When is the last time you had your chimney inspected or repaired?
Chimneys are usually the first part of a home’s masonry to show signs of deterioration. This is mostly due to the fact that chimneys are constantly bombarded by the elements, in addition to continual temperature fluctuations.
They serve their purpose under grueling demands, yet you probably give little thought to them most of the time, which can be a big mistake. Failing to visually inspect your chimney for damage on a regular basis can lead to the need for more serious repairs, damage to your roofing or property, and even a complete replacement.
Don’t wait until your chimney is irreparable!
A simple hairline crack in your chimney capstone, if neglected, can lead to a number of larger problems. Water penetration through a failed cap can cause the top courses of your chimney to disintegrate to the point where masonry repair is mandatory. When the majority of the bricks on a chimney are flaking, spalling, cracking, displacing or even missing, it is time to rebuild it with new masonry units, possibly even from the foundation up.
Early detection is the key to protecting your property.
Early repair is the most economical solution, so it’s important that you call us at the first sign of deterioration.
