Water Leaks on Prefabricated Chimneys
Unlike Masonry Chimneys, Prefabricated chimney components are made of thin sheet metal and are very susceptible to rusting. Left unchecked, water damage often causes your fireplace or stove to become damaged beyond repair requiring a total replacement of the entire system! For this reason, it is imperative that water is not allowed to collect or infiltrate where it doesn’t belong!
The following are the most common types of water leakage problems we see on prefabricated, factory-built chimney systems. If your chimney system has any of these problems, you’ll want to have it corrected as soon as possible to avoid unsafe conditions or avoidable expensive repairs in the future.

This was my first experience having my chimney cleaned and I wasn’t sure quite what to expect! I was very impressed with how careful the technician was to ensure that nothing got on our carpet or couches using tarps and a special vacuum to filter the air and ensure no soot got into the home.
It was a good feeling when your technician started setting up and took the time to assure me he would leave my home as clean as he found it.
A to Z is definitely pro! Thanks for a professionally clean chimney, and a totally clean house!
