Your masonry chimney goes through a lot over the course of a year. Between the heavy rains of spring, the snowy days of winter, and the freezing temperatures that always show up around the holidays, your brickwork and mortar can wind up facing a lot of wear and tear! Because of this, it is important to ensure it stays adequately protected.house with umbrella graphic

Our CSIA certified team is experienced, reliable, and dedicated to bringing you top-of-the-line care!

A Strong & Vapor-Permeable Seal

So, why trust in trained professionals for your waterproofing work? Because they will know which products to use and how to apply them in a manner than guarantees efficiency. One of the biggest problems with do-it-yourself sealers and paints are their lack of vapor-permeability. They seal the masonry so that no water can get it, but all of that pre-absorbed moisture can’t get out, either.

As you can imagine, any water that gets stuck inside of your structure will simply continue to break it down, which defeats the purpose of waterproofing altogether. All in all, this isn’t a job to tackle yourself. Leave it to us to guarantee the job gets done right!

Some other great features of our waterproofing products include their eco-friendly components, their ability to block out harmful things like mold and mildew, and the extra layer of protection they provide against the freeze/thaw process. You also won’t have to worry about getting a thick, glossy seal ruining the look of your brickwork and, best of all, they come with a 10-year warranty, so you’ll be all set for the long haul!

Is Your Chimney Leaking?

If you’re eager to get your system waterproofed, then there’s no time like the present to get it done. That being said, it is imperative that any and all of your leak-related issues are addressed before investing in these services. Otherwise, your masonry will continue to crumble and break down, and your home will still be at risk.

How can we help with this? Well, if you need a chimney cap or chase cover installed, we have got you covered. These devices are designed to keep water out of your flue, and they help keep animals and excess debris out, too. Along with this, we can repair chimney crowns, rusted flashing, deteriorating masonry, and more. Whatever problems you are facing, we are certain we can help you out!
