The most popular problem to have with your chimney, are leaks around chimney bases.
And more often than not, the culprit is the flashing — the sheet metal or copper that keeps the intersection between the chimney and roof watertight.
When water gets behind faulty flashing, it can do a lot of damage to the roof sheathing and framing and to the ceiling below, so you need to deal with this problem immediately.
Chimney flashing can be done in both lead, copper and aluminum. We are experts working with all materials, and are a full service chimney repair company. No matter which material is used, it must be layered correctly if water is to be kept out. When the chimney is at the bottom of a roof slope, we always install a cricket, a small diversion roof that prevents water from pounding the up-roof part of the chimney. We frame and sheathe crickets just like the rest of the roof, and then completely cover them with a modified bitumen membrane, which is folded up under the chimney flashing. We install asphalt shingles over the membrane to blend the cricket with the rest of the roof.
Because chimneys are such a potential trouble spot, inspect them once every year or two for loose or missing flashing and cracks in the masonry. Small cracks can be sealed with caulk designed to repair masonry. We also recommend that our customers waterproof their brick chimneys every few years with a silicone-based sealer. Not all builders agree, but this is a great way to keep water from seeping into the brick.

From day one meeting with Tony for my estimate I felt comfortable and confident in his work. He was on time and very... professional. He provided me with jobs he's done within my area for me to check out. After my wife and I decided to have him do the work our experience with pro home got even better. There work was very neat, clean and professional. Anytime I had a question or concern it was addressed immediately. Tony was a man of his word, everything he said he would do got done and even extra. This family owned business will be highly recommended to anyone I know looking to upgrade there homeread more

Excellent roofing company. They installed a new roof on my house last week. The price was very reasonable, and Emri... was great to work with. Everything was clearly explained, and all of my questions were answered before and after the job. The crew was very professional and the cleanup was excellent. I strongly recommend Pro Home Construction Incread more
