Leaks & Water Damage Lead To Big Problems

masonry chimney with nice capIf water is given access to your chimney, you are going to wind up facing dangerous and costly issues in the future. The more moisture your system is exposed to, the worse the issues will be. You might even wind up facing the freeze/thaw cycle when winter arrives.

What is the freeze/thaw process? This happens when the absorbed water in your brickwork freezes and expands. It causes your chimney structure to expand and crack. As temperatures rise again, the water will melt, and your structure will settle. This puts a lot of strain on your system. If this cycle occurs multiple times a season, you are looking at a lot of damages. Excess moisture can also trigger rust and decay, meaning you will eventually have to deal with repairs. You will likely notice cracks, holes, and gaps, all of which make your chimney and home susceptible to gas leaks, fires, and smoke exposure.

All in all, worn down masonry is unsightly, unsafe, and costly to address. Fortunately, our team can help by providing preventative maintenance to make leaks and water damage a thing of the past with chimney cap installation, waterproofing, flashing repair, and more.
