Help Your Chimney Win The Fight Against Water With Professional Waterproofing
If you’ve had a chimney leak in the past or you’re dealing with one right now, you know what a nightmare it can be. Here at Complete Chimney & Fireplace Solutions, we’ve seen the incredible and devastating impact water can have on chimneys, and we hate to watch our neighbors throughout North Jersey experience it firsthand — that’s why we’re big advocates of masonry waterproofing.
Masonry materials naturally take on moisture, but over time, this wicking of water can lead to deterioration, mold, and damage within your chimney itself, as well as the framing and drywall surrounding it. The only prevention and resolution option that truly works is masonry waterproofing.
How Does It Work?
When waterproofing masonry, we apply a sealant that equips the masonry to repel water. This sealant prevents the masonry from absorbing the moisture, but still allows vapor to pass through, which is important to the function of the chimney system.
Here at Complete Chimney & Fireplace Solutions, we use ChimneySaver water repellent, which is an eco-friendly formula that reduces water penetration by 99.9%. It also protects against moisture-related damage, like efflorescence, staining, mildew, fungus, and the freeze/thaw cycle that can cause the brick to deteriorate from within.
Unlike other sealants and waterproofing products, ChimneySaver doesn’t leave a sheen on your masonry or change its color or appearance at all. It simply provides protection and keeps water out so your masonry chimney can stand strong and look great, no matter how much rainfall and snowfall we see. And the best part is: it carries a 10-year warranty.
