The revolved cycles of freezing and thawing typically lead to serious deterioration causing cracks in the stone mortar work of the chimney.
Moisture is the enemy of masonry particularly in the winter/springtime of our region. When the water freezes and expands it does damage to concrete chimney tops. This damage starts small and is even imperceptible. As small faults develop in the masonry its expansion begins to allow more water to wick into the material. Ultimately, the damage becomes obvious even to the point of pieces falling down to the ground.
