LAKE ZURICH CHIMNEY RESTORATION SERVICES
Have you ever driven around the neighborhood and seen a lot of brick and stone buildings? There’s a reason for that. You see, brick & stone can last up to 100 years because of their porous nature. That’s fantastic news when it comes to your pocket book! However that also means, over time, the materials will be weakened by water. Especially in the mortar joints. That’s the cement between the brick and stone. The average hold time for mortar joints are 20-30 years.
To extend the life your chimney, we recommend our Lake Zurich clients have it inspected and treated by a professional company, such as Chimney Repairs & Masonry Construction. Our technicians will look for cracked or crumbling mortar as well as water damage or loose bricks. If we find two or more of these symptoms on your chimney we’ll assess the integrity of the structure.
Please know that every effort will be made to repair your chimney and stop the extent of the water damage; however if the structure is too weak and beyond repair a chimney restoration may be necessary. So if you see cracks in between the mortar joints, it’s time to take action.
