We Can Resolve Masonry Water Problems With Chimney Waterproofing

There are millions of chimneys in the United States, and we’re guessing if you ask any chimney company what the most common cause of chimney problems is, most will give you the same answer – water penetration.

Water can cause thousands of dollars in damage to just one chimney, resulting in staining, masonry deterioration, structural flaws, liner damage, rusted caps and dampers, and more. But no worries – as Cincinnati’s trusted masonry contractors, we are experts in chimney protection.

The Best Way to Protect Your Investment…

So, what’s the best way to protect your investment and avoid these damages? Chimney waterproofing. We waterproof with ChimneySaver, which is a trusted product in the chimney industry and offers the following unbeatable benefits:

  • Protects against severe weather
  • Provides up to 10x the protection of a typical sealer
  • Made of a silicon mixture that penetrates every pore in your masonry
  • 100% breathability – meaning moisture won’t be trapped inside
  • Works on all masonry surfaces (patios, sidewalks, pool decks, etc.)
  • Comes with a 10-year warranty

Keep in mind, too, that ChimneySaver is a water repellent, not a sealer. Why is this important? 

Sealers can still allow damage to your masonry because they only protect the surface of the brick. Repellents go deep inside the masonry – filling every gap, crack, and hole – to ensure water doesn’t stand a chance. This could mean a difference of hundreds, sometimes even thousands, of dollars in repairs.

Do You Need Repairs?

Ready to give your masonry chimney the protection it needs? The first step in this process is to get all necessary repairs completed. This might include repairing cracks, tuckpointing services, replacing missing brickwork, addressing damage from the freeze/thaw process, crown repairs, replacing damaged components, and more. If you’re not sure of the current state of your system, your best bet is to get an inspection booked right away.

Once repairs are done, we can move forward with our waterproofing services.

Note: Waterproofing services are always needed if a new chimney liner has been installed. If necessary repairs are not made, the old chimney will continue to fall apart around the new liner, eventually leading to serious – and potentially dangerous – scenarios for you and your household.
