Seeing missing brickwork, crumbling mortar, cracks in your crown, and other signs of chimney damage can be alarming for any homeowner. You want to put a stop to the damage fast, but in order to do that, you have to know what the root cause of the damage is.

Let’s look at some of the most common causes of chimney damage we see in the Afton area.

What’s Triggering My Chimney Problems?

What might be causing your chimney’s brickwork to crack and crumble? Well, water-related issues are one of the more common things to be wary of. A leaky chimney can damage brickwork, as well as chimney liners, flashing, woodwork in nearby walls and attics, and more. So doing what you can to keep water out of your chimney is vital.

We can help! We offer waterproofing and other forms of preventtive maintenance, so this is never a problem you’ll have to worry about with The Chimney Guys on speed-dial.

What’s another common cause of chimney damage? Creosote. If regular sweepings aren’t part of your fireplace maintenance routine, then creosote will build up inside the chimney and could eventually cause a chimney fire. Chimney fires can cause significant damage that is costly and time-consuming to address.

Fortunately, our crew has the knowledge, experience, and training to take on any issue you’re facing. We can even help you prevent issues with a little preventive maintenance.
