At Bouchard Masonry in Peterborough, we also provide repair services for chimneys. Damaged or deteriorating chimneys not only look unsightly, they can also be very unsafe. Poorly maintained or repaired chimneys and fireboxes can emit dangerous gases into your home, as well as flames and sparks. Loose bricks, mortar and masonry materials can also fall from your roof and cause property damage.
Why Do Chimneys Deteriorate?
During the cooler months, chimneys are exposed to constant contraction and expansion caused by the hot gases from the fire and the cold air from the outdoors. This can lead to cracks in the brick and mortar, which eventually can become more serious. If you notice any damage to your chimney, calling an experienced masonry professional can save you bigger headaches down the road.
Your best option to keep your chimney safe and operating properly is to call an expert, licensed mason. Get in touch with us today for more information or to schedule a consultation.
