The Value Of Routine Chimney Inspection
Chimneys are robust structures designed for longevity, but not immortality. In Chicago local elements such as extreme heat and humidity, or the brisk winters, are sure to weaken the masonry of your chimney over time. Exposed chimney tops are in the most danger for breakdown in structure. All too often, the need for chimney repair goes unnoticed because periodic inspections are difficult to do, especially when you don’t know exactly what to look for as a homeowner.
While brick may last forever, the plasterwork between your brickwork is not nearly as strong. Over time, cracks can develop that will eventually split open, allowing strong winds to drive rainwater and other debris into them. Contacting BM International on an annual basis for chimney inspection will help you prevent unnecessary deterioration. If we are able to catch chimney damage quickly, we will be able to fix it with tuckpointing. Tuckpointing is the repair of weathered joints in masonry. Damage or deterioration left too long, will result in the need for home chimney repair.
