Don’t Neglect Your Chimney Stack

 

Many homeowners adopt the ‘out of sight out of mind’ approach when it comes to their chimneys, but restoring a neglected chimney stack is money well spent. 

Chimney stacks are problematic and usually the main cause of reported leaks in homes. Roofing materials naturally deteriorate with age and with the ever-changing British weather causing temperatures to fluctuate, this results in damaged mortar, damp penetration and broken pots. The reason for this; chimney stacks are the highest point of all properties.

How Do I Know if My Chimney Stack Needs Repairing?

 

Visible cracks, decaying or crumbling mortar and damp walls below the stack are all signs that your chimney needs repairing. Although this might not sound serious, if ignored, major problems will arise which can result in structural issues such as instability or at worst collapse!
