At Home Painters Toronto, we understand you may have questions about our brick chimney repair services. To help you make an informed decision, we have compiled a list of frequently asked questions and their answers.

A brick chimney is an important part of a home’s structure and design. It provides ventilation for the fireplace. It also adds aesthetic appeal to a house’s exterior. However, a brick chimney can deteriorate over time. And when this happens, it’s crucial to repair and rebuild it to prevent further damage.

And that’s where we come in! At Home Painters Toronto, we offer a wide range of chimney repair and rebuild services. We’ve provided homeowners in Toronto and the GTA with quality chimney repair and rebuild services since 1991.

With over 36 years of experience under our belts, we know precisely what it takes to get your chimneys looking beautiful again. Whether you need to repair a few bricks or rebuild the entire chimney, we’ve got you covered.

Signs that Your Brick Chimney Needs Replacement or Repair


Cracked bricks or mortar are clear signs your chimney needs attention. These cracks can let moisture in, causing more damage and weakening the structure.


Spalling happens when water causes bricks to flake, peel, or pop out due to the freeze-thaw cycle. It not only looks bad but also weakens the chimney.


White staining, or efflorescence, shows excessive moisture in the chimney. While it can be cleaned, its presence means water is getting in, leading to more damage.


Worn or crumbling mortar joints between bricks signal needed repairs. Deteriorating joints weaken the chimney and should be fixed promptly.


Rust in the firebox or damper indicates poor ventilation and moisture buildup. It can cause further damage and needs immediate attention.


The chimney crown prevents water from entering the chimney. A cracked or damaged crown allows water in, leading to costly repairs. 


A visibly leaning chimney needs urgent professional inspection and repair. It is a safety hazard, indicating serious structural issues.


Leaks, dampness, or stains around the chimney are red flags for water damage. This can affect both the chimney and your home’s interior, causing extensive repairs.


Repairing and rebuilding a damaged brick chimney is crucial for several reasons:

  • Safety: A damaged chimney poses a safety hazard as it may collapse or cause fires. Repairing it ensures the structural integrity of your home.
  • Prevents Further Damage: By fixing cracks, leaks, and other damages to your chimney, you prevent further deterioration that can be costly to repair.
  • Avoid Costly Repairs: Neglecting small issues can lead to more significant problems and expensive repairs in the future. By addressing them promptly, you save money in the long run.

The average chimney repair cost ranges from $250 to $8,000. However, repairing and rebuilding will vary depending on the extent of damage and the size of your chimney. It’s best to schedule an inspection with us for a more accurate estimate.

But if you’re curious about what it might cost, here are some ballpark figures:

  • Small handyman project: $1,500 to $3,000 + HST
  • Medium handyman project: $3,000 to $5,000 + HST
  • Large handyman project: $5,000 to $10,000 + HST
  • XL handyman project: $10,000 to $20,000 + HST

Unless otherwise noted on the contract, yes, our quotes usually include both materials and labour costs. We only utilize premium materials to ensure durability and endurance, and our experienced professionals provide expert craftsmanship.

The duration of your project depends on the scope and complexity of the work required. During our initial consultation, we will discuss a timeframe estimate and continue to keep you updated as the project progresses.

However, if you’re looking for a general idea of how long it might take, here are some average project timelines:

  • Small handyman project: 1 to 2 business days
  • Medium handyman project: 2 to 4 business days
  • Large handyman project: 5 to 7 business days
  • XL handyman project: 1 to 2 weeks
