Your chimney serves a very important purpose to your home, business or property. A chimney allows combustion, which in turn encourages debris and by-products to be vented away from your building safely.

Chimney Health, Repair and Construction

When a chimney is built using quality craftsmanship, it also adds a beautiful, rustic aesthetic to any structure. All too often however, we forget the practical elements of our chimney, forgetting to perform regular inspections on their health and function.

The severe Chicago weather conditions can do serious damage to the masonry in your chimney, putting the structural integrity, and in turn the safety of your property, at risk. In winter, freezing weather shrinks the bricks, stretching the cement between them. If the cement that holds the chimney bricks together fails, moisture penetrates the cracks. As the water freezes it expands and causes the upper rows of brick to gradually separate.

Summer temperatures in excess of 72 °F have the opposite effect. Furthermore, as brick and stonework ages, the risk of deterioration and breakdown will increase. The risks of a weakened or unhealthy chimney can be avoided through regular chimney inspections and when necessary, complete or partial chimney rebuilds and chimney cap replacements.

At BM International, we take the safety of your property very seriously. We understand the importance behind providing best quality masonry services, including chimney repair and restoration.
