Cold Weather and Rain leads to Masonry Chimney Leaks

The end of 2015 has been one of the worst for masonry chimney's and water leaks.  This is all due to a year end with cold temperatures (but not freezing) and wet rains.  Think of your masonry chimney as a very hard sponge.  As it rains, it is going to get wet, and absorb some moisture.  With the colder temperatures, the masonry has no chance to dry out.  It rains again, and more water absorbs into the already moist masonry surface.  All this water has to go somewhere (which is down) so you will typically see moisture staining around or in the chimney structure.   Give us a call should you need help with this situation.
