Chimney leak repair, along with ceiling repair and enclosure of old stovepipe.
We had a leaking ceiling around our woodstove, with damaged ceiling drywall where the stovepipe went up into the chimney. We got rid of our woodstove this past summer and decided to find someone to repair and close off the ceiling, and leave the remaining chimney pipe up in the chimney stack above the ceiling.
Bryan was able to locate the source of leaks down our chimney into our family room ceiling. He sealed cracks and possible leak areas at the top of the chimney and on the sides of our chimney where it joins the roof of our home.
He then came inside and removed the damaged ceiling drywall, removed the stovepipe joint at ceiling level and was able to secure and leave the remaining chimney pipe in the chimney above the ceiling (for future use if we ever sold this home to someone else).
He then repaired the ceiling drywall and retextured the finish to match the rest of the ceiling, so well that you cannot tell that a stovepipe ever exited the home through there. We have now put an electric fireplace hearth in our chimney alcove where the woodstove once stood. it is absolutely beautiful.
Bryan was able to envision what we wanted, and make it happen at a fair price, and complete the work in one day!
