Keep Your Chimney Looking Great With Masonry Waterproofing
Brick and mortar chimneys can deteriorate due to the corrosive nature of rain, snow, sleet, and ice. But you don’t have to sit by and watch the years take a toll on your masonry chimney! Here at CinderBox Chimney Services, we apply ChimneySaver masonry water-repellent to chimneys in Indianapolis, Zionsville, Carmel, and the surrounding communities. This miraculous product is designed specifically for chimneys and can protect your chimney against water attack for years and years. Here’s how it works:
- We start by checking the masonry for any current damage. If mortar joints are receding or cracks are present, we’ll need to first repair the mortar joints. If brick is severely water damaged, we may need to replace it before applying the water repellent.
- Once any needed repairs are made, we simply apply the water-repellent product to the chimney and, just like that, you can kiss water-related masonry damage goodbye.
The reason we choose ChimneySaver over any other sealants or water repellents on the market is that it works better than anything else! It’s vapor-permeable (which is important for a chimney because the fire in your fireplace or stove produces vapor and needs to be able to escape) and it reduces water penetration by 99.9%. Additionally, it’s water-based, safe for the environment, and doesn’t alter the beauty of your brick and mortar. Other products may be colored or leave a sheen on your chimney, but ChimneySaver water repellent won’t alter the look of your chimney at all.
Here are a couple of other reasons to love ChimneySaver:
- It carries a 10-year warranty when professionally applied.
- It protects against efflorescence, stains, mildew, fungus, and freeze/thaw damage.
