In Chicago chimney repair is a needed because brick chimneys are far more exposed to wind, rain, snow and ice than masonry walls. Mortar joints suffer the effects of continued expansion and contraction due to the heat of the fire and cold exterior temperatures. Left unrepaired, chimney damage can cause dangerous and unhealthy gases to enter into your building and can create a fire hazard. Without chimney repair, the structure can fail, potentially causing damage to people or property. It is important to treat Chicago chimney repair issues such as deteriorating mortar promptly, because once mortar begins to deteriorate, it can quickly turn into a much more expensive chimney repair, involving brick replacement or a complete rebuild.
