Chimneys are far from the passive black holes that most people assume them to be. They perform several vital functions, and their simple appearance misrepresents their complex construction and performance requirements.
A chimney deteriorated by constant exposure to the weather can be a potential safety hazard.READ MORE

Old chimneys might not even have a liner. Mortar and bricks are loose and falling, and moisture can leek through to the home's interior walls.READ MORE
