Chimney Repairs in Cumbria
Given they have to deal with fires being lit at the bottom of them, while the wind and rain batters the top, the chimneys on our home put up with a lot. That’s why it’s vital to ensure they’re well maintained and in good working order.
Chimneys are often the most exposed part of a property. Over time pointing and weather flaunching can fail to allow rain to penetrate the stack; in combination with frost, deterioration is accelerated. If neglected the stack will degenerate and eventually become unsafe and dangerous.
If spotted in time new weather flaunching and pointing will extend the longevity of the stack but from time to time it may be necessary to rebuild the stack in order to ensure its permanence. It is not just the weather that can cause serious harm, chimney fires can do untold damage.
We can provide a complete chimney repair and restoration service where a chimney has become damaged or unsuitable for use.
