In addition to handling new roof installations and roof repairs around Brighton, Storrington and wider Sussex, my team and I deliver chimney repairs for domestic and commercial clients alike. Below, I’ve looked to run over three of the most common types of repair JAH Roofing Specialists undertakes. It’s not an exhaustive list, however.
So whatever’s ailing your chimney, or if you’ve realised it’s been a long time since yours underwent a thorough inspection and any appropriate maintenance, give us a call on 07897 606 585.
Flashing – A chimney’s flashing seals the area where it meets the roof, preventing moisture from penetrating the roofline. Overtime, it can begin to deteriorate or suffer outright damage, which can lead to leaks and water damage. Dealing with this problem is one of the most common forms of chimney repairs we take on, so give me a call should you be experiencing it in Brighton, Storrington or its surrounds.
Crown – As the name suggests, the chimney crown sits at the top of the column. Its job, much like the flashing that sits below it, is to protect your chimney from the elements. And again much like flashing, it can crack or deteriorate over time. Should you be suffering a leak originating from the chimney, I can investigate the crown and provide any necessary chimney repairs.
Masonry – Just as flashing and crown can deteriorate, so can the bricks and mortar that make up the chimney column itself. For obvious reasons, this can be dangerous. Falling bricks could cause a fatal injury, or damage vehicles and property below irreparably. So it’s important to get in a reputable roofing company to undertake the appropriate chimney repairs – such as JAH Roofing Specialists, who cover Brighton, Storrington, Sussex and all nearby locations – should your masonry be suffering.
