We Specialize In Chimney & Masonry Repairs!
At Northeastern Masonry & Chimney, masonry repairs and restoration are a specialty and a passion. Our detail-oriented, exacting work has been praised well beyond the Albany area — we were tapped to restore the fireplaces at the Governors’ Mansion in Boston, and for restoration work at the Franklin D. Roosevelt home in Hyde Park, as well as many other historical sites in New York. We’re trusted with those valued pieces of history because we take pains to provide the best masonry work possible — repairs that both blend with the original masonry work and bolster the chimney or fireplace’s strength for years to come.
When you’re in need of chimney and masonry repairs, call Northeastern Masonry & Chimney — our CSIA-certified technicians will bring dedicated, expert workmanship, whether we’re simply repairing a damper or completely rebuilding your chimney.
Some Chimney And Masonry Repair Work Northeastern Masonry & Chimney Can Provide
It’s not uncommon for masonry chimney crowns to crack after years of abuse from the elements. It’s important to have a damaged crown repaired quickly, though, since crown cracks are also one of the more common causes of leaks. For more information on crown repairs, click here.
Repointing, Tuckpointing & Spalling
If the joints on your masonry chimney or fireplace have started to crack or recede, we can bring that masonry back to looking and functioning the way it should with repointing/tuckpointing work. If your masonry has started spalling (flaking, chipping and crumbling), we can help make proper repairs there as well. To find out more, check out Repointing, Tuckpointing & Spalling.

Bricks are resilient, and with proper maintenance, can last a century or more. But water and weather, as well as the natural settling of a home, can take their toll on bricks and mortar joints. It’s important to have experienced professionals repair or rebuild masonry chimneys, because using the wrong materials in the wrong way can make the damage worse, leaving ugly and obvious repairs and damaging the chimney’s structural integrity. Call our experienced technicians for industry-leading, expert masonry work. For more information on the repairs and rebuilds we can do, please click here.
