We Stop Chimney Leaks Fast In Indianapolis & Beyond

A chimney leak can cause a host of problems and lead to a long list of expensive and time-sensitive repairs — that’s why you have to act fast at the first sign of water! Where’s the water getting in and how can you stop it? Call CinderBox Chimney Services and we’ll take care of it.

When we’re called out to investigate a leak for our neighbors in Indianapolis or a surrounding community, we always check a few very likely entry points first, like the chimney crown and the masonry.

  • The crown is simply the cement or concrete slab that covers the chimney opening just below the chimney cap. This important component is one of the chimney’s only defenses against water intrusion, which is why it’s critical that it be properly constructed and in good condition. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case.
  • The other main culprit is the masonry itself. Even though brick and mortar are strong and durable materials, water penetration and the freeze/thaw cycle that occurs as temperatures fluctuate can lead to cracks, spalling, and other types of deterioration that only make it easier for water to get in. The longer masonry damage goes unaddressed, the greater the water problem (and the water damage) will be.
