Winter weather has taken its toll on Georgia this year and now it's time for homeowners to prepare for spring maintenance and cleaning. As spring approaches, so will another band of weather-related issues for the home. Rainy weather can bring homeowners a whole new host of problems. Water damage from chimney leaks can lead to expensive repairs down the road.
Rain Pans for the Chimney
Rain pans are designed to encase a pre-fab fireplace's chimney top, preventing water from entering the chimney chase and firebox. Rain pans are typically metal or comprised of galvanized steel and function as a roof for the chimney chase. Because rain pans are in constant contact with water they tend to rust easily and should be inspected for holes periodically.
Overall water is the leading cause of chimney damage. Water that causes moisture in the chimney can also cause deterioration and severe damage that is not only costly but dangerous as well. To be sure that your chimney is ready for spring showers, contact a local experienced professional chimney sweep.
