Give Your Chimney Years Of Water Protection With ChimneySaver

Every year, we get called upon to put an end to leaks and repair the damage caused by them. Many times, these leaks have been developing and wreaking havoc behind the scenes for a while, with homeowners none the wiser. But you don’t have to wait for a leak to do extensive damage to give us a call. We also offer leak prevention services, like masonry waterproofing.

Why Does Masonry Need Waterproofing?

Wait a minute, why does masonry need waterproofing?

Even though brick and mortar are strong, durable materials, they aren’t impervious to the effects of water. Since both are porous, they absorb a certain amount of water each time it rains, snows, or sleets. Unfortunately, as temperatures rise and fall, the water absorbed by the masonry can expand and contract, causing mortar to crack and crumble, brick to crack, and brick facing to pop off. The best way to prevent this and to keep your masonry looking good and standing strong is to have a masonry waterproofing product professionally applied.

What Is ChimneySaver & Why Is It Better Than Other Waterproofing Products?

Here at Chim-Cheroo Chimney Service, we use ChimneySaver water-repellent to protect the chimneys of our neighbors. This amazing product is specifically designed to protect chimney masonry by preventing water molecules from entering the brick and mortar, while allowing the vapor produced by combustion to easily exit the masonry. This is important because, if the waterproofing product you use is not 100% vapor permeable, vapor produced during combustion can be trapped inside of the masonry and cause the cracking and crumbling you are working so hard to prevent.

ChimneySaver, on the other hand, is 100% vapor permeable and is 99.9% effective at keeping moisture out of your masonry. The product has a sheer, non-glossy look, so you won’t have to worry about it altering the look of your masonry. What you can expect is 10 years of water protection, freeze/thaw protection, mildew/fungus protection, and efflorescence/stain protection.
