Top Tips on How to Know When Your Vancouver Chimney Needs Repointing


Being in such a vulnerable position on the top of your house, your chimney is not only exposed to the harsh elements of wind, rain and sun, but it is also out of sight and is therefore often neglected. However, ensuring that your chimney is in prime working condition and that all of the brickwork is undamaged should be a top priority for homeowners everywhere.

Identifying Damages

Damage to the mortar joints of your Vancouver chimney stack is likely to be caused by weathering and erosion and is therefore difficult to prevent. Furthermore, the natural ageing process of the brickwork may be enough to cause small cracks to appear in the mortar joints. If there are visibly loose bricks, damaged masonry or cracked mortar joints on your chimney, it is highly recommended that you call in a specialist to repoint the brickwork.
