Chimneys Gone Wild!

Chimneys are built strong and built to last, but they’re certainly not indestructible. They’re vulnerable to the outside elements — like extreme temperature changes and heavy rain, sleet, or snow — and they can deteriorate quite rapidly if they’re not well-maintained and protected.

Don’t believe us? We’ve compiled some pictures to show you exactly what can happen — we call it “Chimneys Gone Wild!” These chimneys all had to be rebuilt because repair was no longer possible by the time we got to them.

So take a look below and make sure that you’re keeping up with your annual chimney inspections. That’s the #1 way to keep your chimney from going wild!
