The following are some signs that you should contact Garlock-French Corporation for your chimney needs.

  • Missing Bricks and Mortar. Over time, bricks and mortar do break down. If your chimney is fairly new, it might be a problem with the installation. If your chimney is quite aged, it is probable that the problem just lies in the age of the bricks and mortar. With missing bricks and mortar, the stability of the chimney will be compromised, making it essential that you contact the roofing contractors in Minneapolis at Garlock-French Corporation for a new chimney.
  • Spalling Bricks and Mortar. Spalling bricks and mortar can also cause structural damage. Water is able to more easily get into the flues and the St. Paul roofing if the bricks and mortar experience spalling.
  • Leaks in Flashing. The flashing is what will protect the sheathing, walls, ceiling, framing, and more from water damage. If the flashing is damaged, in addition to other problems with the chimney, a new one might be in order.
