Signs Your Chimney Needs Repairs
The first step in getting your chimney back in shape is being able to detect when there is a problem. Here are a few things to look out for:
If the mortar that joins the bricks together—or the bricks themselves—is starting to crumble, it's time to give us a call. Brick has a long lifespan, but still needs some repairs now and then.
Damage to the wall near the chimney.
If the wallpaper or paint next to the chimney is starting to appear damaged, it's an indicator of a buildup of moisture inside the chimney.
The damper is the mechanism that allows you to open and close the chimney. If it starts to rust, it's another sign of excess moisture. Moisture can create cracks, which can lead to an inability to regulate heat. This can lead to a house fire, so it's not something to take lightly.
