Here's a fact By doing this preventative maintenance, you will potentially save yourself hundreds or even thousands of dollars in future repairs including to your roof. Water is extremely invasive, so anything you can do to keep it out in the first place is well worth the additional effort and cost.
By waterproofing your chimney, we can reduce the water penetration into the masonry by 99.9%! The process is also 100% vapor permeable, which means it won’t trap water vapors that may pass through the bricks when the chimney is in use, unlike other products found in most home improvement stores.
Chimney saving solution comes in both solvent (mineral spirits) and water-based formulas. The water-based formula is the most popular that we use however, if a water repellent has previously been applied to the masonry, we recommend the solvent-based chimney brick waterproofing formula.
Moisture from a variety of sources is always present in masonry and concrete. Sealers and silicone coatings form a water resistant surface film which trap water vapors inside. If these vapors cannot escape, they will contribute to spalling, scaling, deterioration, and freeze-thaw damage. This solution is a 100% vapor permeable, non film-forming water repellent that penetrates and lines masonry pores.
