The Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) states water causes extensive deterioration to chimneys and masonry, leading to expensive repairs. Preventing water penetration is one of the most important responsibilities that a homeowner has when maintaining a masonry chimney. If you suspect your chimney is leaking, now is the best time to take care of this problem. Most damage occurs during the winter, so it is smart and preemptive to repair leaks before then.

We Find and Fix Chimney Leaks
Our CSIA-certified chimney technicians are very familiar as to the most common places where chimney leaks occur. We check the condition of your chimney cap, crown, and chase cover to be sure the leak is not coming from the top of the chimney. If we find the problem is caused by any of these components, we help you select a replacement and professionally install it. We also look at other vulnerable spots, such as where the chimney meets the roof. If you do not have a customized flashing system installed in this area, we construct and install one to keep this spot safe from water penetration. We repair any damaged bricks and mortar joints that can allow water to enter into your chimney and home. No matter what your leaky chimney damage may be, you can count on us to fix it.
We Provide Professional Chimney Waterproofing Services
For the best protection against water penetration, Blue Ridge Chimney Services recommends waterproofing your chimney before the cold weather arrives. We apply a chimney waterproofing formula that creates a barrier against water leaks that prevents winter spalling damage during freeze/thaw cycles. We only use 100 percent vapor permeable formulas to allow combustion gas vapors to easily escape instead of becoming trapped and causing more spalling damage. This great investment in your masonry chimney protects your chimney from water penetration for at least a decade.
