Applying Tamoseal to a crown and Tuck pointing a chimney

We were recently on another tuck-point job in Willamette county and during this one, we tuck-pointed this chimney and applied Tamoseal to its crown.

This photo was taken while preparing to tuck-point the chimney and apply tamoseal to the crown.

This is the chimney prior to the repair which was taken during the inspection.


One of our masons is preparing to grind out deteriorated mortar joints in this chimney

In the before photos above you can see evidence of deterioration in many of the mortar joints. You can also see cosmetic stains on the brick and the flashing. This staining came from a raincap that was not made of stainless steel and had thus rusted over time. In the video below we explain the tuck-pointing and tamosealing process.
