Majority of roof leaks stem from the chimney area. Both chimney caps and crickets are vital to ensure water flows properly from the roof and chimney area. R2 Roof Guys, LLC will inspect the area to determine if there is water penetration and suggest the best route for repair.
Chimney caps are protective coverings that adhere to the top of the chimney. They help protect your chimney from rain and other debris, along with critters and downdrafts. In addition to damage on the top of the chimney cap, if the mesh on the cap is clogged or separating from the rest of the metal, the entire cap should be replaced.
Chimney crickets are vital to help direct water away from the the flashing and masonry of the chimney. Without a crickets water can sit behind the chimney which can cause rotting and lead to wood penetrating into the attic and house.
