Chimneys can be one of the most beautiful design features of a home’s exterior. They add interest and depth to the property’s façade. And, while chimneys require minimal care, they do need regular maintenance.
A chimney is constructed of two main materials: bricks and mortar. Mortar is the “glue” that keeps the bricks in place. While most bricks with last for a century, mortar has a much shorter lifespan – typically 25 years. Exposure to harsh conditions and excess water can make it deteriorate even faster. When this happens water can seep down through the chimney and damage the home.
Tuckpointing is the best repair process to stop the deterioration process and prevent any future damage. It can also remedy a solution before a complete chimney rebuild is necessary. Tuckpointing a chimney is the best solution to common mortar problems and helps preserve the life of the chimney itself.
