Leaky Chimneys

If you see signs within your home of a leak that seems to coincide with rainy weather, you may have a leak somewhere in your roof. A common place for this leak to be found in homes with a wood burning fireplace is near the chimney. The sealant and flashing near where the chimney contacts the rest of the roof can crack and fail, allowing water to leak into your home.

The symptoms you’re likely to see are wet spots in the walls, ceiling, or floors nearby the fireplace, or on the walls adjacent to the chimney where it runs through your home. Other signs that are less likely to be spotted are rotten wood or mold growing in the attic. In the event that you see any of these signs, it’s important to address them quickly.

Left untreated, mold and wood rot can compromise the structural integrity of your home, and put your family’s health at risk. Mold spores can become airborne, and cause serious medical problems if inhaled. Wooden beams that have mold growing on them become far less rigid and can break under even light loads.

The longer these leaks are left untreated, the worse the problem can become. It’s unlikely that you will spot the leak soon after it starts, and many of our customers call us after they’ve found a leak in their home that leads them to discover a much bigger danger hidden in their attic.

We can help you in these terrible situations. Our trained professionals will use skill, experience, and advanced tools to determine where the water damage is, how badly it’s affected your home, and what steps need to be taken to resolve the issue. Because we’re also licensed contractors, we can not only dry out the water damage but remove and rebuild any structure that’s too far gone to salvage. By working directly with your homeowner’s insurance company, we can ensure that your expenses are kept to a minimum and that your home will be restored to it’s prime.

If you have found any evidence of water damage in your home, call us today at 919-467-1991. Our services are available 24/7, and there’s no job too big or too small.
