Damp around Chimneys.
If you’re a Baby Boomer or Middle Aged you will have witnessed the transition to PVC rubber sealed windows. Whereby old wooden Windows were invariably draughty modern Windows are usually air tight. Although this is generally a good thing it has also created a lot of problems with Condensation, both in Rooms and Roof-spaces,(Its worth keeping this in mind.
Chimney Breasts & Condensation
Internal Chimney Breasts are notorious for Condensation, which invariably deceives the untrained eye. “Oh no it’s definitely not Condensation”(Which is what most say) As most conflate damp patches on Chimney breasts as water penetration. Generally this type of problem can often be caused by Condensation in the room Due to thermal bridging at the flue, or in the case of a “Cold Roof” (You only need roof ventilation in a cold roof) condensation on the chimney above in the roof space or elsewhere in the roof space so please be careful – First Check for Roof, Chimney or flashing damage? It’s better to prove it’s not condensation first as Roof Repairs can cost more than a vent or two. Unfortunately we don’t fix condensation problems if you require trickle vents on your PVC Windows I would recommend Alan Hall. If you’re quite sure its not Condensation please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org explaining clearly what you would like done. Please include photo’s & details etc and I will try and help you out.
We carry out contracts with major Scaffolding & others with none. We do Rebuilds & Partial Rebuilds we Repoint, Re-Render & Re-Point. We also install and Re-install many kinds of Chimneys Caps. All these repairs cost money so make sure that you intend to use your chimney in the Future or you could be wasting your money. You could for example rebuild repoint or recap your Chimney only to find that the Problem(caused by condensation) still persists. So if you are not using or intending to use the chimney in the future the sensible thing is to remove it and fill and close the Flu’s with granular insulation.
