Avoid Chimney Leaks

Chimney leaks can ruin the foundation of your home. One way leaks can occur is if the flashing is faulty or old. The flashing is simply a sheet of metal that is installed to connect  the chimney and the roof and ensure that it is watertight. The problem with the flashing is that, no matter how well they were installed, they will eventually expire and need to be replaced. That is why it is important to periodically check the flashing and get proper inspections done. This way not only is the flashing examined, but the entire chimney is carefully looked at.

Warning Signs for Flashing Repairs and Replacements

The thing about leaks around the chimney is that they are not always immediately evident. However, though not evident, they can still cause serious structural damage to the foundation of your home. When moisture enters the roofing, the attic or even the ceiling areas causing some issues, including: 

  • rotting wood
  • roof damage
  • attic damage
  • drywall damage

To avoid these sorts of leakage problems, it is best to have the attic inspected every six months to a year. For trustworthy inspections you can rely on, contact Always Affordable Chimney today.
