Expert Masonry and Chimney Repair for Michigan Homes

No matter how well you maintain your home’s chimney, wear-and-tear from Michigan’s harsh weather conditions will eventually cause moisture damages that will need to be repaired. From rebuilds to tuckpointing, Weather Vane Roofing provides expert masonry and chimney repair for Michigan homes. The mortar inside your chimney’s bricks usually needs to be replaced every 25 years or so. Tuckpointing is a repair technique used to replace damaged mortar with new mortar.

Benefits of Tuckpointing vs. Rebuilding

When you call us, we’ll assess your chimney and honestly tell you whether or not it can be repaired using tuckpointing or whether or not you’ll need to rebuild the entire thing.

Benefits of tuckpointing include:

Prevents Moisture Leaks

Failure to repair your chimney’s mortar joints can result in unwanted water seeping down your chimney. This can result in mold, mildew, and rotting wood if left ignored. You may also see signs of this on your ceiling or walls around the chimney – look for noticeable water stains.

Structural Stability

Failure to repair your chimney’s mortar joints could eventually cause your chimney to lean or completely collapse.

Prolonged Lifespan

Tuckpointing stops the corrosion of your chimney’s mortar joints, restoring your masonry materials to their original condition.


It’s usually more cost-effective to restore your chimney’s mortar joints than it is to tear down your chimney and completely rebuild it.

Metal Chimney Caps Keep Out Pests and Moisture

Besides your mortar joints, another critical feature of your chimney is its metal chimney cap. Your metal chimney cap is the thing that keeps unwanted animals from entering your home through the chimney. It also helps keep out moisture from rain, snow, and ice, as well as helps to prevent fire embers from causing a chimney fire or damage to your roof. If it’s time for a chimney repair in Michigan, we specialize in both galvanized steel and painted steel metal chimney caps.

Galvanized Steel

We’ll custom-form a new galvanized chimney cap with a full two-inch collar soldiered around each opening.

Painted Steel

We’ll custom-form a new galvanized chimney cap with a full two-inch collar soldiered around each opening.
