How can water damage affect your chimney?
Bricks take in water especially if the mortar is damaged in any way; cracked, missing pieces, or worn away. During the winter when water is absorbed by the bricks, it will freeze, expanding any cracks, and later destroying bricks in a process called spalling. Even if your bricks aren’t observably damaged, it’s likely they will be weakened causing them to no longer provide sufficient support or structural integrity of your chimney. To prevent this, schedule our team to do an inspection.
What Causes Chimney Leaks?
Many things contribute when looking at the cause of leaks. Inside chimneys there are many things that can go wrong; If done wrong by nonprofessionals, or if a bad storm/hurricane hits, it can result in leaks that cost thousands in repairs if left untreated.
- Crown – If the crown is broken, water will flow into the flue lining from the roof.
- Chimney Cap – A damaged Chimney Cap or a non-existent cap will allow water to flow in from the roof.
- Flashing – Typically if installed improperly the seal in between the chimney and roof will break/deteriorate letting water in.
- Chimney Bricks – Can degrade especially in colder areas and in the winter with water freezing and expanding which can crack and weaken bricks.

Frequently Asked Questions
What's safe to burn in the fireplace?
You should only burn well-seasoned wood. Watch this video from the CSIA to learn what NOT to burn in your fireplace.
My fireplace stinks, especially in the summer. What can I do?
The smell is because of creosote deposits within the chimney, a natural byproduct of woodburning. The odor is sometimes worse during the summer when the humidity is high the air conditioning is turned on. A typical sweeping will help but usually won’t solve the smell completely. There are commercial chimney deodorants that work well, and plenty of people have good results with kitty litter or maybe baking soda set inside the fireplace. The real problem is that the air being drawn down the chimney, an indication of overall pressure problems within the house. Some make-up air should be introduced someplace else in the house. A good sealing and a top-mounted damper will reduce this air flow coming down the chimney.
I have a gas fireplace. Should this chimney be checked too?
Without a doubt! Although gas is usually a clean-burning fuel, the chimney can become non-functional from bird nests or other debris blocking the flue. Modern furnaces may also cause many problems with the typical flues intended to vent the older generation of furnaces.
How often should I get my chimney swept?
According to The National Fire Protection Association Standard 211, “Chimneys, fireplaces, and vents shall be inspected at least once a year for soundness, freedom from deposits, and correct clearances. Cleaning, maintenance, and repairs shall be done if necessary.”
