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 which expands any cracks, later destroying bricks in a process called spalling. Even if your bricks aren’t noticeably damaged, it’s likely they will be weakened causing them to no longer provide sufficient support to the structural integrity of your chimney. To prevent this, get an inspection scheduled and our trusted technicians will come to solve any issues or concerns you have.
What Causes Chimney Leaks?
Many things are a contributing factor when looking at the cause of water leaks. Inside chimneys, there are many things that can go wrong and if any of them are attempted by nonprofessionals, it will result in more problems later down the line.
- Chimney Cap – A damaged Chimney Cap or a nonexistent cap will allow water to flow in from the roof.
- Crown – If the crown is broken water will leak into the flue lining
- Chimney Bricks – Can degrade especially in colder areas and in the winter with water freezing and expanding which can crack and weaken bricks.
- Flashing – Typically if installed improperly the seal in between the chimney and roof will break/deteriorate letting water in.

Thank you Sootmaster
We found it nearly impossible to find a company willing to replace our chimney caps because of the high pitch of our roof. Your guys came out, assessed the job and came back and completed it. The work quality is excellent and we couldn’t be happier.
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.”
Hurricane Safety Tips
Hurricane season has arrived and we want to make sure we provide you with the best tips to keep your home and chimney as safe as possible.
- Shut the Fireplace Damper: When your damper is open during a storm, rain and moisture will get trapped in your chimney flue and that can cause many problems. If your chimney has been leaking, look into getting a Locktop Damper installed.
- Invest in a Chimney Cap: Essentially a chimney cap is a roof that goes over the hole at the top of your chimney flue. A properly installed chimney cap will keep most of the rain out while also adding extra protection against hurricane damage.
- Get a Chimney & Fireplace Inspection: Getting an inspection before any major storms or hurricanes occur can prevent any problems your chimney may have from worsening. If your firebox has cracks, any flooding or water build-up can cause severe structural issues.
