Chimney Repair 

Exposure to harsh elements and temperature changes may create chimney leaks over time. The trained and qualified professionals at Chimney Works can provide the necessary repairs. Our cost-effective solutions help you restore the safety of your home.

Importance of Fixing Chimney Leaks

A drop of water here and there can accumulate and have a significant impact. Scheduling chimney leak repair can provide you with the following benefits:

  • Protection against water damage: A repair can prevent rainwater from entering where your chimney meets the roofline, protecting the system’s foundation and your home’s walls from moisture damage.
  • Mold prevention: Fixing a leaky chimney helps prevent unwanted mold growth and preserve your home’s air quality — and the health of its occupants.
  • Removal of toxins: A properly operating vent allows smoke to billow out properly to keep chemicals like carbon monoxide and other gases out of your home.
  • Odor elimination: Creosote buildup or unwanted growth can cause odors in your living spaces. Maintaining your chimney’s integrity helps prevent this.

Our Chimney Leak Repair Services

Different kinds of chimney leaks have various causes and effects. At Chimney Works, we offer solutions for the following conditions:

  • Weak flashing: A fix with a sealant called FlashSeal along worn, corroded or improperly installed flashing can stop leaks along the chimney and roofline.
  • Brick and stone: The repair with a water-based repellent called ChimneySaver can protect the masonry from destructive water penetration to maintain a crack-free surface.
  • Missing chimney cap: A stainless steel cap can block rain, snow, debris and pests from entering your chimney.
  • Cracked chimney crowns:

    The addition of a new masonry crown and thermal-stress-resistant protective coating can prevent cracks at the top of your chimney.

  • Cracked and missing mortar joints: We repair leaks in masonry chimneys by grinding out mortar joints, rinsing the area, and then repointing the brick or rebuilding loose pieces.
