We’re Proud To Offer Brick Chimney Waterproofing Services For A Safer, More Attractive Chimney
Rain. Sleet. Snow. Moisture in all forms can leave your masonry chimney looking worse and worse every year. Although both brick and mortar are porous and naturally inclined to absorb a small amount of moisture, when cracks, spalling, or other water damage occurs, the amount being absorbed can go from negligible to a major problem in no time. In fact, brick and mortar damage is often responsible for devastating chimney leaks.
Is your chimney masonry showing signs of water-damage? Moisture damage can threaten, not just the beauty of your masonry chimney, but its safety and efficiency as well. Some of the most common signs of moisture damage we see in masonry include:
- Vegetation/Plant Growth
Although we’re fully capable of performing any needed masonry repairs, we’re firm believers in taking preventative measures when they’re available. That’s why we proudly recommend professional masonry waterproofing services.
ChimneySaver – The Industry’s Leading Masonry Water-Repellent
Here at Ground to Crown Chimney & Fireplace Services, we use the industry’s leading brick chimney water-repellent: ChimneySaver. This amazing product comes in water and solvent based formulas, both of which are capable of providing years of water protection.
How It Works
ChimneySaver’s water-repellent products are 100% vapor permeable, which is incredibly important. Brick and mortar will naturally absorb some moisture vapor when your fireplace or stove is in use. But if you apply a paint or silicone sealer to your masonry in efforts to waterproof it, you could trap that moisture in the brick, where it could continue to cause internal damage. With ChimneySaver, any moisture vapor in the brick can still escape, but any water will be prevented from entering.
