The three main materials used for fixing Chimneys;



Bricks: Fireclay bricks are the best choice for chimney repairs because they are heat-resistant and durable.


Mortar: Mortar should be a mix of Portland cement, lime, and sand. This will provide a strong bond between the bricks and ensure that the chimney is structurally sound.


Sealants: A high-temperature silicone sealant should be used to seal any cracks or gaps in the chimney. This will help prevent water from entering the chimney and causing further damage.
