Chimney Repairs – Before and After
What You See Might Not Be What You Get
When you look up at your chimney stack ,you might think it looks great. But until you get up close and personal with the brick, you cannot see the beginnings of deterioration of the mortar joints and surface of the brick. Unless you get on the roof yourself and look ,you will need to get a technician out to conduct an inspection to see this. When you know this is happening you can make better decisions as to how and when it is best to fix it. The reason the bricks wear on the stack is often due to rain, wind and extreme heat and cold. All of the materials that make up mortar and brick expand and contract thus wear. There are some great ways to help prevent this wear while still maintaining the proper ventilation of the brick. You might want to call us or read more about waterproofing to see if this is a good fit for your system.
