Split level home leaks around fireplace...

Posted by Chuck Campbell on September 22nd, 1997 08:56 PM

We purchased a home with sunken living room and
fireplace. Every time we receive a substantial
downpour (common in this area), we notice water seeping
out around the bottom of the brick fireplace (between
mortar as well as weeping from pits in the brick).

We are unable to determine whether the water is coming
down from above or perhaps seeping into the house at
ground level. Several fireplace repair companies have
looked at the fireplace but have been unable to
determine the source of the leak.

Any ideas about where to look for the problem? Any
tips or techniques would appreciated. Also references
to good repair companies in the Houston, Texas area
would be welcomed.
