From many years of experience, Michael Power is aware that many chimneys can be overlooked in home restorations. However, due to expansion & contraction from heat & cold, sulphate attack from soot & water, exposure to weather conditions caused by wind, rain, frost and sun, a chimney can be in great need of repair & danger of collapsing.
Michael Power is skilled at rebuilding or repointing chimneys. He will use brick of similar dimensions, texture, colour & size but reasonably hard & well burnt as it is the darker coloured bricks that are the most durable. A lime mortar will be used to match the chosen brick type with weather location of the chimney & future sulphate conditions also taken into consideration.
