Why Does a Chimney Crack?
A chimney can crack for any number of reasons. The most common cause in our Canadian climate is the freezing the thawing temperatures that occur in spring and fall. Water finds its way into seems and cracks, and then expands and contracts when it freezes and thaws. This freezing and thawing process is extremely hard on masonry, stone, asphalt and concrete.
Other reasons for a cracked chimney could include:
- chimney movement
- structural damage in/around chimney
- poor initial construction
- weather and climate
My Chimney is Cracked, Now What?
The presence of even the smallest cracks can lead to much larger problems down the road, as the issues compound themselves, and lead to even further cracking and damage. Blackwell Masonry offers free estimates, and guarantees all of our work for a minimum of 2 years. Click here to contact us today.
