What causes bricks to crumble?
Bricks Chimneys and masonry mortar that are properly made and assembled have minimal maintenance requirements. However if improperly constructed, cracks in the chimney and spalling of the bricks can quickly begin. Many homes in the Kansas City metro have a masonry chimney built from reclaimed bricks.
In other words, the rebuilt chimney is constructed with 60 year old bricks. This will influence how soon tuck pointing and masonry chimney rebuilding will be needed. These older bricks are softer than modern masonry and a chimney leak is often the result of soft bricks cracking, after soaking up water. Chimney waterproofing of the masonry can postpone the crumbling or spalling of brick chimneys and has the added benefit of helping with chimney leaks.
How long does waterproofing last?
Chimney waterproofing is needed to keep them dry. This is because a damp chimney that freezes becomes damaged from the expansion of water turning to ice. Chimney waterproofing will last as long as ten years, or longer, depending on the condition of the chimney when waterproofing is applied and the quality of the chimney waterproofing product. Full Service Chimney Repair Service applies waterproofing to every chimney rebuild and Chimney Masonry Repair to maximize the life of the chimney.
What is tuckpointing?
When tuck pointing a chimney is needed, the mason begins by removing the loose mortar between the bricks of the chimney and replacing it with new masonry mortar. If your masonry brick chimney has solid brickwork, but the mortar is starting to crack and come loose, tuck pointing your chimney may be an option to brick chimney rebuilding. When a mason tuck points the masonry and then applies waterproofing, chimney damage may not escalate to the point of needing chimney rebuilding.
Is Complete Rebuilding an Option?
Yes. Chimney rebuilding frequently costs over $10,000. It is for this reason that we recommend annual chimney care. If you repair chimney masonry when issues are first discovered, then costly chimney rebuilding can be avoided.
