Chimney Masonry & Brick Repair You Can Count On!
When it comes to masonry, proper design is critical to the longevity of the entire structure. But even a well-built chimney or fireplace can experience decay over time and will require maintenance. It’s true masonry decay is typically gradual and can be difficult to notice, but there are some things you can keep an eye out for. Some common signs of masonry disrepair:
If you notice any of these things, your masonry is most likely in need of some professional attention.
Why Choose A Professional?
When you need repairs or maintenance work done on the important systems in your home — plumbing, electrical, etc. — most people don’t hesitate to call an expert. The same should be true for your chimney system. Masonry work requires skill and craftsmanship that should be left to a trained professional. To be a professional mason, you need to have both an eye for aesthetics and a technical knowledge of the materials you are working with. You must know if the materials you are considering are designed for use in high- temperature environments, and whether or not they will last under the normal conditions. In order to have an efficient and safe chimney, you must also have a comprehensive understanding of the system and its parts. Don’t leave this important task to the inexperienced; call a professional! When you don’t hire a professional mason, you have no idea what your results will be. You may have the most stunning design, but if the mason lacks the knowledge and skill, the result will be far from a dream.
In addition to inconsistent and unpredictable results, bad masonry work puts your home at serious risk. If the wrong type of mortar is used or if the masonry work isn’t done properly, it can cause leaks, risk of overheating or fire, and a way for dangerous gases to enter into your home.
