A chimney with spalling bricks is not only an eyesore, but it’s also a safety hazard. Spalling bricks mean that your chimney is in poor health, and should be inspected and repaired right away. If you still have questions about what spalling is and why it matters, we’ve explained it here. When you’re ready, give the team at Chimney Champions a call for repairs.
