With many homeowners returning to the use of real fires, we are seeing an ever-increasing demand for chimney stack repairs.
Chimney stacks are probably the most vulnerable area of the roof, so maintaining them, especially on older properties, is really important. As the highest point of the roof, chimney stacks suffer the worst of the weather and weak points often develop over time especially to the leadwork at the base of the stack.
We find that most clients forget about their chimney as it is on the roof and out of your eyesight, the issue is that if you do not pay attention to your chimney and have regular maintenance checks then loose pieces of masonry go undetected and they can become unstable, these loose pieces will need replacing at the earliest signs of deterioration to avoid a full repair.
Here at JK Chelmsford Builders we always advise our clients to have a yearly maintenance check to avoid any nasty surprises in the winter times. We can inspect and carry out full repairs to chimney stacks including leadwork, re-pointing and brickwork to ensure that all areas of your roof remain in top condition.
JK Chelmsford Builders use the best materials to repair your chimney stack. Quite often this can eb done with sand, cement and lime mixed mortar.
We also specialise at re-pointing chimney stacks in properties both old and new.
