Bone Dry Masonry Case Studies: Fishers, IN Chimney Rebuild Project

Wednesday, June 21st, 2017 by Toya Hutchison

Challenge

Homeowner contacted Bone Dry Masonry after finding water marks on the inside of their home.  BDM went out and did a thorough inspection of the chimney.  We noticed that the chimney had some previous repairs by the means of caulking to mortar joints.  A water test was then performed.  We started on the shingles for approx 2 min and then moved up on to the counter flashing for an additional 2 mins with no water showing.  Moved up on to the stone approx 1-2 feet above the counter flashing.  After about 3-4 minutes a line of water started running down the interior wall.  We stopped at this point so we did not cause any further damage.

Solution

BDM's inspectors suggested a rebuild of the chimney from the roofline up.  We would professionally install stone and mortar back to original height, along with installing a new stainless steel chimney cap w /drip edge rain cap & storm collar. This will all be giving the homeowner a brand new chimney, but with the same classic look!
