What’s Causing Your Chimney Leak & What Can You Do To Stop It?

So you’ve lived everyone’s worst nightmare? The sounds of dripping water in your firebox, the smell of moisture and mold in the air, white patches and discoloration in your masonry, cracks and gaps in your mortar, rust streaks – you’ve got a leak. What do you do? Call Fireplace Safety Services, of course.

Our technicians are certified by the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) and the National Fireplace Institute (NFI) and know where to look for leaks and just what to do once one is found.

Whether your leak is coming from damaged masonry, a poorly laid crown, faulty flashing, or a missing chimney cap, we can make the needed repairs and take preventative measures to keep leaks from showing up in the future.

We Can Waterproof Your Chimney!

Even though we do expert repair work, it’s better to prevent damage whenever possible. Our technicians can apply a professional waterproofing product to your chimney that will keep water from entering the system in the first place. See, many water problems start with water penetrating masonry. Click here to read more about this service and its importance.

We Also Repair & Install Flashing!

The flashing of the chimney system is one of the most common places for water to make its way in. This series of metal strips is designed to seal off the seam where the chimney exits the roof. If we find during an inspection that your flashing could use repair or replacement, we know what to do. We know what techniques work best to provide a watertight seal, and we know which materials can take the abuse of the rain year after year. You can count on our flashing repairs and installations to last. Click here to learn more.

Many, many thanks to Lisa. Her help in organizing the process and Hugh’s help as well as that of the young men who finished the top of the chimney and its interior were remarkable! What a great job you all did!
