Chimney leaks can cost homeowners hundreds if not thousands of dollars if the issue is not resolved immediately. Like any water damage, the problem will get increasingly worse the longer you wait to repair it. If your chimney leaks water when it rains, you need to schedule a chimney inspection as soon as possible.
For leak repairs, we start by inspecting the most common points of entry. More often than not, the cause is damage or deterioration to the chimney cap, crown, masonry, or flashing. Once we have determined the entry route, we’ll explain the best options for repair and get to work on resolving the moisture issue. Since masonry is porous and absorbs water (which can cause moisture damage over time), we recommend having your chimney waterproofed after repair to prevent future water damage.
