Chimney Repair

Today we worked on a leaking chimney. I tried out a new product I bought on-line called Chimney RX by Saver Systems. What we did was basically installed a rubber boot over the homes flashing. We also repaired the chimney crown with a product made by the same company called Crown repair. This chimney repair system is what Chimney Sweep companies have been installing for years. You see there are basically over 10-15 reasons why a chimney may leak. The most common is the flashing that is around the base of the chimney. To redo all the flashing by taking up the shingles and replacing everything will cost around $800-$1200 dollars. To install the rubber boot $450-$500. The chimney saver system is a cool product that actually works.

What happens is when a chimney starts to leak a roofer will come out and spread some roof cement on it. And charge you $300-$400 dollars. But the tar will crack and chances are they did not use any fiberglass mess. Takes time. But the chimney saver is good for 7 years before it has to be redone because it is not made out of tar but rubber. It flexes and does not crack. Best of all it has a special bonding agent that will adhere to the block masonry and asphalt shingles.

We will come and do your Chimmey if it is leaking if you live in Athens, Sweetwater, Delano, Niota, Etowah, Madisonville, or Cleveland, TN.

There are many things that may cause your chimney to leak so really you have to fix the whole chimney repair for best results.

Have a bless day,

Leaking Basement
rating starrating starrating starrating starrating star

I had made several attempts to fix my wet basement. I spoke with many contractors and they were outrageous. They all told me I had to dig up my foundation and it would cost thousands of dollars. A friend of mine told me to call a handyman and see what they said. So I Did. Best call I ever made. They installed a french drain, replaced my gutters and installed Drylock to my cinder blocks. my basement hasn't leaked since. Very pleased.”
