Inspecting your chimney and getting the needed repairs done will help prevent the risk of fire, leaks and improve the overall look of your home.
Chimney rebuilds can be partial or complete. Chimney Repair could
include a variety of different things, from tuckpointing (filling in the mortar between the joints, where the mortar has eroded), or fixing a chimney liner when it has been damaged or is old and needs replacing.
Getting your chimney fixed, especially in Toronto, where there is so much freezing and thawing happening is very important.
Leaving it can lead to leaks where water comes into the house through the chimney which in turn leads to unnecessary expenses! Most of time, depending on the age of the chimney it is much safer to rebuild it. There are companies that will only repair or rebuild half of the chimney, you must ensure that when the top part of the chimney is rebuilt the bottom part must be solid and in good shape or it is pointless. The bottom part will erode further, and you will end up having to rebuild the whole chimney later on but in that time what can happen is bricks can erode to such a degree that they can fall down the chimney and cause blockage then you are looking at whole other set of problems trying to get the bricks out from inside the chimney.
