Clay Tile Inspection
When we inspect your chimney tile, we will typically check-in 3 areas of your chimney. The first place we will check is between the mortar joints. This is the area where clay tiles may erode and lave large spaces between the tiles. Too much heat, chemicals, or moisture can cause the mortar to start to fall apart. The second area that we inspect is the actual clay tile for cracks. Bad weather and poor construction can cause a clay tile to break. Finally, we will check the lining of the clay tiles. Something called spalling will occur that makes the clay flack.
