Chimney Repairs Dartford
Many homeowners will eventually have an issue with their chimneys. That’s why we offer chimney repairs throughout Kent. Sometimes chimney issues are obvious: if you see the chimney leaning, for example, or there are visible cracks.
Other times it might be less obvious. Even if your chimney has been capped or filled in, you may find that you still have issues. If there is damp on the walls and ceilings below the chimney, or you see brown streaking, you may have issues with the flashing, guttering, or even the crown. Signs of rust can indicate water ingress that will later create issues with the flue.
Similarly, if you have a draught coming through your fireplace, you may have an issue with your chimney pot.

Common Chimney Repairs
The chimney cap is the mortar around the chimney pot. Chimneys are often the highest points of the roof, getting a great deal of exposure to water, which can erode the cap and weaken the chimney stack.
Lining the Chimney
If you have a smoking chimney, we may need to line your chimney. The liner creates a safe way for the smoke and carbon monoxide to leave home.
Replacing Chimney Pots
Where your chimney pot is cracked or leaning, we can help replace and set a new chimney pot. Even unused flues need chimney pots to help create ventilation and prevent birds from nesting.
Rebuilding the Chimney
In addition to other chimney repairs, we can also rebuild your chimney. We typically rebuild chimneys when widespread problems and moisture issues have weakened the structure.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why does my chimney look white?
This white staining is called efflorescence. Depending on the level of staining, this can indicate moisture in the masonry, which can create problems, including corrosion of the chimney. The earlier you call us for chimney repair, the easier it will be to fix.
How can I tell if my mortar joints are cracked?
When you look at the mortar between the bricks, it should appear smooth for the most part. You’re looking for cracks and uneven surfaces where water might get in and create weak points in the masonry.
However, if you cannot see the mortar at all and see holes where the mortar should be, this is a sign that your chimney needs to be repointed or replaced. Call us for a quote on chimney repair today.
Why do I see bits of the chimney in the fireplace?
This is called spalling, and it can occur when moisture gets into the masonry. So you may see bits of the brickwork, concrete and stonework peeling or flaking in the fireplace or even your garden. If you see masonry that looks like it’s popping out, it’s time to call us for chimney repair.
What is a chimney cap or a chimney crown?
Chimney caps, also called rain caps, are designed to protect your chimney from weather (like rain and snow) and pests, like birds. This piece of equipment tops the chimney pot and is different from the chimney crown. The crown is a mortar topping which keeps the pot in place.
