Need Chimney Repair in RI?

Chimneys, although sturdy structures, are susceptible to deterioration over time due to various factors.

The overall cause of chimney damage is the weather.

Whenever moisture infiltrates the chimney system through cracks, gaps, or faulty flashing water damage and a range of other problems can result. Rain or snow can cause the bricks and mortar or a chimney to break down through a process called spalling. The cycles of freezing & thawing year after year causes any water trapped within the masonry to expand and contract, leading to cracking and crumbling of the bricks and mortar. This is when more water can seep in and cause water damage or structural issues.

If the chimney liner inside of your chimney flue grows too old it may become cracked and become a threat for either water damage or a chimney fire.

damaged chimney falling apart requires chimney rebuild

Every chimney will require some type of chimney repair eventually. The age and location of the chimney are the main factors that determine how long a chimney can go before it needs to be repaired. The older the chimney the more wear and tear the chimney has seen. Where the chimney is located in a place that harbors moisture, has a lot of inclement weather or harsh temperatures… the chimney will be more likely to degrade faster.

Rhode Island can have a lot of moisture in the air during the warmer months. In the winter the temperatures can get low and the snow can get high.
