Your home’s chimney is a vital part of its heating and cooling system and an important part of keeping inside air clean and healthy for your family. A home’s chimney vents fumes and emissions from a gas furnace and fireplace away from the home and your exterior spaces.
Not all homes today are constructed with chimneys but if your home has one, it’s vital that you keep it in good repair. As with brick exterior walls, cracks and chips in chimney brick and mortar allow moisture into the home, leading to water damage and resultant mold growth.
Ignoring needed chimney masonry in Boston and other repair work also increases the risk of a chimney collapse! Repointing brick and other masonry repairs for your home keeps that structure safe, both inside and out.
