Crickets

Expert Roofing and Craftmanship Since 1939

A chimney or roof cricket is a ridge that is usually put on the high side of a chimney that deflects water around the chimney and down the roof. Crickets are essential in preventing your chimney from leaking and can lead to serious problems if they are improperly installed or damaged.

We recommend that crickets be installed on chimneys that are wider than 30 inches and on steep roofs. Kaller Roofing’s masonry and roofing experts have experience in the installation, replacement, and repair of crickets and can answer any specific questions you have regarding your own home and chimney crickets.
