Your Brickwork Is Absorbent

Soon, you will notice cracks, holes, and other structural issues throughout the system. Once things start to break down, you system will start to decline in efficiency too. It won’t be long before you experience draft and airflow issues. In fact, a chimney that is breaking down should not be used at all, because the risks of fires and carbon monoxide exposure increase significantly.

In the end, you will need to pay a lot of money for expensive and time-consuming repairs before you can put your fireplace to use again. Investing in affordable waterproofing services now is a much better option than draining your bank account for costly work down the line.

We also use the best products available to keep your system as structurally sound as possible. When you invest in paints or sealers from the store, they are typically not vapor permeable. Why is this important? Well, if your chimney cannot vent out vapors or pre-absorbed moisture, it will continue to break down from the inside. Most paints merely seal the brickwork, which stops rain from working its way, which is terrible for your masonry chimney.
