Masonry chimneys need to be repaired quickly when damaged. Water can quickly turn a small repair into a major project.
A leaky chimney can go unnoticed for a long time. Bricks and mortar are like sponges, absorbing water and leaching minerals, which weakens the masonry over time. Cracks in the top of a chimney cause great damage in a matter of just a few years. Those cracks fill with water and then freeze, creating and widening cracks that work their way down the chimney.
