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 in Maidenhead 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 for 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 Maidenhead 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. 

Chimney leadwork is an essential component of roofing systems and below is a list of common issues that our Maidenhead 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. 

Inadequate Sealing 
Improper sealing around a chimney can result in water infiltration. Home Counties Roofers are very experienced with chimney sealing and can ensure proper sealing, preventing water from entering the structure. 

Corrosion and Rust
Lead flashing is susceptible to corrosion and rust over time. They must be checked and replaced. 

Flashings Separating From Masonry
In the case that the lead flashing is not securely attached to the chimney’s masonry, it can separate over time due to weathering and general structural movement.
