Chimney Repair & Masonry Construction
The Mad Hatter is a chimney service company with a focus on repairing, restoring, correcting, and building chimneys. With over 45 years of experience, we are the best choice for chimney repair in Atlanta, Georgia and the Southeastern United States. Our services are available for residential and commercial chimneys of all sizes.
A damaged chimney should be repaired quickly, so the damage does not have time to travel to other areas of the home, such as your fireplace. Whether it’s waterproofing, sealing masonry joints, tuckpointing, or a complete rebuild, we can help identify the issues and make repairs that last.
If a chimney rebuild is necessary, we will look over your options to see if you need a partial or complete rebuild. You can rest assured knowing that your project will be handled by a team of experts who will only sell you the services you need.
We Rebuild Fireplaces and Crowns
Water damage resulting from a missing chimney cap is all too common. We remedy this situation by reconstructing the back walls of fireplaces and returning them to their original pristine condition.
Improperly built chimney crowns are another common problem we see. If yours is cracked or poorly constructed – allowing water penetration or posing a fire hazard – we’ll build a new concrete chimney crown.
How To Tell If Your Chimney Needs Repairing?
Chimney damage is not always visible from the outside. When our technicians come to your home or apartment community for your annual chimney inspection, they will look for damage inside and outside of the chimney. Having your chimney regularly inspected is a good way to ensure any necessary repairs are performed before the damage spreads and gets too severe.
Here are some signs that your chimney needs repairing.
- Damage to brick and mortar on the chimney. This includes crumbling brick or loose masonry falling off the chimney.
- Cracked, decaying, or missing mortar joints.
- Excess moisture on the inside walls of your home near the chimney. Look for damaged paint or wallpaper on the ceiling and walls in the room with your chimney.
- Debris that has fallen into the chimney and fireplace can decay and is a fire hazard. This could also indicate an issue with your chimney cap or rain pan.
- Cracks on the top or side of the chimney
- Rust forming in the fireplace. This shows that a leak is present.
- Excessive amounts of creosote or creosote on the outside of the chimney.
