Chimneys have traditionally been built from brick, and they also frequently contain an interior tile liner. The liner assists with the flow of flue gases and helps prevent creosote, the black residue created from wood burning, from leaching into the pores of brick and mortar. Although liners have been used for many years, older chimneys may only have brick construction.
Chimney exteriors need care. As sturdy as brick is, it’s a natural substance that deteriorates over time. Storms and fallen tree limbs can cause damage. Water seeping into pores and then freezing can loosen mortar and cause bricks to crack, and creosote penetration may also be a problem.
