Leak Around Chimney Revealed During a Charlotte NC Home Inspection

April 18th, 2012 · No Comments


While recently inspecting a Dilworth home just outside of downtown Charlotte NC home inspector Preston Sandlin noticed a leak by the chimney.  You can see in this picture that there is a leak coming down along side the chimney.  What caused this leak?  It was the flashing around the chimney.  This flashing has failed and caused a leak right around the chimney area.  If flashing is not monitored over time it will leak.
