Leaky chimney repair in Newbury NHSigns of a leaky chimney shouldn’t be ignored. If addressed early, this problem can be fixed before it becomes a serious repair issue. Here are a few things to look for:

  • Water dripping into the firebox
  • Damp patches of interior walls near the fireplace/chimney
  • White staining on the chimney’s exterior masonry
  • Loose or missing bricks
  • Strong odors coming from the firebox

These and other signs tell you that somehow water is penetrating the chimney or one or more of its components. No matter the cause of your leaky chimney, our CSIA-certified chimney sweeps will get it fixed for you in the least amount of time.

What Causes a Leaky Chimney?

Chimney leaks can happen for a variety of reasons. Some of the most common include:

Missing or damaged chimney cap: If you operate your chimney without a chimney cap, water can easily get into the flue. Likewise, a damaged chimney cap is not able to do its job in protecting against water from rain or melting snow. Learn how we can repair and install chimney caps.

Deteriorated chimney crown: The cement crown that covers the bricks at the top of your chimney is prone to cracking over time. When cracks enlarge, water can infiltrate the bricks and drip down into the flue. Learn how we can rebuild chimney crowns and perform waterproofing for minor cracking.

No chimney liner or wrong-sized liner: Chimney liners perform many important jobs, one of which is preventing excess condensation from accumulating within the interior bricks of the chimney. Eventually, this moisture will damage the bricks and create a serious leak issue. Learn how we can repair and install chimney liners.

Chimney Leak Repair in Nashua NHWarped or otherwise damaged flashing: Flashing is the material that seals off the gap where the roof of your home meets the chimney. Damaged flashing will allow water to run down into the home structure and cause damage to the chimney masonry as well as beams, rafters and wall boards. This can be a serious problem, especially if mold begins to grow. Learn how we can repair and install chimney flashing.

Damaged masonry: Cracks in the bricks and mortar of a chimney can happen from normal aging, house-settling, extreme temperatures and high winds. Water can get into these cracks and freeze, which causes it to expand and do further damage. Damaged chimney masonry can easily be the cause of a chimney leak, and it also can result in an unsafe operational environment. Learn how we can perform chimney rebuilding and expert brick repair.

In assessing leaky chimneys, we begin with a thorough inspection. Our certified chimney inspectors are experts at finding the source of a chimney leak and getting right to work to fix it correctly.

I wanted to give 5 stars but they are very busy which meant I had a good wait for both the inspection/cleaning, then for a quote on repairs and then for the repairs. Their prices seemed a little high to me but I have nothing to compare with as they were highly recommended by someone I trust and other companies had plenty of negatives reviews which kept me from getting additional quotes. I am happy with the work and they promptly returned to fix a mistake that had been made. Chris the inspector, Jennifer in the office, and Alex and his repair crew were all pleasant and took the time to answer all of my questions. Alex and his crew even took their shoes off (it was winter) before entering my house without even being asked! So if you are not in a rush and want to ensure you chimney is as safe as possible then I think you'll be happy with Black Moose.

After a recent sweep of our chimney, it was discovered that our flue tiles were cracked. Black Moose techs were hard working, detail oriented and professional! Nice jobs guys! See you next year for my cleaning!

Excellent I highly recommend Black Moose Chimney and Stove; Kelly and Liam are awesome, they did a great job. Extremely professional, arrived early, went through everything with a fine tooth comb ensuring pellet stove was thoroughly cleaned. They also were respectful of my home, conscientious and cleaned up after themselves. Made sure stove worked prior to leaving and told me to call promptly if anything came up afterward. Will definitely use them again.

We've had Black Moose clean our chimney for a number of years.But recently, we had an emergency situation at our home involving our chimney & oil furnace flue, which was caked full of soot from a malfunctioning furnace. They came & cleaned out both flues in no time, even going up on the roof with snow on it! They cleaned up after their work in the interior rooms where the oil furnace and the woodstove are located. Great work. Reasonable prices. Very nice people. You can't go wrong with Black Moose.

Goods: The technicians know their business, very efficient in cleaning/inspection along with cleaning up after the 'dirty work'.Others: Communications could be more effective. Despite early coordination about scope of work (multiple flues within same chimney) the estimate provided did not reflect this and the final invoice was significantly more than the estimate provided.Quote for follow-on chimney relining was significantly more than that offered by other companies in the area (and far more than neighbors experienced for similar work accomplished by other companies)
