Drastic winter weather can wreak havoc on your chimney. If you begin to notice loose bricks or dysfunction in your fireplace or wood stove, it is time to contact Nor’easter Roofing to have your chimney repaired or rebuilt! Damaged chimneys can allow warm air to escape, leading to drafts and higher heating costs in your home. Chimney damage can be caused by a number of factors, from ice dams to heavy winds.
When is it time to Repair My Chimney?
It is time to repair your chimney as soon as you begin to notice problems forming. Heavy bricks can be dislodged by heavy enough winds, which can cause damage to your home, landscaping and anyone sitting below. Damage can be repaired quickly as it forms, no matter the season.
In addition to causing damage to your roof, ice dams can harm your chimney. The influx of constantly melting and freezing water can cause cracks to form in cement holding the bricks together. As ice dams persist, the cracks will grow, which compromises the chimney itself. In addition to potentially loosening heavy bricks, the cracks allow water to leak into your home, causing damage to your fireplace and ceiling.
If your chimney is beyond minor repairs, Nor’easter Roofing can rebuild it for you! Using durable bricks and bonding agents, we can provide you with a chimney that will last for years to come. While we work on your chimney, we can also waterproof it to withstand excess water.
