Preventing Water Damage

Your Shield Against Unwanted Surprises

Your home’s chimney plays a crucial role in venting smoke and gases, but it is often exposed to the elements, making it susceptible to water damage. Water intrusion can lead to a myriad of issues, ranging from structural damage to mold growth.

Below are services we offer to combat these unwanted surprises. 

Waterproofing Sealant

Applying a high-quality waterproofing sealant is crucial to protect the masonry from water damage. The sealant creates a barrier that repels water while still allowing the chimney to breathe. Prior to applying the sealant, ensure the chimney is clean, free of dirt, and completely dry.

Flashing Maintenance

Flashing is the metal strip that seals the gap between the chimney and the roofline. Check for damaged or corroded flashing and ensure it is properly installed, providing a tight seal. Replace or repair any faulty flashing to prevent water leaks.

Chimney Cap Installation

A chimney cap is a metal hood that covers the top of the chimney, preventing water, debris, and animals from entering. Installing a chimney cap is an effective measure to keep water out and maintain proper chimney functionality.

Chimney Crown Inspection and Repair

The chimney crown acts as a protective barrier against water intrusion. Regularly inspect it for cracks, deterioration, or missing pieces. If any issues are found, repair or replace the chimney crown promptly.

Regular Maintenance and Inspections

Schedule annual chimney inspections by a professional chimney sweep to identify any potential water damage or maintenance needs. Timely repairs and maintenance can prevent small issues from escalating into larger, costlier problems.
