Roofing and chimney flashing repair
Water damage can often appear inside your home around your chimney area. This is a clear indicator of a roofing or chimney leak, which can be caused by several different issues, which can include:
Roof Repair or replacement

An Absent or Damaged Chimney Cover
Chimney covers are constructed from cement and designed to keep rain, animals, and debris out. Sometimes they are made from mortar, which is less expensive but also almost completely ineffective. If you already have a cover in place, we can check it for cracks and leaks.
Flashing is what seals the area where your chimney enters your roof structure. Not only do most seals fail over time, but if your structure is even just a few years old it may have a dated and ineffective flashing system.
Leaking Brick or Mortar
Cracked bricks or mortar are an obvious cause of leaks. But there is also a possibility of bricks absorbing moisture and then leaking it out. This is even possible with waterproofed chimneys that may have been sealed with the wrong material.
There are several signs of a chimney leak that will appear around your chimney area, inside or outside of your building:
- Chipped Paint
- Stained Walls or Ceilings
- Mold and mildew
- Missing or Loose Shingles
- Popped Nails
- Soft Spots
