Water penetration is the number one cause of damage to masonry chimneys. Water and moisture damages both the inside and outside of masonry chimneys. During the year when temperatures are above freezing during the day, and dip below freezing at night, damage is done to masonry chimneys when the water trapped inside expands during freezing.
All new and existing masonry chimneys are susceptible to water damage and, even if repaired, chimneys will continue to deteriorate if they are not protected. Water damage can be prevented. Chimneys are highly exposed to the elements and, if left unprotected, are susceptible to structural deterioration. It is important to address this problem before serious damage occurs. Protect your masonry chimney with high-quality waterproofing.
Full Service Chimney uses a water repellent which allows your chimney to “breathe”, allowing interior water vapor to escape while protecting the exterior brick or stone from absorbing more water from the outside elements.
