Bethesda Masonry Contractor Services
The Best Brick and Masonry Contractor in Bethesda
Masonry is both a trade and an art. It involves more than just adhering block together using mortar: masonry is a mix of smart design, color matching, materials science, and the ability to repair bonded structures already in place.
Priddy Chimney firmly believes masonry is the one trade that mixes physics and sculpture, strength and design.
We Take Pride in Our Chimney Repair & Rebuild Services
Many chimneys are covered with terra cotta clay tiles, stacked one on top of the other all the way from the foundation to the top of the chimney.
Over time, the clay tiles will weaken due to the acidic nature of the vented gases, extreme heat, absorption of moisture from rain and snow, and the shifting and settling of the house and foundation.
These compromised tiles will spall, crack and split, at which point they can no longer contain the gases and the flammable byproducts of combustion they are designed to vent.
With a new chimney liner installed by Priddy Chimney Solutions, you can restore the safety and efficiency of your chimney.
Gas Fireplace Repair and More
We have deep experience with clay brick, concrete block, and stone structures in historic and contemporary homes. Our repair expertise includes repointing (also known as “tuckpointing”) of deteriorated mortar joints, removal and replacement of cracked or distressed (sometimes called “spalling”) brick, as well as shelf angle and lintel replacement/restoration.
If it involves brick, block, or mortar, chances are we have project experience. Call us with your issues and let’s chat about the right masonry solution for you.
Quality Tuckpointing & Fireplace Mortar Repair
Tuckpointing involves using two different colors of mortar to fill in the joints of brickwork.
One color used for tuckpointing is created to match the actual bricks. This causes it to blend in and creates the appearance of seamlessness.
The second color is contrasted, and used for the actual appearance of mortar joints.
By placing the second color in between the brick-colored mortars it produces the illusion that joints are very fine instead of appearing thick.
Fireplace Design & Build
A fireplace can set the tone for the whole aesthetic and style of a room by acting as a focal point. Rough brick or stone can give the space a rustic feel, while smooth tile can be used to set a modern tone.
Whatever your personal style, Priddy can work with you to design a solution that fits your living environment.
We do the following:
- Design Fireplace Mantels and Built-Ins
- Install Fireplace Glass Doors
- Installation of New Factory-Built Fireplaces
- Conversion of wood burning fireplaces to gas
- Wood burning fireplace insert upgrades
- …and More!
Looking for Air Duct Cleaning Service Near Me?
Best Air Duct Cleaning Bethesda
Do you have floor-level return vents allowing dirt and dust to be pulled into your heating and air conditioning ducts? Do you own shedding pets? Have you recently finished major construction or renovations? All are excellent reasons for you to consider having your ducts cleaned.
Our cleaning process draws dirt and other contaminants out of your heating and cooling system using a vacuum assembly. Once a directional vacuum is established within the ducts, our technicians remove each register and use an assortment of attachments to agitate and loosen the contaminants inside the air ducts, which then flow into the vacuum assembly. Finally, the last step of our cleaning process is the application of a sanitizing deodorant in each of the main duct runs. This cleaning will result in your home’s indoor air not only being fresher but also healthier for your family.
Priddy also services large-scale commercial duct systems, including multi-unit condominiums, garage venting, restaurant hood, and other complex systems.
Top Rated Dryer Vent Cleaning Bethesda
Having a clean dryer vent improves the safety and efficiency of dryer installations. Dryer vents get filled with lint and other debris over time.
This increases drying time which, in turn, can cause the dryer to overheat. Best practice is to have dryer vents cleaned and inspected periodically to avoid exhaust restrictions.
Our Certified Dryer and Exhaust Vent technicians use equipment designed specifically to tackle both simple and complex dryer vent systems. The technicians remove lint as well as remedy blockages caused by animal nesting and collapsed ducts.
