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.

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.

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.
