Chimney Repair & Rebuilds​

At Lancaster Masonry, we bring almost 20 years of expertise to London and its environs, delivering top-notch chimney repair and rebuild services. We understand that a chimney is not just a visual element; it’s a structural cornerstone of your home. Our commitment to quality craftsmanship and customer satisfaction sets us apart.

Why Full Chimney Repair Matters:

One common mistake homeowners make is addressing only the visible issues, neglecting the underlying structural concerns. Repairing only the top of the chimney while leaving the bottom untouched can lead to increased expenses down the line. Our approach involves a thorough assessment, ensuring every part of your chimney receives the attention it deserves.

Beyond Tuckpointing:

Tuckpointing might seem like a quick fix, but it often serves as a mere aesthetic solution. If the exterior is deteriorating, internal masonry work may be in worse shape. We go beyond the surface, delving into structural integrity to prevent future complications.

Protecting the Crown:

The vulnerability of a chimney’s crown is often underestimated. Small cracks, if left untreated, can lead to water infiltration, causing spalling and internal damage. Our experts address these issues comprehensively, safeguarding your chimney against weather-induced deterioration.

The Advantage of Complete Chimney Rebuild:

Investing in a full chimney rebuild pays off in the long run. At Lancaster Masonry, we have developed proprietary methods to enhance chimney durability. Our reconstruction process includes a specially designed mixture that prevents surface cracks, ensuring a longer lifespan for your chimney. Our commitment to structural integrity goes beyond aesthetics.

Excellent work and overall experience while having my chimney replaced.

Stephen Caeser November 7, 2023

Matt came out to my Grand Bend cottage this summer and assessed the damage to my 100 year old stone chimney that I thought was too far gone to repair. Matt came up with a plan and executed just as he said he would.. Price and timeline were just as he quoted and I couldn’t be happier. Very talented and extremely professional. Thanks Matt and crew.

Marco Selapack November 2, 2023

Matt is so skilled! He took a very difficult job on and rebuilt a wall better than it ever looked! Matt has the attention to detail that you want when you are hiring out a job, and his quote was exactly what he invoiced. He has excellent staff and is a pleasure to work with. He is trustworthy and will be used for all future jobs that we need both commercially and residentially. Highly recommend!

Cheryl Richardson October 26, 2023

Matt and his team did an amazing job on our foundation repair. The whole foundation of the house has been reparged and it looks amazing. We would highly recommend Lancaster FBC if you need any work done.

Kirby Seabourne October 20, 2023

Great guy, great team, great job! It's very hard to find people that do this type of stonework that are professional, show up, and charge what they say they will. Matt did an excellent job and was easy to deal with. Will use him for all my masonry work going forward.

Franklin Sheehan September 26, 2023

We hired Lancaster FBC to rebuild out chimney that started falling apart (cracked cap, spalling brick, crumbling mortar). They offered a reasonable price and had amazing reviews, so we hired them. Matt and his team went above and beyond to get the job done and we're very happy with how the result looks. We have a typical Old South roof on a century home: steep slopes and many folds, but that was not a problem for the team as they had the right scaffolding. We're very happy and would hire them again!

Benjamin Glauss September 25, 2023

I have a yellow brick century home and they did a fantastic job fixing my chimney and filling missing mortar joints. They were professional, worked very efficiently and really displayed care for doing a great job

Richard Placzek August 21, 2023

Matt and his crew were professional, hard working, and did excellent work. There were a few curveballs, as there often are with jobs, but we figured them out. My wall looks amazing and I've gotten tons of compliments from my neighbors already. Would work with them again.

Amazing workmanship which as we all know can be tough to find. They did our chimney repair. We are going to get a walk way quote next!😊

Matt and his crew member did a phenomenal parging job on my property. I contacted Matt told him what I needed done and the issues I was having with the parging. He knew right away over the phone on how to resolve the issue based on what I was describing. He is very knowledgeable and his quality of work is outstanding. Matt ensured the property was clean and there was no debris left. Thank you Matt and to your crew member for the amazing work.

Matthew Lancaster restored the point work on my 1912 century home foundation . Wow !! What an incredible job he has done. Matthew has been a true godsent in this restoration of my home. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a skilled and talented Mason. Thank-you once again Matthew!!!!

Sean schraven February 25, 2016

Matt did some work for me on a renovation which I was doing for a customer. A back window was changed into a door and Matt did the required brickwork. I and the customer were very happy with it. Matt's professional, he certainly knows what he is doing. I'll certainly use him again when required. A neighbour of mine had used his company for some brick work at the front of their home and the work there was great also and the customer told me they were satisfied with the work and that the company was there when they said they would be and the cost was what he had said.

Marty Godfrey February 19, 2016

First rate work. On-time and on-budget. Matt took the time to figure out exactly what we wanted and helped us navigate some unforeseen surprises. I now recommend Lancaster to friends and fam, and so far all have been happy customers.
