CHIMNEY REPAIRS

Chimney Repairs in Gloucester, Cheltenham & Forest Of Dean

At the peak of the roof and often forgotten the chimney brickwork can often need attention. Chimney repointing is a common practice but how do you know that you need it? In most cases you will require a rooftop vantage point to identify any chimney issues. Damaged mortar lines causing bricks to loosen can allow moisture to enter the property. Visible cracks or miss shaped structure seen from ground level is a concern. When carrying out inspections we always take photos to show our clients and allow them to make a decision.
If your chimneys bricks are in good condition then a simple repointing is likely the best option. By repointing it ensures smaller issues are resolved before they worsen extending your the life span of the Chimney. Chimney repointing not only improves the physical structure but also appearance.
When repointing a chimney it is also a great time to inspect any lead work surrounding it. Leadwork can also suffer due to movement in the block work, disturbing joints increasing the risk of leaks. In some cases it may be wise to replace lead flashing around the chimney too. Costings can vary largely dependent on whether a scaffold tower is required for safe working. Not always needed however but in the interest of safety a scaffold is sometimes required.
