    It seems like the snow keeps falling but soon the rainy spring season will be here! There are many ways rainwater can damage your home from clogged gutters to chimney cracks. And what’s worse is that water troubles are hard to detect. They can go unnoticed for months, even years, before you realize the damage they have caused!

    Before the rainy season hits take time now to make sure your chimney is in peak performance. This may include a chimney inspection, chimney repair or just some much-needed TLC!

    Water Damage & Your Chimney

    Heavy rains plus a damaged chimney can be a recipe for disaster. Here are some reasons why:

    • Heavy rainfall can enter through damage or missing flashing

    • Water can cause a deteriorating masonry chimney to crack or spall

    • A chimney cap that doesn’t fit properly can allow water to enter the flue

    Six Ways to Protect the Chimney

    • Schedule a yearly chimney inspection and cleaning

    • Hire a certified professional to complete any chimney repair in need of attention

    • Make sure you have a well-fitting chimney cap installed

    • Check your chimney flashing and crown regularly

    • Coat the exposed areas of the chimney crown with a waterproof sealant
