How to Find the Source of a Stone Chimney’s Leak



If your stone chimney’s leaking, grab a water hose and conduct some tests to find the source.

Danny and Joe welcome callers’ questions each week on the Today’s Homeowner Radio Show.

Here’s a question from our Nov. 24 broadcast:

Maria from Georgia says, “We built our house in ’80, ’82 and I have a chimney that is sealed stone, and when we get very heavy rain it’s coming inside and it comes all the way down to the floor.

“I do have a new roof and it still does it. They told me that they sealed it very well on the outside but it’s still coming in. I was wondering, what can I do?”

Listen to the embedded audio clip above for the answer!
