We recently completed two chimney restorations with a historical look. Three chimneys on one house and two chimneys on a second house .
In the first case, the homeowner provided a photo from the early 1900’s and asked us to replicate as closely as possible. It was a challenging project, first to try to interpret from a grainy photo and then re-create a chimney which would have the right appearance and as well, have the structural integrity to last for many years. I believe that we were successful.
The second restoration was on a much newer home. The chimneys were originally built with a stepped out, stepped back in corbelling at the top. We modified the design by only stepping out the corbelling, then installing a concrete drip cap and crown for long-term durability.
