CHIMNEY REBUILDS

We want to share some general information that all homeowners need to know about their chimney. Chimneys are beautiful to look at, and do serve a purpose, but if not properly maintained, they can bring on major expenses and headaches in the future. And for some, the future could be sooner than you think.

The chimney cap is normally the root of all chimney problems. Traditionally from the 50’s - 2000’s chimney caps were made out of mortar. Mortar serves its purpose when bonding brick and masonry together but is not the best choice to cap a chimney with. Mortar will crack and allow water in almost immediately. Over the years it will create paths down your chimney and continue to deteriorate the chimney internally, eventually let water into the inside of your home.
