There are several threats that can come from a Deteriorated Chimney. First, loose bricks pose a physical hazard to the house and people/objects surrounding it, making your home an unsafe living area. In addition to this, gaps and cracks in the brick and mortar joints are an easy source for water to enter the home, almost certainly causing damage. The integrity of the chimney’s liner system is vital for the proper ventilation of the appliances that are utilizing the chimney, and most importantly, the prevention of Carbon Monoxide.
Tuckpointing of Chimney’s is very common in our cold Chicago climate. Due to cold conditions, the mortar between the bricks begin to wear down and go through freeze and thaw cycles. Let our chimney professionals inspect your chimney annually to assess and determine if your chimney is in need of any service. Like anything in life, catching your chimney problems early can save money and costly chimney repairs in the future.
