Chimneys need to be well maintained at all times as they can create massive problems if left to deteriorate. Brickwork, stonework, mortar and lead flashing will decay over time so it is very important to keep out a watchful eye and ensure chimney repairs and maintenance are carried out when required.
When mortar is left to crumble away it leaves the brick/stonework with no support and this, in some cases, can lead to chimneys collapsing. This can create massive damage to your roof and property but more importantly this could seriously injure you, your family or passers-by.
Go Green - Go Lead
Lead is a natural material which is highly recycled and can be reused due to the longevity of the material especially when compared with its synthetically produced petrochemical made alternatives i.e. Sarnafill, Asphalt and GRP Fibreglass ect.
Even the recycling process of lead is more environmentally friendly as less heat is needed and there is no need for any to go to waste. Today's alternative materials can fail after 10-15 years and because of the way they are manufactured and their need for early replacement - they have both a negative cost and environmental impact.
