If you begin to notice your chimney is starting to have the bricks chip or the mortar is falling out of place, then you should consider getting your chimney repaired before it's too late. Chips and cracks are the early warning signs of your chimney deteriorating.

Rediscover the warmth a working fireplace can give by putting it to use. If you want to begin using a fireplace to warm up your house in the winter but haven't done so in years, let's take a look at your chimney to see if it needs repairing first.
GOOD TO KNOW
HOW TO KNOW WHEN YOUR CHIMNEY NEEDS REPAIR WORK
If you live in an older home, such as the wartime bungalows you can find close to Lake Ontario in Burlington, Oakville, Hamilton and even Mississauga, then you should search your chimney for any damages or visible signs of aging. Below we've explained three helpful key points you should look for before picking up the phone.
CRACKED MORTAR JOINTS
If you begin to notice the mortar joints between the bricks starting to crack, you'll want to service your chimney - especially if the chimney connects to a fireplace in the basement. By having chipped mortar joints throughout the length of your chimney, you're creating spots for cold air and moisture to enter. This can begin to create an extremely cold or hot basement depending on the season. With the added moisture, it's a breeding ground for mold.
BADLY CHIPPED BRICKS
With our distinct seasons in Southern Ontario, the bricks of chimneys are exposed to varying extremes of elements. These changes can lead to badly chipped bricks which in turn can lead to poor structural integrity. If you notice badly chipped bricks, contact a contractor from Bricktown Masonry to inspect the structural integrity of your chimney.
DAMAGE INSIDE CHIMNEY
Shine a light up the chimney and see if any bricks on the inside have been damaged, especially on the side attached to your home. Damaged bricks on the inside of your chimney can lead to leaks into other areas of your home which can be deadly. This is due to the fact that carbon monoxide can find its way into your living spaces, which may become a life-threatening situation.
BENEFITS OF CHIMNEY REPAIR AND CHIMNEY MAINTENANCE
Don't overlook your chimney. Fireplaces and their chimneys should be inspected regularly. Either in the spring after continuous use over the winter or before the winter. Here are the most important reasons why you should consider having your chimney serviced to see if any repairs or other maintenance tasks are required.
A chimney which is in need of a repair or maintenance is a fire hazard. A build up of soot and other flammable material can lead to a deadly fire. Protect your family and loved ones with regular maintenance.
A chimney with cracks and holes could potentially be improperly venting the smoke. The smoke and CO2 could be leaking into other areas of the home without you noticing. This could lead to health issues and poor living conditions.
Improve the look of your home without needing to completely rebuild it. A well maintained chimney can add character to the home and significantly increase the curb appeal. Many first-time homeowners are looking for this sense of character lost in today's modern builds.
