Brick and mortar are porous, which allows small amounts of water to enter your chimney masonry. Cold weather then causes water trapped inside masonry to freeze and expand, causing more damage.
To prevent expensive chimney repairs, we recommend hiring a professional for masonry waterproofing. Protect your chimney from being water damaged.
Signs your chimney is water damaged:
- White mineral deposits (efflorescence)
- Plant growth
Chimney waterproofing products don’t change the appearance of your chimney, but they do protect your chimney from water penetration and harsh freeze-thaw cycles. Waterproofing can also preserve bricks already damaged.
