Masonry Repair and Relining for Wauwatosa Residents
Masonry chimneys are not a perfect match for the weather. We'll take your weather-beaten, deteriorated, obstructed, and condensed masonry chimney and make it look brand new. Don't let your Wauwatosa home become a danger to you or your family.
A broken chimney can mean poisonous gases entering your home, moisture issues, teetering heat, or chimney fires. Poisonous gases can enter your home even easier if the chimney lining is cracked. We provide professional chimney relining service to ensure proper ventilation.
Signs to look for when thinking about a chimney repair:
- Bricks start to spall after winter exposing cracks
- Natural salts are brought to the surface of your bricks, causing whitening
- Crown failure leads to poor shelter from weather
If you notice any of these negative effects, call for an inspection immediately. We'll make sure your chimney is fixed as soon as possible.

Caulking for Stonework in Wauwatosa
Seal your brick and stone exterior with masonry caulking. Custom Restoration uses durable, 100% silicone waterproof, flexible, shrink and crack-proof caulk. Caulk maintenance prevents water, mold and fungus growth between bricks. Improper care causes costly interior damage, material corrosion and health problems from mold exposure. Maintaining exterior caulk preserves your Wauwatosa home or business and provides a fresh, clean look. Take care of your property with Custom Restoration’s affordable, high-quality caulking services.
Lintel Replacements For Wauwatosa Homes and Businesses
Custom Restoration specializes in lintel replacement for Wauwatosa homes and businesses. L-beams provide support for windows, doors, entrances and fireplaces. Over time, rust-jacking causes l-beams to rust and swell. This process places stress on the foundation and surrounding masonry.
Noticeable cracks, protruding bricks, damaged corners or crumbling mortar near an opening signal a faulty lintel. It’s important to have a professional evaluate the severity to avoid a more costly restoration and future problems. Custom Restoration revitalizes old architecture and ensures a proper foundation through lintel repair.
Cultured & Decorative Stones
If you are planning to add decorative stones to a chimney or building front, we recommend cultured stone. The benefits of choosing cultured stone over natural stone include:
- it's lighter in weight - making it less weight-bearing on your building
- it's easier to install - reducing the price of installation
- it will last longer - reducing future repair numbers and making the price more valuable
At Total Masonry Repair, we carry flat ledgestone, cobblestone, sculpted ashlar, and fieldstone. Upgrading your decorative stone can be easy when you choose to work with Total Masonry Repair in Wauwatosa. We make the replacement and building process quick, easy, and affordable. You don't even need to lift a finger.
