Chimney Rotted?  We Replace Siding, Cedar Trim & Flashing

The siding on the chimney and back side of these houses were in disrepair. There was a metal patch covering a hole, rotted trim boards, improperly installed flashing which caused much of the initial damage and wood used improperly to cover missing caulking. Unfortunately, we see this type of poor craftsmanship all too often with homes using hardboard siding, in Omaha, La Vista and the Papillion areas.

  • Notice the swelling or bubbled up siding near the bottom of each board. This indicates water damage.
  • Notice the horizontal boards that retain water
  • Notice the unnecessary seam near the roof fascia
  • Notice the vertical 1x4 corners that go all the way up INSTEAD of butting up against the horizontal 1x4's
  • Notice the siding which is too close to the shingles and will wick up moisture
  • Most chimney rotting and deterioration is due to water entering near the edge of the gutter. Often there is not enough flashing or the flashing may be improperly installed. We can add the correct flashing and in severe case may ask about installing kick-out flashing to divert large quantities of water. Using a kickout flashing can help keep the majority of the water on a roof from ever coming in contact with the siding.
  • If the siding on the rest of your home is soft, leaking or rotting, we have a solution for that too!


These are all issues which unless you really know HOW it should be done, you would never know that your chimney is built incorrectly.
