Chimney Repairs Ayr – Rebuilds
Chimney repairs Ayr. Our unique approach to lining chimneys is undertaken by our team of highly skilled chimney builders. We can rebuild a chimney stack from the ground up or reinstate a stack that was incorrectly reduced in height, supplying a matching brick or sandstone style and assembly techniques from similar aged property’s or flues in adjacent property’s. Chimney rebuilding is common on period property’s where the top course of bricks or mid-feathers have spalling on them and need repairing before lining the chimney. Spalling is where winter weather has corroded the face of the brick and allows moisture to penetrate the brick structure and the brick starts to thin, making it weak and therefore posing a risk that the chimney will lose its structural strength.
