Fireplace Sweeping/Repairs and Chimney Crowns/Masonry Repairs in Reston, VA
Fireplaces/Chimneys are standards in most home construction. They can be functional as well as architectural. As your home ages, (other than the roof of your home), the chimney masonry takes a beating each and every day. Chimneys are porous and they get beat-up through extended contact with heat from the sun, rain, sleet, or snow which causes a freeze and thaw process. Small cracks in the chimneys masonry become larger when rain, sleet, or snow, becomes frozen causing the cracks to expand. As the temperatures rise, the once smaller cracks become larger specifically during the thaw process. These cracks allow the elements into and through the masonry, which causes structural damage; this is a normal occurrence here in Virginia. When the masonry chimneys are left unrepaired, the bricks and mortar between them begin to fall apart which in turns causes mildew, mold, and an unsightly chimney. Not only do the bricks start to fall apart but also they begin to look bad, becoming structurally unsound and in most cases, impair the functionality of a potential heat source in your home.
