If not constructed perfectly, chimneys are the first masonry to deteriorate on a home. The weather will take its toll on your chimney. These external forces can wreak on brick and mortar. Winter freezing and thawing and freezing again can, over time, deteriorate mortar and brick to the point where it needs to be repaired or replaced. As well, chimney brickwork or lining may become damaged from chimney fires, lightning strikes, or just the natural settling of your home. Clay tiles, used to line some chimneys, may break or crack over time allowing heat and fumes to transfer or escape into the home. Over years of use, bricks or linings of chimneys may also be damaged from condensation.
There are a number of signs that will indicate a chimney needs repair:
* Mortar deteriorating/falling out from between bricks
* Bricks bulging or faces popping off the bricks
* Discolouration of bricks
* Chimney crown (cement slab at the top of the chimney) cracking or nonexistent
* Chimney tile (round or square terracotta tube at top of chimney) cracked or broken
* Chimney leaning
