Importance Of Chimney Masonry Repairs

Masonry chimneys face a lot of wear and tear. From time to time, repairs are necessary, and they are never something that should be put off. If your brickwork is cracked and your mortar is crumbling, call in an expert today to assess the situation and advise you on the next appropriate steps. The longer you let it go, the worse off you’ll be!

Water & Masonry

One of the biggest reasons masonry wears down is due to water damage. Water enters the brick, then causes countless issues such as rotting, rust, stains, cracks, holes, clogs, decay, and more! All of these lead to bigger issues down the line and they are all things you want to get fixed as soon as possible.

And if the freeze/thaw process occurs, then you’re in real trouble. This is what happens when the absorbed water freezes in the winter, then thaws back out in the summer. As the water expands and retracts, so does your chimney! That adds a lot of extra pressure, which puts stress on your entire system, as a whole.
