Your home’s chimney faces a wide range of climate conditions each year. Typically the chimney receives the greatest amount of moisture exposure on a house, and, because it is free-standing above the roofline it is also prone to a frequent freeze/thaw cycle. This means that any water trapped in the bricks will expand, causing them to crack or spall (the breaking away of the brick face).
The deterioration of the chimney often takes many years to begin, but left unchecked it will tend to get worse quite quickly. For the reasons mentioned above, most of the deterioration tends to happen over the course of winter. Our qualified brick-masons are equipped with the proper tools, materials and expertise to return your chimney or fireplace back to perfect working order and appearance.
