Masonry Repair & Design Projects

Table of Contents

Masonry is both a trade and an art. It involves more than just adhering block together using mortar: masonry is a mix of smart design, color matching, materials science, and the ability to repair bonded structures already in place. At Priddy Chimney, we firmly believe masonry is the one trade that mixes physics and sculpture, strength and design.

We have deep experience with clay brick, concrete block, and stone structures. Our repair expertise includes repointing (also known as “tuckpointing”) of deteriorated mortar joints, removal and replacement of cracked or distressed (sometimes called “spalling”) brick, as well as shelf angle and lintel replacement/restoration. We have done this for both historic and contemporary properties.

If it involves brick, block, or mortar, chances are we have project experience. Call us with your issues and let’s chat about the right masonry solution for you.

Masonry Repair Washington DC

When bricks freeze and thaw with the Washington area’s frequent seasonal temperature changes, they spall and crack. These compromised areas in turn leave your fireplace and appliance flues vulnerable to water intrusion and structural damage.
Signs commonly associated with damaged masonry:
  • Cracks, gaps, and holes in the mortar joints between the brick.
  • Cracked, popping, or spalling brick
  • Discolored brick (whitish covering, moss growth and or dark stains)
  • Leaning or a chimney separating from the wall
If you notice any of the above signs, call us to have your chimney evaluated and repaired. Our master masons can quickly diagnose the most efficient manner in which to restore your chimney.

Today, Priddy Clean Chimney Services came to do a chimney cleaning. In 2011, they installed a stainless steel liner in our chimney and we hadn't a cleaning since then. They showed up on time and did a great job. The chimney liner didn't have much of a build-up and there was no creosote. The found a piece of flashing around the chimney basethat had come loose on the roof, secured and sealed it for no additional charge. Andrey was the primary person I spoke with and was very knowledgeable. I couldn't be be more with this kind of service.

Highly recommend. The lady I originally spoke to when setting the appointment (Hind) called me afterwards to check on why the inspector and I weren’t able to connect. After explaining the situation she offered to send someone out later in the day to make it right, something I am VERY appreciative of. The team came and were very efficient in getting the flue clean and did a great job with the video inspection making sure to take pictures and show me what was going on inside the flue. Afterwards, Hind called to check up on how it went. Everyone is very polite and knowledgeable, and I really appreciated their customer service. I might end up getting potential repairs done through them as well!

Priddy Clean did a great job relining our fireplace. They were on time, very polite, took extra care coming in and out of the house, worked tirelessly all day long and cleaned up before they left. Great to work with and would definitely recommend - price was good as well.

Very efficient, dog (and kid) friendly, even took the time to walk me thru their disassembly and cleaning (particularly the firebox blower unit, which had accumulated a lot of dust and dog hair). Swift, thorough, even educational!
