(EMAILWIRE.COM, January 03, 2007 ) Livonia, MI -- Rebuilding your chimney and replacing damaged brick can be an overwhelming venture these days. Demolition of the existing chimney or brickwork and hauling away the debris can be time consuming and backbreaking work. Finding a brick that matches the color texture and size of the original brick can involve stopping at a dozen brickyards only to find a substandard match. Rebuilding the chimney itself is labor intensive and detail-oriented, leaving mistakes visible for a lifetime. Even the most experienced do-it-yourselfers can become nervous tackling this daunting project.

Demolition of masonry structures can require special tools and equipment, costing thousands of dollars. While strong when completed, brick structures can become very weak and delicate as brick are removed from them. It is not uncommon end up removing many more brick than originally anticipated on a project. Most dumps charge by the pound to dispose of debris, and your garbage man is not going to take away a pile of brick for you. You must have a plan for debris removal. In most cases, it is best to leave the brick and block-work to a professional mason. Here are some helpful tips on finding the right bricklayer for your job.
