Major Signs of Water Damage

As a southern chimney company we understand there’s one issue that is more prominent here than any where else in the country: Water damage. We mentioned before how water can cause a drafting problem, but these are a few signs that your chimney may have some serious issues,

  • Spalling: Cracking or flaking pieces of brick. Spalling happens when a brick absorbs too much water, then later freezes. The rapid expansion of the water causes cracks in the brick, and often makes the surface flake and crumble. These weakened bricks no longer provide the support they once did and now they are a risk.
  • Liner Deterioration and Oxidation: Rusting or damage to the tile liner. Cracks in the flue liner present a very high risk of letting heat and water escape. Water running down the flue can cause the liner or firebox to rust and ultimately break down. Flue cracks also leave a gap for a possible chimney fire to branch through and cause damage. If you notice any sign of rust, call us immediately to set up an inspection.
  • Mold: exactly what it sounds like. Some types of mold, such as black mold can cause major health problems and even death if left untreated or ignored. Most milder mold symptoms are coughing, sneezing, bad odor, and allergic reactions.

If you notice any of these signs in your home, please call us immediately at 912-225-9575
