Lifetime Roofing & Renovation not only covers roof repairs but also addresses issues that arise with brickwork on your home and chimneys. Over time, loose or cracked mortar can occur due to persistent water damage, temperature changes, impact damage and many other factors. Lifetime removes and replaces old crumbled mortar between bricks and stones.
Lifetime will take the time to closely match the current mortar with the new mortar to ensure that your structure maintains its curb appeal while also ensuring structural integrity and decreasing water entry.
Along, with tuckpointing, Lifetime Roofing and Renovation can also install chimney crowns which prevent water from seeping into masonry below. Damaged chimney crowns can lead to costly repairs.
Another method to prevent water from entering your home at the point where your chimney and roof meet is called “grind and tuck” chimney flashing. This method provides a watertight seal around your chimney giving you peace of mind that your roof is safe from leaks.
