What You Should Know About Chimney Repair

Chimneys need repair for several reasons. Age alone is a primary reason. Like everything else, they wear out. In our area the biggest factor is the weather. When there has been rain followed by a freeze any exterior masonry can be damaged due to the porous nature of brick and mortar. The Freezing temps can cause expansion which leads to cracks. Heat from chimneys and cold temperatures add stress to masonry structures as well. A well cared for and repaired chimney will last longer, add value to the house and improve the overall aesthetic of your home. Please use our Glossary if any of these terms are unfamiliar to you.
