Brooklyn Chimney Repair

You rely on your chimney to channel smoke up and out, but when the chimney’s outside or inside walls crack, you may have serious problems. Mortar joints between stone or bricks are likely to flake, wash out or crack.
What Causes these Cracks?
The freeze-thaw action of colder climates is usually the culprit. Moisture can make its way into the masonry, damaging it and any attached object made of metal like a lightning rod or satellite dish resulting damage. The topmost area of the interior walls of the chimney are the most vulnerable, as well as being the most difficult to notice unless you spend time on your roof. Unfortunately, neglect and lack of inspection often lead to the need for major repairs.
