The Importance of Chimney Repairs

Ensuring that your home’s chimneys are well-maintained is essential to your home’s durability, and also to your own personal safety. Chimneys are designed to be smoke-proof, and funnel smoke from your wood fires up and out of your home.

However, a chimney that is cracked or falling into disrepair won’t be able to do this job properly. The consequences can be twofold. First, smoke and soot might permeate your home, and second, moisture from outside might begin to seep into your roof through the weakened chimney, potentially causing significant damage.

Keeping your chimney and its flashing in good condition is essential if you want to protect your home from the elements.

Repairing Chimney Flashing

Although cracks in the inner and outer walls of your chimney can be a highly visible sign of roof damage in need of repair, very often it’s actually the flashing around your chimney that is the culprit. Chimney flashing is a special type of sheet metal that joins your roof and chimney, and which is key to ensuring that your roof is waterproof.

When your chimney flashing is damaged or old, or is beginning to pull away from the surrounding roof area, your home is at risk of damage from the elements. If you’ve noticed stains on your ceiling near where your chimney is, or you’ve noticed other signs of water damage, then it’s highly possible that your chimney flashing needs to be repaired.

Call in the experts for your chimney repairs

Restoring and replacing chimney flashing involves ensuring that your flashing is perfectly cut and positioned to make sure that your chimney and roof remain waterproof. It’s a job for the experts—and given the importance of your roof to the structural stability of your home, bringing in qualified individuals is a must.

Fortunately the expert team at Westwood Roofing has extensive experience in identifying, repairing and replacing damaged chimneys and chimney flashing as well. Prevention is better than cure, so if your roof hasn’t received the attention that it deserves in recent years, arrange a thorough roof inspection. Our expert team can examine your chimney and chimney flashing, as well as your roof more generally, and make note of any potential issues that need to be repaired, replaced, or monitored.
