With two chimneys leaking this customer didn’t hesitate to give Bone Dry Masonry a call to fix this issue. We sent out our excellent sales representative Nathan out to take a look. He suggested a water test to figure out exactly where these leaks were coming from, the chimney or the roof. After moving forward with the water test Nathan and Alec were able to pinpoint right where the leaks were coming from. On chimney number one, the leak was coming from the crown; on chimney number two, the flashing and a couple joints were causing the issue, and the pipe was corroded as well. Nathan suggested to this customer, for chimney number one: to demo 9 bricks x 5 courses and rebuild 9 bricks x 5 courses with a step out corbel (45 brick), wrap a 9x13 flue tile with expansion joints and install 9x13 flue tile with stainless steel rain cap, pour a new concrete crown and drip edge, grind out and tuck point 25 joints and reseal flashing and replace three shingles. For chimney number two, a tear down and replace with a “B” Vent was suggested for this utility chiney. Bone Dry tore down this chimney, replaced decking, install ice and water shield and shingles, demo all masonry to the roofline frame opening with 2x4 framing, decking, ice and water shield, 3”x3’ double wall “B” Vent, storm collar and rain cap, and also installed an aluminum liner kit to the water heater in the basement.
