Causes of Chimney Leaks in Fishkill, NY

The most common cause for chimney leaks is a missing or damaged chimney cap or chase top. Cracks in the chimney crown are another common reason for chimney leaks, but they are not easy to spot without a routine chimney inspection. When rainwater leaks through these cracks, it damages the interior masonry and flue liner. It can also promote the growth of mold and mildew inside the chimney. Other common causes include condensation on the liner, damaged or worn flashing, and masonry cracks.
