House built in '82. 3 fireplaces, which all group together into one
chimney, but apparantly have seperate flues, as there are 3 outputs on
top of the chimney stack.
Anywhoo, the exterior brick is rotting away. At the start of each
summer, I find small chunks o' brick on my deck, which I suppose were
actually fractured off by water/winter freeze, and then the heat and
wind of summer(house faces a lake - wind gusts are sometimes quite
severe and lasts for hours, and the back of the house has a SW
exposure, and gets lots of heat in the summer).
Anyway.... is there something to seal the bricks with, or should I just
let it continue to rot and let the insurance cover it when it
collapses? I think it will probably last another 10 years, but it seems
the spring/summer chunk o brick pile grows larger each year.
