Downtown Hamilton, house built 1912, double brick.
Previous owner made this single home dwelling into a duplex and put in a second door and transome which we would like bricked up. The door is standard size and the transome above is about 32" X 26".
Previous "repairs" of brick on house indicate that improper mixture of mortar used - we are concerned about getting someone who has experience with houses and brickwork of this era and the custom mortar mixture used.
We have about 1/3 to 1/2 of the brick required, salvaged from the previous owners' project - but obviously only a knowledgeable masoner would know how much is usable for the current project.
We would like are chimney repaired.
We would like to know if it is possible to put mesh on all 4 corners and then put parchment over top with out having to remove all the brick and just repair the corners where the damage is.
This is a 3 storie house age of house is in the 1940s and not looking to brake the bank ! just would like it parched.
Thanks for your time
I'm looking for an estimate on some chimney work I need done. It's an older (about 100 years old), brick, two story house with two chimneys that i believe need to be repointed. One of the chimneys was connected to a blocked off fireplace, and the other I believe is currently connected to the furnace system.
Hey, we need to have our chimney re-pointed as there is quite a bit of mortar missing. A lot of the damage seems to be from the water when a fire was put out next door a year ago. We also are installing a new oven hood, but need a vent to be put through the brick wall in the kitchen as there is no external venting in the kitchen.
I have an existing flagstone walkway that was not installed properly from beginning.
Before I can erect a fence between the two properties I have to get this walkway fixed.
It is "L" shaped - 20 x 10 and 20 x 6 approximately.
It is presently sitting on a bed of sand & dirt - no gravel.
It was never installed properly from the beginning.
There is an existing retaining wall between the two properties but need to extend it a couple of feet beyond.
There is also a fence next to this retaining wall that is in good condition (installed 12 years ago).
I would like gravel (about 6"), a bed of concrete, then flagstone, then cement the joints (keep joints narrow).
Not sure if wire needed or if screening needed or if weeping tile needed also.
You will need some extra large pieces of flagstone & I also have several smaller pieces of flagstone stored under the back porch.
May need some type of support retaining wall on side facing flower bed/main garden adjacent to existing retaining wall.
The weight of the soil is causing the existing fence to shift into my neighbors yard. Presently has a wood fence across back but will be removed & installing an iron fence (aesthetically more pleasing).
I also have two other smaller areas that need the flagstone either redone or added - down by back gate leading into park & by entrance off concrete patio leading into main yard (grass won't grow here) - half moon shape pad needed.
South west corner wall of house - about 8 rows of break on the corner where the faces broke off due to water freezing needs fixing.
Had energy audit done & found existing fireplace leaking air severely.
Not sure where it is coming from.
Had chimney removed in 2000 due to leak that no one seemed to know where the water was coming in.
Once chimney removed the water stopped.
Had entire outside wall resided as well as roof but not sure how they sealed up the roof.
In the winter the family room is quite cold cause of the air coming in through the top of the mantle & the front side seams where the gas fireplace meets the fireplace brick facing into room.
The fireplace juts into room about 8" & the outside brick wall juts outside about 10".
I also had the entire inside wall re-insulated & new metal studs as well as new drywall.
They never insulated around the gas insert or the inside brick wall.
I had someone put some green insulation down through the top of the mantle which did help lessen the air leak but there is still quite a bit of air coming from the top of the fireplace.
I need to find out where air is coming in & get it sealed off before I can complete the energy audit.
Please let me know when you are available to drop by.
