Is your chimney safe?
Why it’s important to keep your chimney in a good state of repair.
Chimneys can be one of the most troublesome parts of a roof if not maintained and repaired correctly. Over time wind and rain eat away at the inner render and mortar joints, threatening a stack’s structural integrity and leaving it in danger of collapse. A side-effect of this weakening is leakage of gases into the building. This very serious problem can lead in extreme cases to carbon monoxide poisoning.
Damaged chimneys are prone to allowing moisture into the roof space and into the interior walls, causing significant dampness and damage to internal plasterwork and ceilings.
During high winds and storms, poorly maintained chimneys can also have a nasty habit of falling down causing dreadful consequences to surrounding property and people.
