If you have a masonry chimney and don’t have a chimney cap installed, chances are water is getting soaked into the masonry. Think about it this way. When it’s raining out you’d rather have an umbrella than just a baseball cap. When you wear a cap, your shoulders get wet. When you use an umbrella, your head and your body stay dry.
It’s simple really. Masonry is a sponge. When it rains it most likely is taking on water and if it is, there is a good chance the water is making it into your attic. When’s the last time you looked up there?
