As the years go by, the mortar will usually degrade quicker on a chimney vs. the walls on your house. Eventually, water will get in around the very top of the chimney. This happens because your chimney is fully exposed to all weather elements. If the bricks are in good shape (no chipping or cracking) then only repointing of masonry is required. If there is visible damage to the brick or stone, then brick or stone replacement is needed which may involve a complete chimney rebuild.
Window Sill Repairs
Sills can be made of bricks, limestone or concrete. If any window or door sills become damaged it is important for immediate repair to avoid water getting in around the sills. Once water gets in behind the sills it can damage your wood framing, insulation, etc. allowing water to also penetrate the interior of your home.
