If you have noticed water leaks in your chimney you may need Pearland chimney caps, call Chimney Wildlife Tech (832) 413-6431.
Over the last few months we have had quite some rain in the Pearland area. This has lead, unfortunately, to some homeowners finding that there are leaks in their homes that they hadn’t previously known about. This then leads to how do you repair Pearland chimney caps that may be leaking into your chimney?
There are a few reasons that your chimney may be leaking water, one of the easiest to spot is if you have Pearland chimney caps installed on your home. A custom chimney cap when correctly installed on a chimney will help to prevent water from leaking into the chimney during rains and snow. Another reason that you could have water leaking into your chimney is that your mortar crown or chase may need repairs. This often happens when there are no Pearland chimney caps in place or they have been incorrectly installed on the home. One of the main functions of the chimney cap is to protect the chase and mortar crown from damage due to exposure to the elements.
Another thing that can be done to assist with a chimney that has custom Pearland chimney caps installed and the mortar crown and chase are both in good shape is to water proof the chimney bricks themselves. This will help to repel any water that comes in contact with the chase while still allowing the bricks in your fireplace to breathe.
If you have had a chimney leak that has not been repaired call Chimney Wildlife Tech for an evaluation on what is going on. Also, if you haven’t had a leak yet think that your Pearland chimney caps may be non-existent or in need of repair call us right away. Having a chimney cap that is performing poorly will only lead to more needed repairs later on down the road.
