Your chimney is more than just a component of your fireplace. It’s a structurally and aesthetically important element of your home’s roofline. When chimneys are cracked, drafty, or otherwise damaged, troublesome leaks can occur, wreaking havoc on your roof and your home. At Homewerx, our chimney leak repair service in Charleston, SC can restore your chimney.
With a careful approach to repairs and a dedication to job done right, you’ll be able to enjoy a chimney that looks great and does its job.
Detailed Repair Process
Like our other exterior and roofing jobs, all of our chimney leak repair projects begin with an extremely thorough look at your existing chimney. We take into consideration any masonry work, flashing materials, and the surrounding areas of your roof. This approach means that any pre-existing damage from leaks or moisture seepage can be adequately handled. We never simply “patch over” these areas.
Next, we develop a plan of attack for your specific chimney issue. For instance, one common area of leakage is the metal flashing region, where the brick or stucco of a chimney butts up against your roofline. In such situations, we would move quickly to remove compromised flashing and replace it with materials sourced from some of the most-trusted suppliers in the industry.
Bottom line: chimney leaks are serious. Left uncorrected, water and moisture can seep into the substructure of your roof. This in turn leads to rot, further leaks, and even toxic mold. Worst of all, you’ll be faced with more costly and complicated repairs down the line.
Chimneys Made To Last
