You probably think we’re crazy for talking about chimney leaks as January was one of the driest months in history. Actually, this is probably one of the best times to get the chimney checked for leaks, especially the chimney flashing.
What is Chimney Flashing?
Chimney flashing is located at the base of the chimney. It is the piece of sheet metal that looks like cut like stairs. The purpose of chimney flashing is to ensure a tight seal from the chimney to the roofing system. However, the seal does wear over time allowing water to enter behind the flashing making its way into your home.
If you’ve ever seen a stain on your ceiling, that is usually caused by a water leak. The problem with water leaks is that you can never tell the source. Water is very smart that way, and where the leak shows up on your ceiling or wall, can originate clear across the home.
