Why Stucco on a Chimney Deteriorates

Stucco deterioration on a masonry chimney is usually caused by water getting into the structure through a crack in the crown or improper flashing. .

This water is then absorbed into the masonry and soaks up behind the stucco, then a little frost just pops the layers apart. After a few seasons this becomes visual and the stucco is blamed as poor quality or something when the hidden culprit is actually the cracked cap.

Stucco chimney repair usually consists of removing any loose materials, repairing underlying spalled brick and reapplying matching stucco.

We then add a crown flashing with a drip edge and some rain caps to stop future water from entering and destroying the chimney again.

We then apply an Elastomeric Coating to seal off the chimney face and make everything the same color.

 We also use various methods of epoxy injection repairs when required or suitable. These can save a lot of money as compared to replacing expensive concrete caps or crowns..
