Chimney Leaks

Do You Have A Leaky Chimney?

Is a chimney leak wreaking havoc on your home and causing extensive damage? If you’ve noticed pooling water in your fireplace, water-damaged ceilings and walls surrounding your chimney, or water in your attic, there’s a good chance a chimney leak is to blame. Typically, when a chimney leak presents itself to the homeowner, the damage has already occurred. That’s why it’s imperative that you stay on top of these things by keeping up with annual inspections.

“My husband and I were very impressed with Chimney Solutions. Jackson did our initial inspection and was kind, professional and responded quickly whenever I had questions, which was a lot! Dominic and Jake installed our gas logs and did a great job and were both very nice. Plus our gas log kits look beautiful and give off an amazing amount of heat, yay! Will definitely recommend and hire again.”

“The service from Chimney Solutions was courteous and professional. Chris did an inspection and was thorough in explaining his findings. We needed a cleaning and some minor repairs around our gas log set. David was professional, kept everything cleaned up nicely, efficient, and took some extra care to make the gas logs look nice. They were able to squeeze us in just in time to have the fire feeling nice for Christmas morning! Will return to chimney solutions for any future work. Thrilled with the results!”

Let’s Talk Fixing Chimney Leaks.

During an annual inspection, we’ll check for any signs of water intrusion and check the most common problem areas:
1
Chimney Cap
The chimney cap sits at the top of the flue to seal it off and protect it against moisture intrusion. Unfortunately, caps can come loose or undergo damage that renders them ineffective. Read more about caps here.
2
Chimney Crown
The chimney crown is the cement slab that rests at the top of your chimney stack and closes it off from the outside. Many times we see leaks start in this area due to improper construction or weather damage. If the crown is not properly built or if it has cracks and holes, water will quickly make its way down into the chimney itself. Learn more about the crown here.
3
Flashing
Metal sheets are layered where the chimney and roof meet, as this is a partiare designed to provide a barrier against water. Many things can render flashing ineffective at keeping water out, from improper installation and poor materials to strong winds, house settling, animal tampering, and water damage. If your flashing is to blame for your leak, we put a stop to it with new flashing. We also install thru-wall flashing – click here to learn more!
4
Damaged Masonry
Damaged and deteriorating masonry is a leading cause of chimney leaks, and as damage worsens, the masonry allows more and more water in. One of the best ways to prevent leaks in your chimney is to have the masonry professionally waterproofed. Masonry waterproofing provides a vapor-permeable seal that will prevent water from wicking into your masonry and causing damage to the brick and mortar itself. If you are already experiencing leaks due to masonry damage, we can make the necessary repairs and waterproof the chimney to prevent future damage. Learn more about waterproofing here.
