In addition to roofing problems causing leaks and damaging people’s properties and roofs, chimney stacks also have a lot to answer for, and in many cases chimney stacks can prove to be very detrimental to a property. Chimney stacks can cause leaks through perished lead work and flashings, and they can also leak if they haven’t been pointed adequately. The obvious causes of the main amount of chimney damage derive from natural weathering and storm damage, which can unfortunately mean a chimney restoration or a complete chimney drop and re-build at any time of the year. In addition the actual chimney itself can also cause damage not only to the roof, but bad weather can also cause loose chimney pots and poor flaunching around the top of the chimney stacks which in turn can mean falling obstacles.
