Because chimneys are out of reach to most homeowners (except those with a head for heights!), their maintenance is often ignored.
However, just like any part of your home’s exterior, they are subject to a battering from high winds, extreme temperatures and moisture, so, over time, the brickwork pointing becomes weakened with the danger that, eventually, the chimney stack could literally be blown down.
Although, from the ground, a chimney looks quite small, the weight of all that brickwork and chimney pots is enough to cause serious damage to your roof, should it collapse in extreme weather.
That’s why it’s important to have your chimney and roof inspected at regular intervals - say, every 10 years or so. This is especially true for older buildings.
