When is the best time to repair a chimney in Toronto?

Not sure when to book a chimney repair in Toronto? Like everything, it depends on the situation.


If your chimney is leaking, you shouldn’t wait to repair it. Call a mason immediately for an emergency repair. But keep in mind if you’re doing this repair in the winter, you may need to call the masons back for a more permanent solution when the weather gets warmer.


Cold weather and chimney repairs do not go hand in hand. In fact, winter is most likely to blame for your masonry problems.


So, when is the right time to do a chimney repair in Toronto?


Provided it isn’t raining, spring and fall provide the best conditions for chimney repairs. The warmer weather provides the ideal conditions for the mortar to set and good mortar is the secret to increasing the longevity of your masonry project.


As the snow starts to melt, take a quick look around your home and notice the condition of your bricks and mortar. If you’re noticing signs of wear and tear, it’s probably time to call a mason.


Calling early for an estimate will put your project at the front of the line so your home will be winter-ready when everyone else is scrambling to get it winterized in the fall.
