Over time your external chimney stack can deteriorate, which can lead to unsafe, potentially costly structural problems, which can be avoided with some simple remedial work. Any deterioration of the pointing to the brickwork, concrete caps, rendering and flashings can allow the ingress of water, which can freeze in the winter, expand and begin the process of dislodging brickwork, chimney pots, all of which can cause a chimney stack to fail.
By attending to appropriate repairs, potentially expensive restorations can be avoided. Please contact us for a free and honest appraisal, and a no-obligation quote.
