We Fix Leaky Chimneys & Keep Water Out For The Long Haul
Chimney leaks are nothing to take lightly. If water gains access to your chimney’s interior, it can quickly destroy the chimney and damage nearby areas of the home as well. But if you don’t know how water’s making its way in — or worse, if you don’t know water is making its way in — you certainly can’t fix the leak. Be in the know with Firesafe Chimney Services!
We perform level one, two, and three chimney inspections and can quickly identify and work to resolve chimney leaks. During a chimney inspection, our Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA)– and National Fireplace Institute (NFI)-certified technicians will check all of the components of the chimney and look for any signs of water entry. If water’s making its way in, we’ll find out where and repair the area ASAP.
Our chimney leak solving services include the following:
- Chimney Waterproofing — How’s the brick of your chimney stack looking? Is it damaged, cracked, and crumbling? Masonry, which is naturally porous, can let even more moisture in when it’s damaged, but we can help. On top of our masonry repair services, we waterproof masonry chimneys using high-quality water-repellent products. Keep water out for years and years — invest in chimney waterproofing.
- Flashing Repair — You know the metal flashing that rests at the bottom of the chimney and the top of the roof? That area is particularly susceptible to damage and leaks, especially if strong winds or animals lift or mess with it, or if water rusts through. If your flashing is lifted, damaged, or letting water into your chimney because of poor installation, we can help by repairing or replacing it with quality flashing that will stand the test of time.
- Crown Repairs & Rebuilds — At the top of the chimney, the crown, a cement slab, seals the deal and prevents water entry. But when the crown cracks, deteriorates, wears thin, or just doesn’t do its job because of poor construction, water flows to the scene and quickly gets to work destroying the chimney. If the crown is responsible for your chimney leak, our team can promptly and professionally repair or rebuild it to keep water out for good.
