Most Homeowners do not realize that Water causes more damage to chimney’s than even chimney fires!
Being in the northwest we get a ton of rain, and that rain absorbs into the chimney. Chimneys are very porous and when moisture is absorbed along with freezing or thawing the breakdown (cracks ) begin to set in and leaking chimney’s begin to happen.
