Since chimneys are so exposed to the elements, they’re often the first part of a building to show signs of deterioration.
Properly maintaining a chimney is important for safety reasons as well as serving aesthetic purpose. A hairline crack (often not visible from the ground) in the brick, mortar or cap of a chimney can cause serious damage to the building, if left unattended. Water penetration through a failed cap can cause the top portion of the chimney to crumble. Dislodged bricks and/or clay liners can block the flue, creating a carbon monoxide hazard.
Proper maintenance of the chimney is of utmost importance, not only for aesthetic purposes, but for safety reasons as well. A hairline crack (often invisible from the ground level) in the chimney cap, brick or mortar, if not attended, can cause serious and rapid damages. Water penetration through a failed cap will cause the top portion of the chimney to crumble. Dislodged bricks or clay liners can block the flue, trapping vapors inside the living areas, creating a carbon-monoxide poisoning hazard.
