Unfortunately, a masonry chimney can suffer damages from rain and snow. Many homeowners think that their brick masonry chimney is safe from moisture damage, but even strong, durable masonry stones often cause major chimney problems for homeowners. Snow and water get behind the masonry, then cause the bricks or stones to deteriorate, which cause them to crumble, crack and fall off the chimney. This isn’t just an unsightly appearance for the home, but can be a very costly repair if left unrepaired.
Waterproofing is available for masonry chimneys. It is an affordable way to protect your masonry from costly damages and repairs. The waterproofing will repair any small leaks, then provide a protection to the masonry, so no additional moisture can accumulate. Flashing is done along the masonry chimney, which blocks any type of rain or snow from entering, and leaving the masonry dry and stable. The liner is free from moisture too.
If there are cracks, leaks and loose bricks on the masonry, then these will all be repaired, then the waterproofing will be applied. Waterproofing is affordable, and can save homeowners a lot of money down the road on costly repairs from damaged chimneys and liners.
