There are two other services that maintain chimney integrity and sound structure. One of them is chimney flashing. Chimney flashing is the seal between the roofing material and the chimney. It prevents rain water from running down the chimney where it can damage rafters, walls, joists and other elements of your structure. Leaking chimneys are often caused by faulty flashing and a quick repair is the replacement or repair of this flashing.
Waterproofing is another solution to preventing the deterioration of chimneys. By checking one’s attic, one can discover the first sign of chimney trouble. Hairline cracks can occur even in new construction because of mortar shrinking during the curing process. Defective mortar joints and deteriorating brick result in greater water damage. However, several new products are effective at waterproofing chimneys. These new sealants allow the masonry to breathe out condensation but not take it in.
