While the brickwork may be the last thing on your mind when it comes to your fireplace’s functionailty, keeping these critical pieces repaired will help keep any other issues from arising down the road. Midtown Chimney technicians are qualified in determining what is happening with the bricks surrounding your fireplace. Common brick issues include:


Cracked bricks can occur with thermal expansion and contraction over time. Once bricks begin to crack, it leaves more space for miosture to settle and cause further damage to the structual integrity of the fireplace.


Spalling, one of the most common brick issues, is caused by exessive moisture. It makes the brick surface peel and crumble, or come off in flakes. 

Mortar Deterioration:

The motar is what holds the bricks together and over time can begin to deteriorate. When this starts to happen, the bricks are no longer being held in safely and will become loose or fall out. 


This white, powdery deposit on the bricks will show up with moisture issues, often caused by water-soluble salts. Because bricks are so porous, meaning they adsorb moisture, this deposit is an indication of necessary repairs are on the horizon.
