Chimney repair is usually caused by the freeze and thaw in climates in a surrounding area. Bricks absorb moisture. When bricks become wet and then freeze, they start to expand when this occurs which causes the bricks to pop. Chimneys can have damage sporadically throughout the chimney or the entire chimney. Brick and mortar matching is essential in completing a chimney repair. Many mistakes happen when inexperienced bricklayers try to rebuild a chimney. A couple common mistakes are:

1) Not going down to a sound level.  This mistake is like throwing your money away. Make sure you have Chimney Cricket out to determine the correct amount of courses your chimney must come down when rebuilding.

2) Not checking to see what is vented out the chimney.  This mistake can wreak havoc on an innocent homeowner.  If you are venting an appliance that is a high efficiency through a chimney that is not lined, the chimney most assuredly will fall apart again. Be sure to only have Chimney Cricket Certified Chimney Professionals out to ensure you’re not making one of these mistakes. These are just a few of the common mistakes made in our industry. We will protect your family and your budget from amateur error.
