Custom Copper Chimney Saddles

The purpose of a custom copper chimney saddle is two-fold: to divert the flow of water around your chimney, and to prevent the accumulation of ice behind it. When ice or snow is allowed to build up behind a chimney, it is more likely to find a way to get into your house as it begins to thaw.

After the wood framing and decking is completed (if not already present), the next step is to apply ice & water shield underlayment. This is a self-adhesive membrane that provides excellent protection for this critical area. After the copper saddle is installed, additional ice & water shield is applied to its edges, and is tucked up under the roof underlayment. This provides a complete seal before any of the roof material is applied.

If you are contemplating the replacement of your roof, or if you just need to have a leaking chimney repaired, please contact us. In the case of a repair, we will do all of the necessary work, no matter the type of roof. If a total roof replacement is needed, we will work with your roofing contractor to ensure your chimney saddle is done right the first time.
