The mortar in our 25-year-old chimney is starting to crack and now leaks into our home if it rains hard.
I assume we're probably in need of repointing, but a contractor that has done roof work for us before says that caulking in some silicon into those cracks will do the trick.
Is that an acceptable solution? Or will we just be dealing with this again in 6 months?
Want to make sure they're not just trying to make a quick buck.
