Chimneys are exposed to the worst of the weather and over time masonry and pointing can fail and weather flashing can become loose or damaged allowing rainwater to penetrate the stack. In cold weather these can freeze and expand causing damage to the brickwork which combined with the heat from the fire fumes can cause damage to be accelerated.
Without repair the chimney will eventually become unsafe and dangerous but spotting these issues early and taking remedial action will extend the longevity of the stack. Where chimneys are more seriously damaged it might be necessary to rebuild parts or all of the stack and our expert chimney engineers will survey your chimney system and recommend appropriate repairs.
As well as a visual review we can also use cherry pickers and high access platforms and undertake internal CCTV camera surveys to determine the extent of any damage.
