Since 1985, B.A. Chesley Co. has been synonymous with quality masonry restoration in Duluth, MN. Here is a closer look at what we can do for your home or commercial building:
Here in Duluth, the wind and ice off the lake can easily deteriorate bricks and stones, especially the ones on our beautiful 1920s and 1930s architecture. Fortunately, B.A. Chesley Co. can replace them, grind back the mortar to make it more stable, color the mortar to match exactly and refill the area.
We get complimented on our work all the time, because people often cannot see where we’ve repaired the bricks and mortar, and where the original pieces remain! That’s one of the best compliments we can get, because it means our work looks seamless. We truly pride ourselves on being able to provide a great experience to each customer, and to do clean work where you can’t even tell it was patched.
Our team specializes in replacing, rebuilding, and repairing chimneys, brick fireplaces, stone fireplaces, retaining walls and exterior walls. We have the capacity to work on virtually any masonry and take pride in tackling new and challenging restorations.
We are happy to provide stonework for sandstone and bluestone, and we specialize in houses and fireplaces. Our familiarity with common stonework blemishes and degradation allows us to pinpoint issues and resolve them to the fullest.
Tuckpointing is the process of grinding back the mortar in stone and bricks, cleaning it out and refilling it with new mortar. We can provide tuck pointing in Duluth, MN for both homes and businesses, to preserve the façade and extend the life of the masonry.
We do full chimney rebuilds, and replace chimney caps and chimney liners. We are also able to replace old clay chimney liners with stainless steel or flexible aluminum liners, which are safer and more enduring.
