Chimney Design and Repair in San Diego: Custom Masonry and Fireplace Design


Chimney Design and Repair

Chimneys that show evidence of creosote damage, mortar deterioration, and cracks between bricks, are a fire danger.

If the damage is not too severe a new chimney flue liner can be installed, loose mortar repaired, flashing redone, and chimney crown refitted.

As illustrated in the photo on the right, demolition of our project chimney was necessary because of severe deterioration.

The following photos below describe the basics of chimney construction and repair. Enjoy! – Paul Walker

Construction Process – laying the chimney foundation

In California all chimneys require a building permit. They must be built according to stringent building and earthquake codes, and pass inspection.

The foundation or footing must be substantial enough to support the weight of a chimney and fireplace. Steel rebar increases the structural integrety of the foundation.

California building code requires that footings for masonry fireplaces and their chimneys shall be constructed of concrete or solid masonry at least 12 inches thick and shall extend at least 6 inches beyond the face of the fireplace or foundation wall on all sides. Footings shall be founded on natural undisturbed earth or engineered fill below frost depth. In areas not subjected to freezing, footings shall be at least 12 inches below finished grade.

Chimney block with steel rebar – Building a safe chimney

The California building code requires us to build your chimney using fireproof masonry materials and steel.

The chimney is anchored to the footing with the steel rebar embeded in concrete. We then build the chimney upward block by block, row by row, using more pencil rebar in the process.

All chimneys at minimum must have existing vertical #4 rebar, � stirrups installed, rebar cells fully grouted, a chimney flue liner installed and be properly grouted.

Basement Flooding #basement #flooding, #basement #flood #cleanup, #water #damage #restoration


How to Clean Up (and Forget the Nightmare) of Basement Flooding

Act fast to reduce repair costs. The longer your basement sits in water, the more it’s going to cost to clean up.

You can clean up some of the icky mess yourself to save money, but a pro is much nicer on your back (and your nose).

Just because you have home insurance doesn’t mean you’re covered. Best to check before a flood happens.

Rain, rain, go away. And sewage backups. And burst pipes. All y’all can GO. AWAY. Especially if they turn your wet bar into a soakingwet bar and your ping-pong table into an island.

Every homeowner with a basement imagines that horror. If it should happen to you, don’t retreat into a fetal position on your couch and hope for a miracle, no matter how much you want to. You can deal with the soggy disaster. Here’s how.

4 Things to Do Right Away

Don’t wait until you’ve reached the fifth stage of grief before addressing a flood. Fast action can minimize a rising, rank situation — and the money it’ll cost to repair.

1. The first thing to do is really a “don’t,” says Glenn Gallas, vice president of operations at Mr. Rooter Plumbing. Don’t ever, ever step into standing basement water. “You could be shocked or electrocuted,” he says. Who wants to venture into that murky mess, anyway? Turn the power off or call an electrician to be safe.

2. Then stop the flow of water. How you do that depends on what the source is:

Broken or malfunctioning pipes

Turn off your water’s shut-off valve. If you don’t know where that is, scope it out now — before the worst happens. Some valves are buried in the ground and require special tools to turn off.

Stop flushing toilets and running faucets. Your local sewage authority may offer pumping services or let you submit a reimbursement claim. If you have a septic system, though, it’s on you. Call the septic company to have your tank pumped ASAP.

Sorry, that’s bad news. You can’t turn off Mother Nature. The good news: Groundwater flooding might not stink as badly as sewage. Get references for a waterproofing pro or a structural engineer because you could have a foundation problem.

Groundwater was the culprit for Nancy Friedman and her husband when their St. Louis home flooded back in 2014. They knew they had a tiny wet spot in their basement, but “I didn’t think too much of it,” Nancy Friedman says. “Going downstairs is not an everyday occurrence for us,” she says, especially since they both travel a lot.

That tiny wet spot soon became a full-on flood in their basement, causing thousands of dollars in carpet damage – not to mention the cost to repair the structural issue that allowed water to seep in in the first place.

3. Find a plumber withahigh-capacity pump. This is not a job for a DIYer. It needs to get done fast. You need a professional-grade pump. “The longer that water sits, and the longer your drywall spends under water, the more long-term damage,” Gallas says. The more damage, the more it costs to clean up.

4. Make your smartphone earn its keep. Take photos and video. then back them up in the cloud, so you’ll have them for insurance purposes.

Spend Oh-So-Wisely on a Kitchen Remodel

DIY Some of the Cleanup to Save Money

Once the water is pumped out, the rest can be a DIY job. Just make sure to protect yourself with:

  • Gloves
  • Rubber boots
  • Eye protection
  • A mask (especially if you’re dealing with a sewage backup)
  • A nose plug if the smell is really bad

Then suck up the remaining muck with a wet-dry vac. You’ll also need an army’s worth of paper towels and plastic bags to dispose of the mess.

Unfortunately, you’ll have to say goodbye to all rugs, carpets, and upholstery, which will soak up floodwater contaminants and bacteria, regardless of the flood source. (Seriously sentimental items might be restorable by a professional, but don’t get your hopes too high.) That’s what happened to Friedman. “The first thing we had to do was pull up the carpet.”

Other restoration steps:

  • Open all windows and doors, and run large fans and dehumidifiers.
  • Scrub water-contaminated walls, floors, cabinetry, or hardware with a soapy solution. Ventilate again.
  • Make a bactericide by adding 1.5 cups of DIY Tip Bleach doesn’t kill mold and mildew. It kills the bacteria that they feed on, but doesn’t destroy the nasty fungi itself. Use soap to zap it. bleach and a few drops of liquid soap to a gallon of water. Spray on the walls; let air dry.

But Don’t Feel Like a Wimp if You Want to Hire a Pro

In fact, both Gallas and Friedman recommend hiring a restoration service, as long as the company you hire is trustworthy and affordable. A small flood might cost as little as $500 to pump out and dry, but a large flood can cost up to $10,000.

“There’s a lot of companies out there that put a guy in a truck and think a high-powered fan is good enough to dry a basement,” Gallas says. Improper technique, like not allowing the home to dry for long enough or failing to properly treat drywall, puts your home at risk for mold or mildew in addition to the flooding damage.

So just be sure to do your homework on who you hire.

Don’t Assume Insurance Will Cover Your Repairs

Friedman’s first call when her basement flooded was to her insurance company. “They told me, ‘You don’t have flood insurance,’” Friedman says. “I thought everybody had flood insurance!”

Standard home insurance often doesn’t cover all types of floods, especially groundwater.

“If I could do a speech on floods, it would be: Do you know this very moment, for sure, if you have flood insurance ?” Friedman says. “Call your insurance agent right now and ask.”

But the best scenario is no flood at all.

5 Things To Do So You’ll Never, Ever Flood Again

  1. Install a leak detector and high-water alarm. These small devices notify you before a small leak becomes a disaster, either via an audible alarm or a text message.
  2. Insulate your pipes. Thawing pipes are one of the leading causes of basement flooding.
  3. Maintain your backwater valve. It prevents sewage from seeping from the septic or sewer system to your home.
  4. Consider a sump pump. Every basement should have one of these flooding saviors. “I think sump pumps should be wedding gifts,” Friedman says.
  5. Flush and dump with caution. Dumping anything besides waste and toilet paper down your toilet or drains is a big no-no — from tampons to grease. These clog the system, causing backups.

I own a rental property in Aurora, Co. and my tenants informed me of a possible mold issue in the basement. I had them call a couple mold companies for bids and Brothers Restoration had by far the lowest price for mold removal.

Luke and Keith the owners quickly sealed off the area and began removing the mold. They also fogged the area afterwards and helped me with the reconstruction process. They were friendly and professional people and I would trust them to work on any of my other properties if need be. Thanks guys.

Tony L. – January 2016

Brothers Restoration Delivers Outstanding Service! We received an estimate within 2 hours after they came out to look at mold. They provide a thorough description of what to expect. They are extremely knowledgeable of their scope of work. They are focus and work diligently.
This is definitely a 5 STAR company and I highly recommend them. Thanks Luke Keith.

Liz M. – June 2016

We are very happy with the service Luke and Keith provided to us. They helped us out with an unexpected attic mold problem that was discovered when selling our home. Their quick response and thorough restoration process proved to us that we went with the right company. We have the peace of mind that comes with knowing that Brothers Restoration has resolved the issue and that they stand behind their work.

Craig K. – July 2016

Luke and Keith came to look at a mold spot in my basement and they were so quick to get the results back and then take care of the problem. They did an amazing job, 2 thumbs up

Stephanie M. – September 2016

When my basement flooded from a broken water main, I contacted Brothers Restoration on a Friday at 5:00 pm. They arrived at my house in 45 minutes, began work immediately, and worked into the night that first night. They came back on Saturday and Sunday too. They had all the equipment and knowledge to perform the water mitigation on my basement. 3 days later I was perfectly dry again. They saved all of my carpet and subfloor, saving me a LOT of money. The people there are fantastic to work with too: being kind, and explaining every step with no surprises. Five Stars Fellas!

Steve A. – August 2016

These guys were fantastic. They gave me a quote after inspecting the attic, and their service was fantastic.
