Signs That It's Time For A Chimney Repair

If you're not used to checking your chimney for damage, you may overlook common indicators that it's time to schedule a chimney repair. We've outlined some of the top signs that it's time for you to call us at Don Vanderhoof Masonry serving Erie, PA:
  1. White Staining / Efflorescence
  2. Damaged Mortar Joints
  3. Rust
  4. Shaling & Spalling
  5. Deteriorated Chimney Crown
  6. Wallpaper Damage
White staining, also known as efflorescence, rust, and wallpaper damage are strong indicators that there is too much moisture in your chimney and within the masonry. Only a professional chimney repair contractor can inspect your chimney and see if the flue lining needs to be replaced. Damaged mortar joints, shaling, and spalling are a bit easier to indicate, because you'll see pieces of the chimney collecting indoors, and outside around the chimney's structure. Damage to the chimney crown is probably the most difficult to spot, however, you can go on your roof to take a look.
