Your chimney works hard for your home, but it probably doesn't get the attention it deserves. For example, when was the last time you even looked at it, let alone examined it for wear and tear? I neglected my chimney and ended up having to replace siding, trim, and even some of the framing. The paint and caulking had worn out and water had gotten behind the siding, which rotted out much of the wood. Give your chimney some love!
