For Chimney Leak Repairs That Last, Count On Our Professional Crew

It’s on the days when the weather is bad that we’re most likely to use our fireplaces. Let’s face it – there’s nothing much cozier than relaxing by a crackling fire when a blizzard or big thunderstorm is happening outside. That said, it’s these types of weather your chimney needs to be protected from the most, which is why investing in regular professional care is imperative.

Basically… if you want your chimney and fireplace to properly do its job, you have to do what you can to protect it!

Here in Memphis and its surrounding areas, we’re no strangers to rainfall and snow, so chimney leak repairs and preventive maintenance is one job our techs take seriously. If you need care, call in our honest and reliable crew right away.

Why Is My Chimney Leaking?

There are four key areas of your chimney that most affect its relationship with water – the chimney cap, the crown, the flashing, and the masonry. If these areas are in good working order, you can rest assured your chimney and fireplace will stand strong and look great for years to come. But if any of them are damaged or compromised, your system is bound to suffer. Fortunately, we’re equipped to protect them all.

Our leaky chimney repair services include:

 

  • Chimney Cap Installation: The chimney cap protects the top of your flue from water entry, and it works hard to keep out animals and debris, too. Without a properly fitted chimney cap, the flue and fireplace are left completely exposed to water and whatever else may come along.
  • Crown Repairs & Rebuilds: The crown sits at the top of your chimney, extending from its opening to a couple inches past the edge. A properly constructed crown should be sloped downward, to help direct water from the sides of the chimney, and built from a reliable cement-based mixture, so it can stand strong for years.
  • Flashing Repair: The area where your roof meets your chimney is especially vulnerable to water damage. Flashing seals this area, so water can’t easily work its way inside and cause damage.
  • Chimney Waterproofing: Water easily soaks into unprotected brickwork, weakening it significantly and causing your entire masonry structure to suffer. Then there’s the freeze/thaw process, which is common in our area and triggers even more deterioration and cracking. Professional waterproofing helps keep that excess moisture out.
