Bricks can absorb water especially when the mortar is damaged in any way. During the winter when water is absorbed by the bricks it will freeze which expands any cracks, later destroying bricks in a process called spalling. Even if your bricks aren’t noticeably damaged it’s likely they will be weakened causing them to no longer provide sufficient support which weakens the structural integrity of your chimney. To prevent this, scheduled our team to do an inspection.
What Causes Chimney Leaks?
Many things are a contributing factor when looking at the cause of leaks, inside chimneys there are many things that can go wrong and if any of them are done wrong by nonprofessionals it will result in escalating issues until the problem is fixed properly.
Chimney Cap – A damaged Chimney Cap or a non-existent cap will allow water to flow in from the roof.
Crown – If the crown is broken water will leak into the flue lining
Chimney Bricks – Can degrade especially in colder areas and in the winter with water freezing and expanding which can crack and weaken bricks.
Flashing – Typically if installed improperly the seal in between the chimney and roof will break/deteriorate letting water in.
