Deteriorated or improperly built chimney shoulder?

Let Our Experienced Techs Help you

The shoulder of the stack, the sloped area on the stack where it transitions from a broad base to narrow, is a common area where the masonry deteriorates and is the cause of leaks, or it is just not constructed well enough to hold off rain and snow. Often it is built without a proper pitch to allow the water to run off, and as a result, it soaks and leaks its way into the chimney.

Outline

An essential aspect of a well-functioning chimney and fireplace system includes an adequately built chimney shoulder. This is an area of the chimney that shouldn’t be neglected. Chimneys that have a chimney shoulder create ledges that keep rainwater from draining efficiently from the brick or stone. If you believe that you have problems with your chimney shoulder that are causing problems to your home and live in the Charlotte area, please give us a call. We’ll be happy to help you.

What is a chimney shoulder?

A chimney shoulder refers to the sloped sides of a masonry chimney where a chimney changes from a full width at the base to a more narrow width at the top of the rooftop. The sloped chimney shoulder is difficult to flash successfully to the siding of the building which makes it a likely place for leaking to occur.

It is essential to get the problem fixed sooner rather than later because an issue with your chimney shoulder can lead to more costly problems later. Let us know if you have any questions.

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.
