Stone Restoration in the Fall and Winter

The end of the year is the ideal time to inspect, and if necessary, repair your chimney. These structures are essential to keeping the temperature at the proper level for comfort and safety. Chimneys are constantly exposed to the cold, wet and harsh elements so common in the Midwest.  The always changing and unpredictable weather can lead to dampness permeating throughout your chimney. This moisture can cause structural damage to the exterior as well as the interior. The time to repair such damage is right now, before it gets colder outside.

Now is the Ideal Time for Repairs

If there has been storm damage or a chimney fire at your business or home, you need to hire professionals who can get your chimney up to code. The restoration or repair of a chimney can be very delicate work. Fortunately, if you live in or around Chicago, you have options. The experts at Arrow Masonry and Exteriors, located in Palatine, have the experience and knowledge to handle all your stone restoration needs.

Arrow repairs many different types of facades including limestone, sandstone and terra cotta, among others. Because stone is a porous material it needs special attention by professionals to keep it looking and functioning at its very best. With the passage of many seasons stone becomes increasingly discolored or damaged due to the use of deicing salts and age. Over time the salt will erode the surface of the stone making it less attractive. It will also become less safe and more prone to damage and leaking.
