Along the mortar lines

In reply to chimney crumbling by C Plaza on December 14th, 1999 10:11 PM [Go to top of thread]

I also have a chimney that is "rotting." The mortar in the basement is dusty, and several bricks are pretty soft. Tuck pointing the external portion was the suggestion offered by the masonry professionals, but I was unable to obtain an explaination as to why this is happening. I am assuming good brick was used (age 80+yrs). Could it be water, or bad mortar mix?
All help and suggestions are greatly appreciated!
