Our professionals will inform you whether the flue should be replaced or repaired before you use your fireplace again.
