Causes of Chimney Leaks

There are only a handful of things that can cause a leaking chimney. The top 3 causes of chimney leaks are as follows:

    chimney cap leaks

  1. Flashing – Flashing is the rectangular sheets of metal that create a waterproof seal between the chimney and the roof itself. When the adhesive becomes old and brittle, it cracks and allow rainwater to enter into your home.
  2. Chimney Caps – A chimney cap is usually made of metal or cement and its primary function is to keep rainwater from pouring into your fireplace. When this becomes rusted or damaged, the chances for leaks to happen are greatly increased.
  3. Masonry & Siding Damage – On older homes, the mortar between the layers of bricks in your chimney can erode and allow water to penetrate. Improperly installed siding on chimneys that are comprised of a single metal pipe with a box built around it can also be a source of leaks.

Regardless of what caused the need for a chimney leak repair, it’s pretty easy to tell if your chimney is leaking. Water stains on the ceiling, or water running down the front or sides of your fireplace will always give it away.

If at all possible, do not put off a chimney leak repair. Doing so can not only lead to water damage to the structure of your home, but a very costly repair as well.
