Chimney repairs – what can go wrong?

Downdraught is another common problem that requires expert repair. As the name implies, downdraught is a problem where the chimney allows wind to blow downwards and into your home.

Consequences of chimney failure
When structural problems occur, your property is exposed to a variety of risks, some of which can be deadly.
The chimney’s brickwork should be surveyed at appropriate intervals. If it fails, then depending on the type of property, you risk deadly fumes entering other rooms in the house.
Likewise when gaps appear in the structure, pests and vermin like birds, rats and mice can make their way inside. There are recommended products available to act as a guard against these animals. If you choose to fit the wrong products as they’re cheaper – the chimney may be condemned.
