Is Your Chimney Leaking?


As much as we all love the warm weather that comes with Spring, but it also brings us lots of rain. While it helps to nourish our plants and grass, it can bring lots of troublesome issues for your brickwork and masonry. Chimney leaks are a huge problem and can trigger lasting damage. Fortunately, there are many ways to combat this problem. At Mountain Man Fireplace & Chimney, we know many solutions to help your chimney’s masonry to last a lifetime!

Preventative Maintenance

Now that your chimney is back in optimal condition, it’s time to consider preventative maintenance to avoid any future concerns. A well-built chimney crown, for example, ensures water slopes down and away from your chimney and brickwork. A good chimney cap will stop water from entering your flue and wreaking havoc.

Another important part of your chimney system is the flashing. The flashing seals the area where the roof and chimney meet, and it plays an integral part in keeping water out of your fireplace and your home. Unfortunately, it inevitably cracks, rusts, or separates from the structure and needs to be mended over time. Our team is trained and equipped to fix any of your flashing problems!

Let our professionals help

Lastly, we strongly urge our customers to invest in waterproofing to prevent the masonry from absorbing too much water. As the brickwork soaks in water, it can cause the structure to become weaker. After going through the freeze/thaw process a few times, you’re looking at some big problems to come!
