What’s The Best Way To Prevent Leaks? Chimney Waterproofing!
If you’ve read the masonry repair page here on our website, you already know that the masonry of your chimney is porous and naturally soaks up the moisture brought by rain, snow, and ice. You also already know that this moisture can cause all kinds of damage, from discoloration and cracks to holes, gaps, popping brick, and structural weakness — sometimes even a full chimney rebuild. But what’s the best way to keep this type of damage from happening in the first place? Chimney waterproofing!
How Does ChimneySaver Water Repellent Work?
The product is applied to and absorbed by the masonry, and provides a 100% vapor-permeable, non-glossy membrane that protects against all of the following:
- the damage that occurs during the freeze/thaw process
- mildew and fungus
- efflorescence/staining/and other discoloration
What else do you need to know about ChimneySaver Water Repellent?
- When professionally applied, it carries a 10-year warranty
- It won’t alter the look of your chimney or leave a glossy film
- It’s water-based and environmentally friendly
