Chimney Repair, Masonry Contractor
Chicago Chimney Repair (847) 724-5600 - All of the Chicago chimneys require occasional servicing to maximize their performance and slow the deterioration process as much as possible. Chicago's weather has such a big impact o their components that routine evaluations and maintenance are crucial in preventing chimney walls cracking, bricks spalling, mortar deterioration, etc.
The most exposed to weather impact causing deterioration are Chicago chimneys that have no (or damaged) crowns and / or caps. This condition allows rain water to penetrate the structure from the inside out and, during the cold season, freeze up, and expend which results in severe damage.
Loose, falling mortar from the joints, spider web type cracks appearing along the joints, spalling brick surface, loose bricks, vertical and horizontal structural cracks are the signs that your Chicago chimney requires immediate attention. Delaying chimney servicing can only result in further damage, sometimes beyond the threshold of repair. What that means is that you may need to have you masonry chimney taken apart and rebuild its section or the entire structure.
As you may imagine, rebuilding a Chicago chimney would be much more time and labor consuming than some minor repairs or even a repointing of its entire structure. What's more important, a severely deteriorated Chicago chimney, especially a tall one that has no supports, could tip over and damage the roof while collapsing. It could also injure or even kill a person standing on the ground in the area of its fall.
