Leadwork and Chimneys

Chimney’s are the most exposed part of your property and serve as an essential component of the heating and ventilation system. It is very important to inspect the condition of your leadwork and chimney regularly, as well as repair any issues promptly. If overlooked for too long, a stone or brick chimney can be a significant hazard. The cement or mortar mixtures securing chimney pots and stacks can deteriorate over time leaving the structure susceptible to falling and damaging the property.

“Had a couple of roofers quotes . Unlike some others, they gave good advice and only stated what was actually needed. Really straight forward to deal with and they supply a clear quote of work they would complete. Was completed efficiently with no hassle and as per the price quoted. This would highly recommend.”

The issues listed below can affect the integrity of your roof, pose safety risks and impact the overall function of the chimney. If your chimney has any of the following issues, contact Home Counties Roofers and our roofers will visit your property. 

Flashing problems
Flashing is the material used to seal the joint between the chimney and the roof. If installed incorrectly or it becomes damaged, it can lead to leaks and water infiltration.

Leaks & Water Damage
Water can damage the chimney structure and cause damage to the roofing materials and interior of the property. Signs of water damage can start from rotting or mould. 

Masonry Issues
Exposure to weather and temperature fluctuations can cause the masonry in the chimney to deteriorate. This will require our roofers to repair or replace damaged bricks or mortar joints. 

Chimney Cap Damage
Chimney caps play a crucial role in preventing water, debris and animals from entering the chimney flue. This will require repair or replacing damaged and missing chimney caps. 

Flue Liner Problems
The flue liner is crucial for the safe operation of the chimney. If damaged or missing, it can increase the risk of a fire hazard and therefore needs to be replaced or repaired. 

Insulation and Air Sealing
Insufficient insulation and air sealing can cause heat loss and drafts, increasing your energy and heating bills significantly. 

If you think your chimney is affected by any of the issues listed above or you aren’t too sure, contact Home Counties Roofers and we can provide a free site visit to help you find a cost effective, long term solution. 

Leadwork is an essential component of a roofing system especially where two different roofing/ building materials join. Below is a list of common issues that our roofers often come across. 

Cracking and Splitting
Leadwork can deteriorate over time due to exposure to external elements such as weather conditions. This is important to fix promptly, otherwise water damage and leaking can take place. 

Corrosion
Lead flashing is susceptible to corrosion over time. This should be checked and replaced. 

Poorly Installed
Poorly or incorrectly fitted lead can cause severe roofing issues.
