Parging is the process of applying a masonry-based mortar to interior or exterior walls made of block, brick or stone. In some cases, parging is done to simply create a finished, attractive look to a structure. Concrete blocks and poured concrete walls often have a rougher texture and may need parging to provide a smoother appearance. In other cases, this method is used to protect a building and keep mortar from failing. While it is not a waterproofing agent, it can help keep water out of your house or business. If done incorrectly, this process can actually trap water between the exterior and the parge coat so it’s important to use an experienced contractor.
Chimneys are often one of the first elements of a home to deteriorate due to the constant exposure to the elements and the freezing and thawing that can wreak havoc on the brick and mortar. Over time, the brickwork and lining of the chimney may become damaged due to various reasons. Here are some of the common signs that indicate your Ottawa chimney may need repairs:
If you see any of the problems listed, you should get your chimney inspected before it threatens the safety of your home and leads to more costly repairs.
