All masonry chimneys will absorb water. Most of them dry out very quickly, but when the chimney takes on an extreme amount of water, it can cause problems. This happens when multiple storms come through in a short period of time, never allowing the chimney brick and mortar a chance to dry out. This moisture literally soaks through the chimney brick, causing condensation on the inside of the chimney, which of course then runs down the walls of the firebox and into your home.
At Luce's Chimney, we will quickly track down the problem, repair your chimney and once again keep you safe and dry. While water will not cause your house to go up in flames, this should be considered an emergency because of the amount of damage water can do to your home in a short amount of time.
