Chimney Maintenance?

Maintenance to chimneystacks is usually forgotten about being outside, way up high. However, until we have a problem with water ingress or a damp chimneybreast which raises the question of does the chimneystack need refurbishment. Over time, wear and tear on chimneystacks and pots will reveal itself when we start to notice the damp patches and then they get bigger and bigger.

For instance, a cowl is usually required for a specific purpose, i.e. to overcome the downdraft, prevent birds nesting or prevention from weathering. When the cowl becomes loose or lost your chimney is open to the elements allowing rain, water, wind, sleet and snow to enter the chimney.

Chimneystacks comprising of the cowl, pots, flaunchings and lead flashings will become casualties of our weather over time. Having your chimney revamped will improve its life span, keeping water ingress at bay and the inside of your home cost and warm, as it should be.
