Prior to delving into chimney repairs, it is critical to evaluate the structural form of the chimney as this is the grounds of the preliminary procedures. The brick and mortar should not allow rain or other elements to permeate the chimney’s composite structure.

Deterioration to chimneys can possibly be brought on by a number of issues. Nevertheless, the scope and size of repairs is most often a factor of the age of the structure but can also be brought on by harsh weather (falling tree limbs or lightning strikes) or a chimney fire. Problems due to deteriorating mortar, excess moisture within the chimney, or a chimney fire will weaken clay tile liners and the brick, it is extremely important that chimneys are inspected from time to time. The Chimney Safety Institute of America recommends yearly chimney inspection. In the Twin Cities Metro area our excessive freeze/thaw cycles adds even more weight to the requirement for frequent inspections.

Swollen bricks or swollen mortar joints can cause the chimney to lean and lose its stability. Masonry swelling results from age and water leaks in the structure. Both brick and mortar are relatively water resistant when they are brand-new, but without the routine maintenance treatment of a waterproofing sealant, this quality is gradually lost in time and toward the end of their life span the moisture absorbency of masonry escalates significantly. This often leads to increasingly rapid expansion damage during our freeze/thaw.

Older brick and mortar that has been through many freeze/thaw cycles, particularly on chimneys that have a leaking cap that has allowed water to both the interior and exterior of a wall, can swell drastically causing an observable (sometimes unsafe) lean as time goes by. Surprisingly, a chimney that leans due to this process will regularly tip away from the sun. In the Northern hemisphere this means an older chimney with severe freeze/thaw expansion damage will lean toward the North because the sunny side will have a broader depth of temperature variation and a lot more frequent fluctuations in the freeze/thaw phenomena. We have seen tall chimneys that were leaning so precariously that we advised non-occupancy of areas below the hinge point of the chimney until repairs could be made.

Spalled brick is a very common damage found in chimneys.
Missing mortar joints should be properly repointed with
new mortar to minimize further damage to the chimney structure.

In spite of many essential preventative measures, if you find any cracks, signs of degeneration, crumbling mortar in the chimney, it is time to get in touch with our professionals here at Dayco General for a chimney inspection to assure the safety and security of your home. Ignoring masonry chimney issues may possibly be downright costly and dangerous for your family.
