You need a chimney cricket

Let Our Experienced Techs Help you

“Cricket” is the term for a water deflector that is installed where the roof rises from the chimney. It is an excellent idea for a steep roof or chimneys more than 30 inches wide. As the rain runs down the roof toward the chimney, the cricket moves the water to the sides and on down to the gutter.

What’s a chimney cricket?

A chimney cricket, also called a roof cricket, is a ridge structure designed to divert water on the roof. It is usually built on the upper back side of a chimney. This cricket sheds rainwater away, rather than allowing it to beat down onto the side of the chimney that is most susceptible to water penetration. It is helpful because it directs water around the chimney rather than letting it pool at its base.

Why install a chimney cricket?

Chimneys are the main cause of most leaking in homes, and this can usually be tied to problems with the sheet metal flashing. The pooling water can cause severe damage and deterioration. Because chimneys are such a potential trouble spot, consider letting Emberstone Chimney Services install a chimney cricket. At Emberstone, we correctly install chimney crickets to prevent against damage from ice melt or water penetration.

I called this morning to schedule a cleaning when my stove started up so badly it wouldn't burn, expecting to see a technician next week some time, but when they found out that my wood stove was my primary source of heat, they said they'd be out in half an hour. My stove is running like new, and the two technicians made zero mess and were so friendly and polite. And to top it all off, they were great with my dogs and two-year-old son.
