Heritage Conservation Brickwork are highly experienced in chimney restoration and repairs. This includes performing surveys on the chimney stack and surrounding roof area. We ensure we retain the character and feel of a property.
The use of correct mortar mixes is very important, as can be evidenced by this pair of chimney stacks we recently worked on near Malvern, Worcestershire.

Chimney Stacks near Malvern
The use of correct mortar mixes is very important, as can be evidenced by this pair of chimney stacks.
These chimney stacks had already been re-built previously, but the mortar used was far too hard, this caused water to be trapped within the bricks, causing the faces to shale away in harsh conditions. (1st photo).
They were taken down, and re-built using a more appropriate mortar mix.
This lack of knowledge by whoever re-built the chimneys previously, obviously cost the owners of the property a great deal of money, as the bricks failed in pretty short order, so they finished up paying twice for the same job.
