Water can be an extremely destructive force, and this is especially true when it comes to chimneys. When left unchecked, water can cause deterioration, corrosion and other serious problems in your chimney. If these problems are not addressed, water can lead to a complete failure of your chimney.
There are several ways that water can get into your chimney. In some cases, stopping the water can be as simple as placing a chimney cap at the top of your chimney. Other times, it takes an experienced professional to track the source of the leak and determine how to fix it. Watch the video below to learn more.
Chimneys Are Porous
Most chimneys are built of porous brick and mortar. Over time, the brick and mortar will break down, allowing more and more water to penetrate deep into your chimney. The spring and fall also bring added moisture problems to your chimney. When temperatures are warmer during the day but dip into freezing at night, this traps moisture inside your chimney and it expands as it refreezes.
