Your fireplace and chimney is constantly exposed to the outdoor elements including rain, wind, ice and snow. Since masonry chimneys are made from clay which absorbs water, they expand and contract during the freeze and thaw cycles of the winter, causing mortar and bricks to crack. Over time, harsh weather conditions cause chimney deterioration resulting in a chimney leak and water entering your home.
Chimney leaks are difficult to diagnose because there are many potential causes. If you have a masonry chimney and water is leaking through the top the chimney crown might be cracked. Over time the mortar and bricks chip and spall causing water to penetrate the chimney’s surface Chimney flashing or the metal sheet that connects the chimney to the roof, rusts or lifts. A cracked chimney liner might allow water to enter the home. Finally, a rusted chimney cap might provide easy access.
