Masonry

Tuckpointing

A cracked or broken chimney should be rebuilt per city standards. City standards require the following: Masonry chimneys are required to be designed in accordance with LAMC Section 91.3102.7 and must be either free standing or supported from the attached structure Reconstruction or replacement of a damaged masonry chimney is not allowed with masonry unless completely removed, redesigned and constructed to current code requirements. This will require structural plans and calculations prepared by a civil engineer, structural engineer, or architect licensed by the State of California. These structural plans and calculations must be reviewed prior to permit issuance at the plan check counter of a LADBS Construction Services Center.

Often times, older chimney pieces will start to break away from the structure. The professionals at Chimney Savers Inc can fix this problem quickly and affordably.
