We Are the Professionals to Call Upon for Re-Pointing Your Chimney!
No matter where you reside in the U.S, your chimney might have taken on damage during the long winter. It might have taken on so much damage this winter, or over time, that your masonry needs attention. If your chimney shows signs of masonry damage, it’s important to schedule repairs before more damage occurs.
What Happens If Your Masonry Is in Poor Conditions
Whether mortar is used between stone, brick, or blocks, it’s imperative that it stays in great condition. Here are some things you have to worry about when mortar cracks and crumbles:
Water Intrusion – When mortar joints are damaged, water can seep into the masonry. As that moisture freezes and thaws, it expands and contracts, forming cracks and compromising both the look and the strength of the masonry.
Compromised Structural Integrity – If the mortar incurs enough damage, it can cause the chimney structure to weaken. Water-damaged bricks tend to spall, which essentially renders them unsafe and unusable.
A Home For Bugs! – Damaged and missing mortar joints create ideal places for insects, spiders, and other creepy crawlies to make a home. Many of these bugs can be a nuisance and cause further damage to your home.
