Chimneys are one of the most under-appreciated elements of a home. Most homeowners don’t give them much thought unless a problem arises. By then, the damage is already done. Cracks in the brickwork and mortar will collect water. As the seasons change, this water freezes and expands, eventually deteriorating the structural integrity of the chimney stack. As these cracks grow wider, they also allow insects, cold air, and water into your home!
There are several potential failure points along your chimney structure, including the chimney cap, mortar, and flashing. Crowns are constructed using only a thin layer of mortar that covers and seals the top of a masonry chimney, which means there isn’t much protecting your flue and chimney from the elements.
Regular maintenance and inspections can help preserve the beauty and function of your chimney while keeping your family and property safe.
