Repair & Repointing

Mortar Failure
Age, rain runoff and seasonal freeze/thaw cycles eventually cause the mortar between chimney bricks to crumble and fall out. Mortar joints that aren't tooled to a water-shedding, concave shape accelerate the problem, as does a step-tiered, corbeled chimney that causes roof runoff to splatter the brick.
A bigger problem is mortar that's loose or has shrunk, creating gaps between it and the brick. Cracked or damaged mortar allows water and cold air to infiltrate the chimney, where it can cause hazardous damage to the flue.
This requires repointing the brick - chipping out the old mortar and applying new material.
Solution - Call Doug's Chimney Sweep and make your repair appointment.
