Protect Against Chimney Leaks & Summer Storms

Many assume winter is the most damaging season towards your chimney, but this is not always the case. Water damage in the summer can sometimes be just as devastating as winter damage. In addition, temperatures don’t have to be low for water to damage more than just your chimney exterior. Once water enters the system, it can cause damage throughout your home!

Chimney waterproofing & Chimney Leak repair in Concord NHCommon Water Damage

We see an increase in calls associated with chimney odors during the spring. This may be the first indication of a problem, but the leak has likely occurred all winter and will continue throughout the summer. Water in the chimney system can cause:

  • Rusted parts, assemblies, doors, hinges, and accessories
  • Deteriorated, rotted, and ruined metal assemblies, structures, and more
  • Collapsed, shifted, and damaged masonry, support, and foundation
  • Clogged, dirty, and stinky chimney system
  • Stained masonry interior and exterior
  • Leaks and water damage throughout the home

Preventing Storm Damage

The best way to prevent damage caused by summer storms is through waterproofing. This means maintaining your chimney system properly by scheduling routine chimney sweeps and annual inspections. At these appointments, a certified chimney professional will assess all parts of the chimney system and check for and record all types of damage. Once a hazard is identified, it may be a simple fix that restores your chimney back to full safety and function. We will make sure that your masonry is in good condition, the flashing is installed and functioning properly, and the cap and crown are keeping water out as well. A healthy chimney should be protected against water damage from spring showers and summer storms. Whether the storm brings hail, high winds, or heavy rain, your chimney will be a-okay when you call Black Moose Chimney and Stove.

You can also schedule waterproofing services that will protect your masonry from water penetration year after year. At Black Moose Chimney and Stove, we treat masonry with ChimneySaver, a vapor-permeable product that repels water while also allowing smoke, gas, and heat to still escape as needed. This industrial product will not change the look of your masonry at all, will not seal in moisture produced by your fire, and also comes with an extended warranty. We recommend waterproofing services after masonry repairs, rebuilds, new constructions, and other extenuating circumstances. We apply ChimneySaver easily in one appointment. It dries in just 1-2 hours and starts to protect your masonry in as little as six hours after applied.

You can protect your chimney from summer storms when you make it a priority. Don’t leave yourself open to damage, costs, and danger. Act now, and prepare your chimney for the summer!

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)
