All Masonry Chimneys should be waterproofed, if not it could lead to some serious and potentially home threatening damage. Damage such as cracks and other structural problems. Luckily, our Certified Masons are experts at waterproofing chimneys and providing a longer lasting chimney without problems.
As a preventive and life-extending measure, masonry chimneys should be coated with a water and solvent based sealer which can prevent almost all water from penetrating the masonry. Furthermore, the sealer will not allow water to become trapped inside the masonry, thus causing further damage. The result is a properly sealed chimney that will greatly reduce the likelihood of deterioration due to water damage.
