Dealing With Chimney Damage

It’s likely that you rarely think about the chimney on your roof or the various kinds of problems that can occur with your home’s chimney.

Identifying the Need for Chimney Repair

Everything from poor weather to pest intrusion can lead to a damaged chimney. Keeping this in mind, it is a good idea for any homeowner to know what to watch out for to identify a need for chimney repair.

The structure of a chimney can be damaged by weather issues such as hailstorms. If you see obvious structural damage, it is always a good idea to reach out for professional chimney repair as soon as possible. This is because major damage to a chimney has the potential to allow water intrusion into your roof and other parts of your home, which can cause even more serious damage. 

However, along with obvious damage such as a cracked chimney, there are many other signs that can indicate a need for chimney repair. A foul or especially smokey smell may occur while the fireplace is being used, which is typically caused by the excessive build-up of byproducts that can cling to the inside of the chimney. Combined with other factors, this can indicate a need for chimney repair.

Other things you may want to watch out for include areas of discoloration such as white stains due to moisture in your chimney. This can also lead to issues such as rusted areas on the metal components of your chimney. Signs of leaks around your chimney such as damaged wallpaper or water stains may also indicate a need for chimney repair. This is because they can indicate potential damage to parts of your chimney or the surrounding roofing system.
