Many people are unaware of the importance of the upkeep of chimneys. From squirrel invasions to dangerous chemical buildup from years of nonuse, there are multiple reasons that your chimney could stop working properly and become a serious safety hazard. Chimney inspections are very important not only for your safety but also for the environment.
Water and Chimneys Do Not Mix
There are multiple reasons that water can enter your home through the roof. If you have a chimney, then you may be well aware of these issues and how to fix them. Most homeowners with chimneys don’t give the chimney a second thought when it comes to water damage entering their homes. Usually, they think some shingles may have come loose, and that’s how water is getting in and damaging their ceilings. The chimney is usually the main suspect in this case. Here are a few reasons why your chimney is crying for help!
This is a crucial part of your chimney and needs to be inspected yearly. The liner could have holes, cracks, or weak spots that allow water to seep through.
Loose or damaged flashing can invite moisture in and cause extensive damage to your roof and attic because of deterioration.
The crown keeps water from damaging the inside of your chimney. This should be inspected thoroughly for cracks or gaps to ensure that water and snow do not get into your system.
