Chimney Leaks

Chimney Leak Repair in Cincinnati

Just like so many other types of leaks, a chimney leak is not easy to diagnose. While there are common sources of leaks on a chimney, water can come through practically any part of the chimney. Chimneys, due to where they’re located, take the brunt of any inclimate weather and face the elements year-round. Sometimes the problems stems from poor construction, masonry imperfections, and even issues with the fireplace. In any case, our uniquely trained Home Repair Heroes are capable of performing your chimney leak repair in Cincinnati.

Common Causes of Chimney Leaks

Chimney Leak Repair in Cincinnati - ProMaster Home RepairOver the many years we’ve spent performing chimney leak repairs in Cincinnati we’ve learned that there is no sure way of telling the cause of chimney leak right off the bat. However, we noticed that there are 3 causes that we come across more commonly than others.

Flashing

The first place our guys look is the flashing around where the chimney meets the roof. Too many roofers around Cincinnati take shortcuts with construction or repair--we know because we’re the company the homeowners call to fix those shortcuts. Even a tiny hole on your chimney step flashing can lead to a considerable amount of water getting into your home.

Chimney Cap

Another common cause of a chimney leak has to do with the chimney cap. This is that metal box that goes over the top and connects to the top of the flue liner. They’re meant to keep rain, debris, and even animals like birds out. When these are improperly installed, damaged or missing, chimney leaks ensue.

Mortar Joints

A last common cause of a chimney leak that we run across involves the mortar joints. Mortar joints deteriorate just like everything else on your home. These deteriorations can lead to holes big enough for water to flow through. Once getting through the mortar joint, water is persistent, capable of traveling through tiny holes in bricks and changing direction several times before finding its way into the house.
