As we all know, our streets and highways take a beating when the temps drop. Having said that, the porches, chimneys, patios, and walls (the stone and brick masonry) of your home are just as porous. Older homes such as homes built in the 1920's are significantly more porous than our roads and highways. This is due to the fact that brick homes were, and still are, made of materials that are nearly identical by nature. What this means is that the mortar and the brick themselves absorb a great deal of water. When the moisture in the masonry unit freezes it expands, causing extremely serious damage over time to your home. Chimneys are often one of the most neglected system in our entire household. This is bad news since the safe operation of our fireplaces and stoves requires a properly working chimney system! During your annual chimney inspection, our certified chimney sweeps will be able to determine the condition of your chimney and offer solutions for chimney repair and maintenance should it be required.
