The Importance Of Chimney Waterproofing

Ready to ensure your chimney stays safer and in better condition year after year? Then, it is time to invest in waterproofing.

Avoid damage and deterioration by calling on our team of experts to help you out today.

Importance of Chimney Waterproofing

Why Invest In Professional Care

Many attempt to waterproof their own chimney by purchasing cheap sealers or paints from the local hardware store. Unfortunately, this technique can wind up causing more harm than good. The problem is, many of these products trap pre-absorbed moisture in, and they don’t allow your system to properly ventilate.

This means that nothing will get in, but nothing will get out either, allowing your masonry to continue breaking down on the inside. Saving a bit of money now will end up costing you a lot more in repairs and restoration work in the future. It’s not worth it! You are much better off trusting in a CSIA certified team of sweeps from the get-go. Mason’s Chimney Service can help you out.

What do we offer? Here at Mason’s, we use Firesafe’s CrownGuard Water Repellent, which is vapor-permeable. This means fumes, vapors, and pre-absorbed moisture can get out, but nothing else can get in! For over 25 years this product has served chimney owners well, and we are proud to incorporate it into our waterproofing services.

We can also waterproof your chimney crown, which plays a big role in keeping your brickwork better protected from the elements. It is important that this part of your chimney stays in optimal condition, so be sure you are not neglecting it, and count on our team to get the job done right.

Looking To Do More For Your Chimney?

Waterproofing is one of the best ways to guard against excess moisture, but there are other services we offer that work to prevent water damage, as well. For example, flashing repair and installation work will go a long ways when it comes to keep water out of your home. It seals the area where your roof and chimney meet, thus making this spot less vulnerable to leaks and other issues.

We can also repair your chimney crown if it is starting to crack and crumble. Like we said, we can waterproof it, but it needs to be in tip-top shape before we do so. Finally, let us install a chimney cap, as this is one of the most affordable and effective ways to keep water out of your flue. Any questions? Give us a call, and we will be happy to help.

For high-quality, mess-free services done by certified and experienced sweeps, count on our crew from start to finish. There is no one better to trust in Cherry Hill and its surrounding areas. We can’t wait to hear from you soon!
