With two chimneys leaking this customer didn’t hesitate to give Bone Dry Masonry a call to fix this issue. We sent out our excellent sales representative Nathan out to take a look. He suggested a water test to figure out exactly where these leaks were coming from, the chimney or the roof. After moving forward with the water test Nathan and Alec were able to pinpoint right where the leaks were coming from. On chimney number one, the leak was coming from the crown; on chimney number two, the flashing and a couple joints were causing the issue, the pipe as well was corroded. Nathan suggested to this customer, for chimney number one; to demo 9 bricks x 5 courses and rebuild 9 bricks x 5 courses with a step out corbel (45 brick), wrap a 9x13 flue tile with expansion joints and install 9x13 flue tile with stainless steel rain cap, pour a new concrete crown and drip edge, grind out and tuck point 25 joints and reseal flashing and replace three shingles. For chimney number two, a tear down and replace with a “B” Vent was suggested for this utility chiney. Bone dry tore down this chimney, replaced decking, install ice and water shield and shingles, demo all masonry to the roofline frame opening with 2x4 framing, decking, ice and water shield, 3”x3’ double wall “B” Vent, storm collar and rain cap, and also installed an aluminum liner kit to the water heater in the basement.
This customer had severe water damage inside home from around both chimneys. As our salesman inspected around the chimney he quickly noticed both chimney step flashing was not married to the masonry. This was causing water to seep in between the masonry and flashing and drip down into home during heavy rain. There was also some rotting with the wood decking near the chimney, which was detected by roof caving in a small amount when pressure was applied. The masonry would progressively worsen if the flashing was not replaced. Our production came in and ripped the old flashing up and immediately confirmed the rotten wood decking on the north side chimney . The decking was replaced and new ice and water shield was laid to cover the crack in between the roof and our masonry. The step flashing was then placed over the ice and water shield for another layer of protection. Production finished with laying counter flashing and shingles along the side of the chimney. The multiple layers of flashing we install on chimneys guarantee protection from water seeping into the masonry and into the home.
This customer was noticing several water spots on the interior of her ceiling on the second floor. The wood trim on the chimney was rotting causing the major leak. The cement board was starting to crumble as well. We did a complete tear down and rebuild. With all new trim and cement board this chimney looked great!

We also did a few small repairs to the chimney as well. We tuck pointed 200 joints around the chimney above the roofline, and also had to relay approximately ix bricks on the corner of the chimney.

We sent out our excellent sales representative Alec to examine the problem. He determined, since the chimney was nonfunctional, the best solution was to tear down the chimney to the roofline, install necessary decking, and necessary shingling. We also provided a chimney sweep for the functioning chimney that had a fireplace exhausting through it. The projects’ duration took less than a day to complete in full.

They chose to go with option number two, the sided chimney. We then removed all of the stone down to the ground, we then checked to make sure the framing and plywood were in good condition. Once this customer picked a paint color we painted the siding and stained the trim and it was ready to start going up. We put a new stainless steel chimney cap, rain cap and storm collar on. Now onto the flashing, water shield and new shingles around the top of the chimney. This chimney now has a new facelift, and the customers couldn’t be more happy with how it turned out.
