How Can I Tell if I Have a Chimney Leak?

A leaky chimney can cause a lot of damage to your chimney and your house, so it’s important to recognize the warning signs early before damage has time to set in. Here are some of the most common ways to tell if your chimney is leaking:

  • Discoloration on the walls and ceiling near the chimney. Keep an eye out for water stains on the ceiling or walls near the chimney. These stains may be brown or yellow, and you may notice that these spots slowly expand as time goes on.
  • Bubbling paint and peeling wallpaper. If you spot peeling paint or wallpaper near the chimney, it could be an indication that water is leaking into your chimney and damaging the walls.
  • Visible water in the firebox. Water dripping into the firebox or pooling at the base of the chimney is a clear sign that your chimney is leaking.
  • Stains on the chimney masonry. White stains are called efflorescence, and it’s caused by water forcing minerals out of the bricks and mortar. Green staining is typically caused by vegetation.
  • Cracks in the chimney bricks and mortar. Cracks can develop in the chimney’s masonry when water damage has gone unchecked. The mortar may also fall out over time.
  • A bad smell. A sudden musty odor may be a sign that mold or mildew is growing in your chimney system. Mold and mildew thrive in damp, dark environments and a leaky chimney is the perfect place.

Why Is My Chimney Leaking?

Several factors can contribute to leaks in your chimney system. Damaged or improperly installed flashing – the metal barrier sealing the joint between the chimney and the roof – can allow water intrusion during rain events. In the same vein, a missing or malfunctioning chimney cap leaves the flue directly exposed to rain and debris, while ongoing exposure to the elements can cause cracks to develop in the chimney crown

The problem could also originate in the chimney structure itself. Spalling bricks or deteriorating mortar can provide just enough room for water to seep into the chimney. To pinpoint the cause and properly resolve the problem, schedule a chimney inspection with Mountain Man Fireplace & Chimney.

Water Damage Can Devastate Your Chimney System

Water is the biggest threat to your chimney. The issue can be minor to start but without successful intervention, you can end up with a chimney that isn’t structurally sound and an unusable hearth appliance. Call Mountain Man Fireplace & Chimney at 303-679-1601 or request an appointment online.
