Chimney Leaking A Lot Of Roof Leaks Can Start Here
The last thing that you want to deal with is chimney leaks. These are commonly caused as a result of the flashing around the chimney. This can occur around chimneys, skylights, and many other features around your home – and be the cause of approximately 99% of all roof leaks.
The initial installation of your chimney is likely the cause of the leak. It may have been as a result of a failure to understand the underlayment and far for purposes of protection, a lack of technical experience for the people who were performing the installation, or the fact that the Alberta Building Code does not provide enough details on flashing, causing many contractors to ignore the issue entirely.
When you are experiencing a roof leak, it can be difficult to find the exact source. When you are checking for a leak, you will want to ensure the chimney flashing is flush with the exterior finishing of the chimney. Chimney exteriors such as brick, vinyl, wood board, stucco, and cinderblock all need to have the roof flashing tied into them.
At Progressive Roofing in Calgary AB, we can check for chimney leaking and determine if the leak in your home is as a result of the chimney itself. We can then provide the necessary repairs in order to prevent the leak from occurring any further. This may involve correcting some of the roofing materials and installing flashings.
We take pride in the work that we do, and want to make sure that you don’t have a chimney leak in Calgary. It’s not uncommon to experience them, and this is because there are many contractors who don’t have the knowledge or training to properly install flashing.
Instead of dealing with the leak every time it rains, our professional roofers can solve the problem for you once and for all.
