Chimneys are a difficult object to check because of their placement. But there are a few things you can watch out for on the ground that will enable you to spot possible problems before they become serious. Some indications that your chimney requires repair are:
The entire stack may expand and compress if the construction of your chimney has been damaged and moisture is entering. Brickwork that is uneven or even cracked will make this obvious.
Another factor contributing to this is moisture entering your chimney. One of the most obvious symptoms that your chimney requires repair is the presence of white salt deposits called “efflorescence,” which are left behind as water penetrates between bricks.
Your chimney is probably no longer water-tight if you detect any leakage, dripping, or puddles inside your home near your fireplace.
The primary barrier keeping the elements out of your chimney stack is the chimney cowl. To prevent more damage to your property, make sure to have it fixed as soon as possible if it is obviously misaligned or damaged.
Your chimney stack replacement might be a difficult undertaking, but our crew is well equipped to tackle it. It will not just include fixing some of the roof work; we will also handle all of the bricklaying and guarantee that all of the internal components are secure and functional. Do not hesitate to contact our staff if your chimney appears to be damaged or has fallen. If required, we’ll replace the stack after evaluating the damage and giving you advice on the best course of action.
