The Sound Of NOT Silence Thanks To A Water Drip In The Chimney, Again

Photo of light reflected through paperweight then filtered to look snazzy so that I have an image to include on this post. Think of it as water dripping or my mind frazzling. The choice is yours.

I LOVE OWNING a house in this suburb.  I’m not being facetious here.  Really, I do.

We are extremely lucky to live in a home built for us by a builder who was a pain in the ass to work with, but in the end he built a good solid house.

Comfortable and inviting. Most of the time.

However, last week after a huge spring thunderstorm our chimney started leaking water… again.

It’s been twenty years since we had this house built and this is not the first time this has happened. Nor is the first time I’ve been DISPLEASED about the drip… drip… drip… sound coming from rainwater as it runs down the inside of the chimney and drops onto the top of the metal chimney insert in the fireplace in the family room.

Drip… drip… drip…

MOST IRRITATING.

~ ~ 🏡 ~ ~

WE HAD THE chimney cap replaced about ten years ago and that took care of the drippy sounds back then.  But there was large hail during this recent thunderstorm and I’m guessing that it damaged the chimney cap in such a way as to allow the water to drip… drip… drip… as water is wont to do.

In two weeks we’ll be meeting with a representative from the company that made the chimney cap and he’ll take a look at it.  And also he’s going to give us an estimate about how much it’ll cost to have the roof replaced on the house because it’s getting close to the time to do that, too.

Oh joy.

THAT BEING SAID FACETIOUSLY.

~ ~ 🏡 ~ ~

NOW YOU ARE in the loop about what’s going on here in Chez Bean.  As a loyal and true personal blogger I had to tell you, my gentle readers, because like they say, write about what you know.

And I know that you’re EITHER thinking to yourself thank goodness we don’t own a house OR you’re thinking to yourself about that sad time in your life when you had to shell out the big bucks for roofing repair &/or replacement.

Thus I shall end this post in which I’ve talked about the realities of life by telling you that when it is raining outside and I’m at home, I’m hiding in the rooms farthest away from the family room wherein the drip… drip… drip… is the loudest.

Because woman on the edge here.

NOT ALTOGETHER HAPPY.

  1. Are you sure you’re not secretly living in our house? This has been our problem ever since we moved in 17 years ago. We replaced the roof, we replaced the chimney cap… and still during certain storms (not all, which is beyond frustrating) we have a leak. Not a big one, but enough to discolor the ceiling which I have bleached within an inch of its life over the years. It drives me crazy!
    (And btw, if you are living in the basement? Come on up for a cuppa!)

    1. river, yes your problem sounds [no pun intended] like ours. When we replaced the chimney cap 10 years ago all was well, but now the drip… drip… drip… is back. I’m blaming it on the hail, but that doesn’t mean that I’m liking it. That noise is annoying, so I’m hiding upstairs in a guest bedroom until it’s resolved.

  2. I’ll trade your chimney for our leaking bay window, A. Bean. Over the years, we’ve had the window “repaired” by several roofers. Whenever we have a wind-driven rain for 12-24 hrs from a Nor’Easter, it continues to leak. Last fall, during one of the hurricanes, the leak became a waterfall and eventually the ceiling collapsed. Once again, we’ve had it repaired so we’re holding our breath until the next storm. Oh, the joys of being a homeowner. 🙂

    1. Jill, that is an awful problem. I’d go bonkers with that kind of leaky mess. And the ceiling collapsed? Oy vey.

      We used to have one window that leaked when it stormed because a woodpecker loved to peck on the wood around the outside frame of the window. We replaced the window + frame with a vinyl one and it solved the problem because the Woody Woodpecker doesn’t like to peck on manmade substances.

  4. Been there done all that as well Ally Bean. Now I live in an apartment where the laundry room roof leaks but at least I don’t have to hear the drip, drip, drip…yet I wait for the day that the leak comes across to my side of the dividing wall.
    While it’s nice not to have the financial responsibility of projects like these, I am so used to handling them and just doing things that need doing life is an ongoing adjustment in pretending that I can ignore simple chores that need to be done. I’m not always good at that.

  5. The thing about water leaks inside the house is that they are not melodious like the ones outside. I love the pitter-patter of a soft spring rain…outside. Inside not so much. My hearing isn’t so good anymore but dang I can hear a faucet leaking. We are in our home 16 years. Does that mean we will need a new roof in 4? Yikes!

    1. Kate, you’ve explained this problem perfectly. Outside the sound of rain is a delight. But inside the house the sound of rainwater is anxiety-producing and I take it as a problem to be handled stat. We have a 25 year roof on this house and were told when we built it that we could expect in reality for the roof to last 20-25 years. So, you know, it’s time to perhaps buy a new one. 😑

    1. Betsy, roof shingles come with stated life spans. That is, the ones we have are for 25 years, but we were warned that in our humid climate we might need to replace them earlier, like at 20 years. At this point the roof looks awful, but if it’s still doing its job, then I can live with some ugly.

      1. Our roof was replaced sometime before we bought the house. The previous owners said they did it, and they were here for six years. I guess we’ll use that as our guide. I suppose if it starts leaking or shingles start popping off, we’ll know it’s time. I hope you get your situation sorted and fixed soon!

  7. Once upon a time, we had a wonky roof that wept tears when it rained and sprouted waterfalls with heavier storms. We fixed it, we thought. It disagreed. We fixed it again, we thought. It proved us wrong. During a spring gully-washer, with rain pouring down in buckets outside, BFF raced around putting buckets under the new waterfalls springing forth inside.

    Moral of the story:
    “You can never have too many buckets!”

    Good luck!

  9. Homeownership is both a bane and a blessing. We have about 3 years left on our roof, the expert says. A few weeks ago, our tree trimmer spotted some mold/mildew on the north end of the roof and warned us to spray it with Clorox and a detergent. Dawn? It sounds like a job for our son, high up on a ladder and all.

  10. The new roof I’ve been overdue to get for about five years is becoming more and more of a must do for me. I’m tired of looking at the discolored spots near the tops of the walls in all four corners of my house where you can tell water’s getting in… and they’re only getting bigger and uglier with all this rain and snow. I remember when I was a kid, our house had several places that leaked like a waterfall during the rain. It amused me as a kid. As a homeowner…… uh, no. I guess if there’s a bright spot, at least my water seepage doesn’t make a drip drip drip sound…

    1. evil, buying a new roof is a drag. I understand your reluctance to face up to the problem. We bought one on a previous house and while it was necessary it was also the price of a great vacation– that we didn’t take. You are right though, if there’s no drip… drip… drip… sound bothering you then that is something to be thankful for.

I’ve never been around this chimney problem but it sounds like you can’t even mute it a bit like you would with a drip from a faucet.

    Shall I wish you hail damage from your recent storm? Mom and Dad always ended up with a virtually free roof from hail damage. Once it was softball sized hail that punched a hole right through the roof! I have pictures somewhere. It was odd but they would start to talk about how they should be considering a new roof and the next thing you knew there was a hailstorm.

    I could send you a handful of earplugs.

      I know that hail storms can cause roof damage but I doubt that this recent one did that. The hail was too small. Your parents certainly knew the trick to getting a new roof. Now how do I go about manifesting a hail storm with large enough hail to damage the roof? As if I could. 🙂

  12. I can sympathize with you. In my case it’s not the chimney (knock on wood) but needing a replacement roof. We’ve had 4 major MAJOR wind storms in the past year and each time there has been damage to our roof. This last time a few weeks ago, Husband finally decided that a new roof was in order (Yay! – not said sarcastically. I’ve been lobbying for a new roof for a while).

    Then our appointment with the roofer last week was postponed when he came down with the flu. So now we are delayed until next week to find out the financial damage – and it won’t be pretty.

    Roofs are one of those critical necessities and yet there is no buyer satisfaction in getting a new one 😕

For me there’s a kind of anxiety while waiting to find out how much a homeowner project is going to cost. And when it comes to roofs, if past experience proves true, it’s going to cost one heck of a nice vacation for you [and maybe us] to replace it. Honestly, if there could be a more boring way to spend $$$ I don’t know what it is… 🤨

  24. Ah yes, the joys and the headaches of home ownership. Our tale of woe occurred on the opposite level of yours, involving that system that city and suburb folk don’t have to think about: the septic. We inherited an old and uncertified system (meaning only that there was no paper file: it had been installed before Vermont began regulating such things) when we bought the house in 2007. For many years we didn’t think much of the fact that the toilets backed up whenever we had the combination of a heavy rain, company, and laundry. (The perfect storm). An idiosyncrasy of life in the country, we thought. It’s actually a fun story, now that two years have gone by. I think I’ll blog about it. Thanks for the suggestion, Ally. 🙂

I was running water in the kitchen sink (a double sink) just like all the other sinks, or letting it drip, as it had been brutally cold so the pipes wouldn’t freeze. The entire double-sink PVC pipes fell apart in my hands … it wasn’t nice what I said or the names I called the original plumber. Called a plumber that someone had endorsed. At 10:00 p.m. on a Saturday night, snow coming down like crazy, the plumber shows up … a few grunts and groans while using the channel locks and the pipes were back together. This was not the first time they had come apart – I was washing some plums a month after the original install, and I heard a kerplunk and looked under the sink … I keep a dishpan under each sink. Pipes had come apart. I have no words for the things that happen in the house, and, by far, the water emergencies always trump other emergencies or issues.

His son was/is a plumber, but he didn’t think he was worthy enough to take over his clientele, so he wrote a letter to every customer saying he was retiring and not turning over his book of business to anyone. I chose the first plumber because they had moved to the neighborhood and were open 24/7/365. They’d been in business several years, no issues with the BBB. They acted like hoodlums when I complained and demanded to know why my basement needed to be ripped up a second time for a clog. I asked my hair stylist who own a small shop and she/husband bought an old house with many plumbing quirks who they used – they endorsed this new plumber. He told me going forward to have those PVC pipes tightened professionally every two years, even though I don’t have a garbage disposal which jars the pipes. I asked him to put on plumbers putty, but this is not the norm anymore; they use seals which expand with hot water and seal immediately (right … just like mine did).

  28. Prior, I didn’t know about that proverb but I get it. This drip… drip… drip… is annoying. HAVE I MENTIONED THAT? I’m lucky in that I can hide in a part of the house where I cannot hear it. I’ll be *fascinated* to learn how much this is going to set me back. 🙄

    I’m happy to know that you like my photo. I use pixabay sometimes but when I can I use my own photos. They may not be as professional as pixabay, but they’re mine. Still there’s a place for both in personal blogging.
