    Safety is our concern
    Chimneys are massive structures only as good as the footings they are
    set upon and the mortar joints which hold them together.  Without proper maintenance,
    a chimney can lose it’s structural integrity.  A common
    symptom of an ailing chimney  may be leaks through interior walls.
    This can be caused by faulty flashing.

    A cracked footing generally is a result of a footing that has been poured above the frost
    line.  An experienced mason will not opt For shortcuts in design or craftsmanship.  

    An experienced mason has the knowledge to carefully evaluate your current chimney
    or professionally build you a new chimney. There are many individuals entering the
    field of chimney repair and far fewer masons.  A chimney must be  taken very
    seriously.  An experienced qualified mason takes chimneys very seriously.  
    Inexperienced chimney repairmen are risky. The low price is what lures most
    homeowners into these shortcuts.   Inexperienced Individuals have no place
    tampering with a chimney and it's mortar.  Attempting repairs, while lacking the
    knowledge of chimney design and construction is dangerous and costly.

    RL Sanborn Masonry has 25 years of experience building, restoring and repairing
    chimneys. We pour adequate reinforced footings, build brick chimneys,cut and set
    stone chimneys, install flues, clean outs, crowns (hand built with brick trim not pre
    cast), stone caps, piers and flashing as well as apply quality sealants masonry. We
    leave the job site as we found it.

    It is advisable to apply sealant to new and restored masonry to prevent the infiltration
    of water.

    Water permeates brick and mortar and when it freezes it expands and cracks the
    mortar and brick. This process repeats over time. Sealants last about 5 years and
    should be re applied to maintain the masonry For optimal longevity.

    If the mortar crumbles and the crumbling is consistent in most spots  then it is time For
    a complete restoration.

    If the decay is isolated, some point work and or replacement of brick should be done.

    We would be delighted to offer
    you quality masonry services.

What is masonry?

Masonry is the building of
structures from individual
units laid in and bound
together by mortar. The
common materials of
masonry construction are
brick, stone such as
marble, granite,
travertine, limestone;
concrete block, glass
block, and tile. Masonry is
generally a highly durable
form of construction.
However, the materials
used, the quality of the
mortar and
workmanship, and the
pattern the units are put
in can strongly affect the
durability of the overall
masonry construction
