The longer you put off leak-related repairs, the weaker your system will become, and there’s a long list of issues excess moisture can trigger if not addressed as soon as possible.
Now, there are a number of things that could be the cause of your issues. Fortunately, our chimney leak troubleshooting services are exhaustive, and we guarantee our certified and experienced techs won’t stop searching until they get to the bottom of it.
Common Causes of Chimney Leaks
What might be the culprit behind your issues? Here are some of the more common causes of chimney leaks and water damage:
- Damaged Masonry: If your masonry has gaps, cracks, missing bricks, or crumbling mortar, then water is likely breaking things down. And the more openings that are present, the easier access moisture has to the rest of your system, too. In these cases, brick/masonry repair services, as well as pointing services, will be in order. We would also strongly recommend chimney waterproofing to avoid issues down the line.
- Rusted/Damaged Flashing: Your flashing ensures water can’t sneak through the area where your roof and chimney meet up. This spot is vulnerable because the two materials expand and contract at different rates. If your flashing has been damaged at all, or if it’s showing signs of rusting, sections of it may need to be replaced.
- Broken/Missing Chimney Caps: A chimney cap is essential when it comes to keeping water out of your flue. It literally covers the opening, so without one in place, water would simply go straight down into your chimney and pool on your smoke shelf or firebox floor (wreaking havoc on your liner the whole way down). But not to worry because we can install a new chimney cap that will keep water out.
- Cracked/Damaged Crown or Chase Cover: Your chimney crown (or if you have a prefab fireplace, your chase cover) works to cover your chimney opening, while also sending water away from the sides of the chimney (or chase). If yours seems to be suffering, a rebuild or replacement piece may be in order.
