Types Of Repairs We May Perform To Address Chimney Leaks

Crown Repair & Rebuild

The crown or cement covering of your masonry chimney is an area prone to chimney leaks. Even if the crown was properly built with a drip edge, crowns can wear thin or crack, allowing moisture into the chimney. The only way to stop these chimney leaks is to repair or rebuild the crown, but applying a water repellent can give added protection and prevent future leaks. No matter what your crown needs — cracks filled, waterproofing, or a completely new design — you can count on our highly trained and enthusiastic professionals to take care of it for you. We guarantee effective, long-lasting, attractive results, and we’ll make sure water stays out of your crown for good.

Chase Cover Repair & Replacement

Prefabricated or factory-built chimneys may not have a crown, but they should have a reliable chase cover made of high-grade metal. If the chase cover is made of a lower-grade metal, like aluminum, it can rust, sag, and even collapse, contributing to chimney leaks and moisture damage. How’s your chase cover looking? Is it keeping water out? We can make sure of it by making repairs or replacing it with a new custom-fitted stainless steel or copper chase cover.

Chimney Caps

Is a missing or leaky chimney cap to blame for your chimney leak? Keeping nesting animals, rain, snow, sleet, and debris out of your chimney and flue can be easy with the right chimney cap. Whether you have a multi-flue chimney and you want a chimney cap that will provide protection to the flues and the crown, you have a single flue chimney, or you’d like a damper/cap combo, we’ve got you covered. Our chimney caps and top-mounted dampers are crafted from stainless steel and copper and they’re built to last. Let one of our experts install your new cap or top-sealing damper today.

Flashing Repair & Installation

The sheet metal at the base of the chimney that’s woven into the roof is called the flashing. Flashing is designed to keep water out of this area, but poor installation, severe weather, moisture, animals, and strong winds can lift, dent, rust, or otherwise render flashing ineffective at stopping leaks. If your flashing is letting water into your chimney and needs repair, we can help. Our chimney and roofing experts will make sure the flashing is properly installed and watertight — we’ll even waterproof the flashing itself for added protection. Just ask!

Masonry Waterproofing

Believe it or not, the brick and mortar of your masonry chimney can absorb moisture and lead to leaks and costly water damage. As naturally porous materials, they’re bound to absorb some moisture, but once absorbed, moisture can cause damage and deterioration (like cracks, holes, spalling, etc.) that allows even more moisture in. The best way to prevent this type of chimney leak from occurring and to protect your chimney against water staining and deterioration is to waterproof your masonry with a reliable and effective product, like ChimneySaver water repellent. We’ll make sure the application is done just right so you can enjoy a more beautiful, longer-lasting chimney and a leak-free home.

See What Our Customers Are Saying!

Top Hat arrived at appointed time, they inspected, measured and took pictures of the fireplace chimney, I have a water leak at the flashing. Now await their estimate on cost. I have used Top Hat in the past and was very happy with service.

I cannot recommend TopHat highly enough. Jake came out to give an estimate for new roof and chimney/fireplace repairs. He was prompt and professional, and he provided great information. We really liked that they support local businesses whenever possible.

After we decided to go with TopHat for our roof (new roof AND increased ventilation with ridge vents) and to clean our chimney (repairs weren’t necessary!), they were actually able to take care of our roof a few days earlier than planned. They completed the roof in one day, the chimney sweep came a few days later (worked best for our schedule), and Jake came out to talk with us and check on the work done by his crew.

The price was the same as the estimate — there were no surprises. It was very quick, efficient, and I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs similar services.

Top Hat Chimney & Roofing came out this past Saturday in freezing weather to inspect our fireplace and flue. Elijah shared a very thorough and professional inspection report confirming the safety of our fireplace and flue. This inspection allows the building of a fire with confidence in our fireplace during these extremely cold temperatures. Thank you for outstanding service!!
