There are many reasons why leaks occur in chimneys. If your chimney develops a leak, then it can be a major cause of concern because of rain rot problems, as well as corrosion. Melting snow and heavy rains can provide a real challenge to all chimney types, creating chimney leaks.

Crown Coat is another Midtown product that we use to help seal chimney crowns at the top!



Sometimes rain will fall down the inside of an open top chimney falling into the fire, making a sizzling noise. Sometimes the water will find a pathway into a residence from the roof. Rain and melting snow are harsh elements on a masonry structure that is exposed to freezing temperatures at night followed by warmer above-freezing temperatures during the day. Chimney leaks are caused by loose flashing, dammed up water behind a chimney, and rain water being absorbed into masonry bricks. Water coming into the residence causes problems from small nuisances to major damage. Sometimes the repairs are expensive! As in many things in life, an ounce of prevention can worth a pound of cure.

Here is a video on how we use Chimney Saver to help fix leaky chimneys!

Possible Reasons for Leaky Chimneys

There are many reasons for a chimney leaks. Water can penetrate stone and brick and come into the structure causing wood to rot and create costly repairs. These chimney leaks can be solved by applying a simple superficial water repellent to the outside of the chimney. We can reduce or eliminate the water intrusion problem. Locating chimney leaks is not an easy task. Quite often the leaks become evident only after the damage has been done. Leaks can occur almost anywhere on the chimney at almost any time. The top of the chimney is a mortared area known as the crown or splay; it is vulnerable to leaks. If this part cracks or comes loose, rainwater can enter into the fireplace. You may not notice the leaks until you find water in the hearth or even elsewhere in your home if the water becomes diverted due to some obstacles. We Fix Leaky Chimneys Nationwide.

Chimney Leaks are hard to Find- unless you are on the roof!

You must remember that masonry chimneys are constructed with various materials such as brick, steel, mortar, tile, and cast iron- and at some point they must penetrate or touch your roofline. All of these are highly vulnerable to water damage and the risks increase in areas which see regular rain or cold weather. If you live in such an area you can choose to have your chimney waterproofed with the appropriate waterproofing agent. There is a wide range of water proofing and water resistant materials available on the market and you will need to consult a professional about the product best suited to your needs. If you think waterproofing is expensive, think again. It is bound to be much cheaper than the costs you will face when replacing expensive masonry, parts of your ceiling, dealing with mold growth, and so on, damaged by water leaks.

I was very fortunate it was a small problem, and Levi was able to do the work/sealing the same day he came out to inspect the problem. Would highly recommend Midtown Chimney .

I had an issue with my fireplace after my roof was replaced and a part fell down. The team helped determine what the issue was, came to my house in a timely manner and fixed the issue. The team took great care for my house, laying down a sheet, cleaning up the fireplace and making it look better then before. They also were very helpful in explaining each step of the process and were very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend.

A few weeks ago when we had the 2 days of heavy rain, I noticed water coming into my fireplace from the chimney flue. Midtown and Daniel came out the next day to inspect the chimney and and see why the water was leaking in. Turns out the mortar on the crown of the chimney was cracked pretty bad and two of my three were not covered. Worked with me and gave me an excellent price to get a multi cap, put on the entire chimney and also seal all the cracks. Within a week from the time I called Midtown the repairs were done. The multi cap was installed, it was a great price and I would highly recommend. to use midtown. Excellent work, fast, very fair price, and Daniel was very friendly and easy to work with.
Response from the owner: That's wonderful, thank you Allen! We appreciate you taking the time to share your positive experience with Daniel! We're glad we were able to help you with your leaky chimney in a timely matter! Thank you again and please don't hesitate to reach out if anything is ever needed! :)-The Midtown Chimney Team🎩

We had some leaking in our chimney and needed to get our cap replaced. Mason came by for the initial inspection and let me know the situation and provided an easy to understand explanation on options. I was given updates on the timing of ordering parts and scheduled the work to repair soon thereafter. Mason came back to do the repair and calmly handled the situation where I may have created some stress -.-. Thanks for the speedy and quality work!

Mason did a fabulous job today servicing our wood burning stove including climbing up on our steeply pitched roof. He also cleaned another wood burning stove for us earlier in the winter and, again, did a wonderful job. We will for sure call Mason again to inspect and clean our wood burning stoves.

My family has a cabin above Boulder. When we came into ownership of the cabin we discovered that the stove and stove installation/stovepipe were very out of code. I looked around for a company to replace and install a new woodstove and decided to go with Midtown Chimney Fireplace. I sent them pictures of my cabin which has a really steep roof and they built an estimate and sent it to me by email. The estimate was comprehensive and easy to understand and when I had a question about it I was able to make a phone call and talk to a human on the other end of the line. I clicked the red approve quote button, paid the deposit, and then they scheduled the work. First they staged the product a few days in advance and then came right on time to do the installation work. Our home was as clean and in as good a shape after they installed the new stove as before.When the new stove was installed there was a small leak near their work area which they addressed promptly. There were no problems with the stove, installation and outside air kit that was necessary to comply with local codes. We love the way it looks!One year later we still couldn't be happier. Thanks Midtown Chimney Services!
Response from the owner: Thank you Karina, all the best on the new roof. If you need us we are a phone call or a text message away!-The Midtown Chimney and Fireplace Store team
We reached out to get our chimney cleaned and capped.Jon was very responsive an excellent! He addressed all of our concerns promptly. I was impressed by his commitment to honoring the old quote since we didn't have any changes in the scope of work. His work was efficient and solid, leaving us with a clean and properly capped chimney. I highly recommend this company for the professionalism and quality of service.
Response from the owner: Wow, thank you so much Sarah! We really appreciate you taking the time to write this positive review and will definitely pass it along to Jon. We agree, Jon rocks! Looking forward to helping you again with any chimney needs! Thanks again for your recommendation and please take care! :)-The Midtown Chimney Team🎩
