Feazel has been an industry leader in roofing and home repair for 30 years, and that includes chimneys. Our office has been repairing all chimney issues since 1988 and in 2017 alone Feazel replaced over 2,000 chimneys. We’re proud to take our chimney experience and expertise to Indianapolis.
Because so much of the masonry is exposed, chimneys are particularly vulnerable to environmental elements. The wind and storms common in Central Indiana, as well as normal wear and tear, cause cracking or lifting of sealant around the chimney, increasing the likelihood of leaks, structural damage and mold damage to your home. Feazel’s Indianapolis masonry experts can fix your problem – from preventative maintenance to chimney crown repair to proper chimney flashing and overall rebuilds.
Proper chimney care is about more than repairs, it’s about maintenance. Even if your chimney does not need repaired, it could need water repellent. All new and existing masonry chimneys are susceptible to water damage and proper maintenance can protect against it. Our Central Indiana masonry experts use ChimneySaver water repellents. These products have been proven to reduce water penetration into masonry by 99.9%, according to independent testing, which is why it has been the first choice of chimney professionals for nearly 20 years. ChimneySaver is also 100% vapor permeable, meaning it won’t trap water vapor.
Contact Feazel Indianapolis today to take advantage of the 10-year warranty that comes with our ChimneySaver water repellents.
Chimney crowns are masonry roofs that cover the top of your chimney and are intended to prevent moisture from seeping into and damaging the masonry below. Damaged or cracked crowns can result in costly repairs. A chimney evaluation from Feazel’s Indiana professionals will ensure that we catch any chimney crown problems early.
Feazel uses a flex crown solution in repairs that forms a flexible waterproof membrane to properly protect your chimney crowns. This solution dries in about 6 hours and cures in about 24 hours to a natural mortar or concrete appearance. Feazel’s flex crown solution comes with a 10-year manufacturer’s warranty.
Leaks caused by chimney flashing — the protective covering of the chimney’s joints and angles – are incredibly common. When flashing a chimney many contractors use shortcuts, such as nailing or “pinning” metal flashing to the mortar and sealing with caulk. This improper method is likely to pop loose after just a few years of environmental exposure. Feazel never takes these shortcuts.
Our Central Indiana craftsmen deliver the utmost attention to detail. We use the “Grind and Tuck” technique, one in which we grind the mortar joints, bend the metal along the top of the flashing and tuck it back into the mortar joints. The mortar caulk is then pinned back into the joint, causing a permanent watertight seal that will perform maintenance-free for many years.
