Need Top to Bottom Chimney Repairs in the Dallas – Fort Worth, Tx Area? The Black Velvet Chimney Team Is Here to Help

Trust Our Experts With Your Chimney

Black Velvet Chimney’s team of specialized, expertly trained, and certified professionals can help you keep your chimney in excellent condition and looking beautiful, year after year. Our chimney repairs have you covered, from top to bottom:

  • Brick chimney repair. As strong as brick and mortar are, holes, cracks, and other damage can leave your brick chimney unsafe and looking rough — but we can help. Whether you need brick replaced or mortar joints tuckpointed, our team of experienced professionals can get the job done fast so you’re left with a stronger, more beautiful brick chimney.
  • Wood chase repair. Just as brick chimneys can become damaged by moisture, weather, and time, wood chimney chases are susceptible to rot and other deterioration. If your wood chase has seen better days, let Black Velvet repair or rebuild it for a fresh, new look that you’ll love.
  • Fireplace repairs/renovation. Whether you’re tired of the look of your fireplace and want to give it a whole new look or you dream of restoring your fireplace to its former glory, the team at Black Velvet Chimney can help. We specialize in masonry and stone work and can even install a new mantel or stove, insert, or factory-built fireplace. Bring your vision to life with the skilled team at Black Velvet.
  • Leaky chimney repair. Chimney leaks are a leading cause of chimney and fireplace deterioration and can quickly cause costly damage. But whether your leak started with the crown, the flashing, or the masonry, you can count on our team to make the needed repairs and help you keep water out for good.
  • Chimney relining. Without a chimney liner, having a fire in your home would be unsafe, unhealthy, and unenjoyable — but a damaged chimney liner can make the fireside experience all of those things as well. If your flue liner is damaged, missing, or in need of resurfacing, let us help. We rely on HeatShield® and stainless steel liners so our customers don’t have to give the liner another thought.

What Are the Signs That My Chimney Needs Repair?

When something goes wrong with your fireplace or chimney, it’s not always apparent. A lot of problems unfold beneath the surface, but some issues can be recognized by a few key red flags:

  • Your fireplace smells musty. A musty odor could be a sign that the chimney flue is blocked or that there’s a leak in the system that is causing mold or mildew to grow.
  • There are water stains on the chimney or walls. Look for yellow stains or wet patches on the ceiling and walls near your chimney. This could be an indication that water is getting into the chimney system.
  • The damper is rusty. The damper is the metal plate that opens and closes to control airflow in the chimney. Rust on the damper could be a sign that there is moisture present in the chimney system.
  • There are cracks in the chimney crown. The crown is the top part of the chimney, and it plays a vital role in diverting water away from the structure. Cracks can allow water to be absorbed by the brick in the chimney, which can lead to bigger problems down the line.
  • The mortar joints are deteriorating. The mortar joints are the spaces between the bricks in your chimney. Over time, they can deteriorate and crack. This can allow water to seep into the chimney and also weaken the overall structure.
  • Spalling or crumbling bricks. Brick is naturally absorbent. If your chimney hasn’t been waterproofed, it will take on moisture which can lead to spalling – when the surface of the bricks starts to flake or chip away.
  • The flashing is missing or damaged. Flashing is the metal that seals the space where the chimney meets and the roof. If it’s damaged or has been blown off during a storm, water can pool in this vulnerable area and leak into the roof and attic.
