Learn different ways water can damage your chimney from a trusted brick repair expert.

Mold and Mildew Growth

Excess moisture in your chimney will eventually lead to mold and mildew growth. These microorganisms will grow on the surface of the chimney and cause unsightly stains. Make sure to address the problem while small because mold and mildew can spread to different areas of your interior and exterior.

Masonry Cracks

Cracked masonry is not something you should take lightly because it can be costly to deal with. If you recently found leaks in your home, check your chimney masonry immediately. This problem must be addressed immediately and properly because even small cracks can lead to rot. At Bone Dry Roofing, you can count on us for quality masonry repair services. Our team is also here for your gutter replacement needs.

Flue Duct Damage

Flue refers to the ducts or interior of your chimney. It is typically made from clay or metal, which are both resistant to water. However, if you don’t maintain your chimney, you’ll notice the flue will start to change its appearance. This component will also become more vulnerable to damage without proper care. You should get regular chimney inspections to detect and address problems in the flue.

At Bone Dry Roofing, we offer superior chimney repair, inspection, and cleaning services. We are one of the area’s leading residential and commercial roofing contractors. Call 877-BONE-DRY or fill out our contact form to schedule an appointment.
