One of my chimneys is in a sad state of repair. Motar and pieces of brick
are missing in spots. Would it be that difficult for me to repair my own
chimney or should I call a professional to repoint it?
Its a bit late in the year for it now, the weather is getting colder. This
is a project I'm planning for next spring.
at least get it professionally inspected if its a working chimney for
fireplace or flue vents.
if outside appearance is poor the interior may have troubles
I nearly died from carbon monoxide poisioning from a bad chimney cap!
Pieces of brick missing would lead me to suspect improper choice of
brick. Apparently some are not suitable for such exterior use- water
penetrates and freezes, splitting the bricks. I've seen a large
in E. Norwalk CT literally pulverized that way.
