Living in the Northeast with four beautiful seasons, as homeowners, we have to pick and choose the appropriate time of year to do outdoor projects on our homes. We know it wouldn't be practical to paint the exterior of our house in the middle of January at 25 degrees, nor would it be a good idea to attempt to replace your roof in the same time period.
Most homeowners think of accomplishing their chimney projects after September 1st when fall is approaching, children are returning to school and we start to think of the heating season in our homes. Fall in the Northeast can have unusual fluctuating temperatures. You could see 85 degree days at the end of September and be cold enough to snow in October. There is no rhyme or reason to the changes of New England weather.
We hope you can keep these things in mind when calling to schedule work for your chimney. As a suggestion the most appropriate time of year to do brick and mortar projects and waterproofing and sealing of brick you will find the weather is most favorable from April until September. The reason being applying water repellent or repairing brick and mortar is best done above 40 degrees.
