Tuckpointing and Brick Replacement in Minneapolis MN

Repointing and Brick Repair

The mortar joints between your chimney bricks deteriorate over time. This deterioration eventually allows water to seep inside, potentially damaging the structure. When damage is minimal, our masons can repoint the joints. We remove old, damaged mortar and replace it with high-quality, weather-resistant material during this process. Our masonry experts can also repair cracked, damaged, and even missing bricks to restore your chimney's structural integrity.

Firebox Rebuilding

The firebox is the heart of your fireplace. And it can deteriorate over time due to its extreme heat. This deterioration can accelerate from water leaks, corrosion, and neglect. When rebuilding the firebox, it is essential to use firebrick and refractory mortar to prevent the intense heat inside the fireplace from spreading to combustible materials within the walls.

Chimney Flue Liners

The flue liner is vital to your chimney system, channeling smoke and harmful pollutants away from your home. Twin City Fireplace can inspect your flue liner and provide the following:

  • Repair: Existing flue liners can crack or deteriorate due to age, fire, water leaks, and neglect. We can often repair minor damage to an existing terra cotta liner and recommend relining if necessary.
