A tree was growing out of one of the chimney stacks. One of the clay stacks was broken and laying on the roof. From the ground I could see that tuck pointing was needed, so I decided to have a roof/chimney company come out and take a look, Shepard Roofing and Home Improvement. I decided to trust that the urgency for repair he shared was legit, so I moved forward with allowing him (and his nephew) do the work. It took 3 days, but the final product looks amazing. Definitely a noticeable difference. He also said that from what he could see the flute looks sounds all the way down, so there is a chance I could have a functional fireplace. That would be awesome, so before next winter I’ll have a chimney sweep company come out the give an official opinion.
