Repair Services and Maintenance
Harm to chimneys may be brought on by a number of factors. Nonetheless, the scope and size of repairs is most generally 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 harsh freeze/thaw cycles adds even more weight to the demand for consistent inspections.
Qualified repairs are needed when you feel that the scope of the deterioration is above and beyond what you can easily handle. Inspection by our CSIA certified experts will supply you with a report which offers appropriate maintenance procedures.
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 service treatment of a waterproofing sealant, this quality is gradually lost with time and toward the end of their life span the moisture absorbency of masonry raises considerably. This often leads to increasingly rapid expansion damage during our freeze/thaw.
Spalled brick is a very common damage found in chimneys.
Missing mortar joints should be thoroughly repointed with
new mortar to stop 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 pros here at Dayco General for a chimney inspection to confirm the safety and security of your home.
