Masonry chimney fireplace issue repaired
The purpose of your chimney is to properly vent the products of combustion (smoke) form your home. However, if the integrity of a chimney is compromised, say from a crack, this can be an issue.
If smoke and combustion materials are not vented away from your home they can build up in said cracks, thus causing fire hazards.
Cracks are one of the most common masonry chimney issues!
