Chimney pots become unstable when the flaunching
decays, posing a hazard to passers-by.
The flaunching is the mortar that holds the chimney pots in place and also protects the top of the stack from the elements, frost can cause cracks in the flaunching. Harborne Roofing can replace the flaunching and secure the pots, or replace them too if they have sustained damage.
Chimney repointing is needed when the internal breast of the chimney becomes porous and the mortar begins to perish. By repointing the chimney you are not only preventing water ingress but are preventing any movement in the bricks.
Chimney stacks should be checked often for any problems. A chimney in poor condition can cause a number of different issues from damp in the rooms below, to water ingress. An unstable chimney is a danger to the passers-by. In most circumstances it is more economical to remove a stack that isn’t been used altogether rather than to repair or regularly maintain a structurally unsound chimneystack.
