One of the most common problems that affect the exterior of a chimney is damage caused by freezing precipitation. Many older homes will experience some level of water damage during the life of the chimney. Unfortunately some newer homes can also experience these symptoms due to insufficient maintenance of the structure. These damages can lead to spalling of the brickwork, leaks into the home or worse. The best way to protect a newer chimney is to know the signs to watch for while taking preventive steps to better protect its mortar.
