We’re no strangers to hot summer days here, so rainy afternoons can be a welcome relief from the heat. That being said, it’s important to ensure your chimney is prepared for any harsh weather that might come our way! By equipping your system with preventative equipment and by regularly investing in inspections and repair work from our certified sweeps, you guarantee yourself a healthier, stronger system all around.
If your chimney hasn’t been getting the care it deserves, count on our experts to help you out. We can repair leaks in a hurry and will ensure you’re all set with the tools and chimney parts necessary for keeping water out for good. Check out all we offer below!
One of the most common ways for water to enter is through the flashing. Flashing is the piece that safeguards the area where your roof and chimney meet. When in tip top shape, flashing does wonders in keeping water and excess moisture out of this especially vulnerable area. Unfortunately, when it falters, water can get in quite rapidly.
We can repair your flashing or, in more extreme cases, replace it entirely, so you’ll be all set and good to go in no time. No matter what issue you have faced, we’re certain we can help and, throughout our many years of service, you can trust that we’ve seen it all! Between animal tampering, poor installation work, weather damage, rust, and more, flashing can face a lot, but these damages are no match for our team. Give us a call now, so that we can help you out.
CHIMNEY CAP INSTALLATION
Other times, the issue can lie with a poorly-fitted or broken down chimney cap. Like flashing, chimney caps do wonders when it comes to keeping out rain, sleet, and snow, but only when they’re properly installed and in good shape. Don’t give water an easy pathway into your home… have us look your chimney cap over right away! This is an easy and cost-effective way to make a big impact on the health of your chimney. There’s no time to lose, so let us know of any problems, and we’ll be on our way in a hurry.
Another big reason why chimneys leak is because they aren’t protected with waterproofing products. Your brickwork and mortar will break down when water gets absorbed into them, causing leaks to form and your structure to weaken significantly. We’re determined not to let that happen! We use agents that are specifically formulated to work well with chimneys. This means that they both seal the masonry, keeping water out, while allowing fumes and pre-absorbed moisture to vent out. Most store-bought sealers and paints can’t do this effectively.
