If you own an older home that has an outdoor chimney, then you may notice the mortar that holds the bricks in place breaking apart over time. When this mortar disintegrates completely, then your chimney can fall apart. This means that a repair must be made in a timely manner. Tuckpointing is your best option, because this involves replacing the chimney mortar. Otherwise the structure needs to be completely rebuilt. Masonry contractors can complete the tuckpointing for you.
