In this post, we will discuss some of the ways to determine if your chimney is leaking. Advanced Chimeny Inc offers a variety of services to repair your damaged chimney, To learn more about our service, request an appointment online.
  1. Missing Chimney Cover: If your chimney cover is damaged or missing, you are susceptible to experiencing chimney damage. Water, debris, and animals can enter your chimney and cause damage to the foundation.
  2. Improper Flashing: Flashing creates a watertight connection between the roof and chimney. Over time, the metal flashing becomes less effective and may become more susceptible to leaks.
  3. Cracked Brick or Mortar Joint Damage: Damaged brick or mortar joints can cause leaking. In most cases, when your brick or mortar joint is damaged, they hold in moisture more effectively.
  4. Damaged Chimney Crown: Rain can run through a cracked chimney crown and cause damage to the foundation.  If a damaged chimney crown is left untreated, it can lead to extensive damage which may require a complete replacement of your chimney.
