Chimneys are not as indestructible as they often appear. In fact, chimney rebuilds, brick repair, and chimney removal are often needed because of vulnerability to moisture. Bricks are highly porous, and they erode quickly if there is water intrusion in the chimney system. If damage is caught quickly enough, repairs can be made.
Mortar only lasts about 25 years, and then it tends to break off and crack. Once mortar deterioration has begun, chimney masonry is more vulnerable to water. If you are keeping a close eye on your chimney, you can replace mortar before major damage has been done. This is accomplished through a procedure called “tuckpointing.” Our masonry experts will remove old mortar by routing it out. We then apply fresh mortar, which restores the chimney brick and mortar to its original structural integrity.
Complete Chimney Rebuilding
Moisture in chimney masonry is particularly destructive when there are freezing temperatures throughout winter. Repeated freezing and thawing cycles create expansion and contraction of bricks. The movement eventually causes spalling, which means that the brick face begins to crack and pop off. You may see debris around your chimney on the roof or on the ground below, as a result of spalling.
If chimney repairs aren’t made in a timely manner, the bricks can deteriorate to the point that the chimney begins leaning. It is then in danger of collapsing. Chimney removal and a complete chimney rebuild may be necessary.
