Chimneys

A Chimney is a vertical channel or pipe that conducts smoke and combustion gases up from a fire or furnace and typically through the roof of a building.

 

Chimneys are notorious for leaking, and the culprit is almost always the sheet metal flashings. Just ask any roofer. But it doesn't take an expert to spot problems—simply look for water-stained ceilings or other telltale signs of leaking in the vicinity of your chimney.

 

You'll want to install new chimney flashing if it's missing, rusted through, falling out or completely covered with roofing tar (a typical short-term fix that’s sure to be hiding bigger problems). It's also a good time to install new flashing when you put on new shingles because you'll want it to last as long as the new roofing (25 to 40 years).
