Are you having issues with water leaks on the inside of your walls around your chimney? If so, you might be experiencing issues with your roof or flashing. When it comes to moisture and your chimney system, homeowners usually focus the chimney cap or the chimney crown. However, if your chimney flashing is not working properly, it can cause moisture issues that could lead to serious damage to your chimney and home. At TN Fireplace & Chimney, we don’t want you to live with a leaky home. That is why we expanded our services to include roof repair alongside our top-rated chimney repair services!
Your chimney flashing is strips of metal that bridges the gap where your chimney intersects with your roof. If this gap isn’t covered properly, it allows rainwater to flow into your home and down your chimney. This leads to masonry damage, but it also causes structural damage to your home. Because of its location, your chimney flashing is under constant exposure to rain, hail, sleet, and flowing water.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that your chimney flashing can become worn and damaged, thus losing its effectiveness. At TN Fireplace & Chimney, our experienced chimney technicians can remove your old flashing and install new flashing, making your home moisture-free.
If we go up to your roof and realize that it is your roof causing leakage issues, we are here to help with your roof repairs too. Our professionals can handle any minor roof repairs that cause leaks. Our roof repair services include fixing loose shingles, replacing damaged shingles, and replacing missing caulking around the flashing. Let our professionals fix your leaky roof today!
The best way to prevent leaks is to have your chimney inspected at least once a year by a Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) certified chimney technician. A CSIA certified chimney technician has been through rigorous training and testing to prove they are familiar with the latest chimney service and repair techniques and safety protocols.
It is also important to have your chimney inspected at least annually. This allows us to catch any leakage issues before they become a larger issue. You don’t have to live with a leaky chimney or roof!
