Calhoun GA chimney waterproofingBy scheduling chimney waterproofing service for your chimney, you can significantly extend its productive life.

Of all the repair work a chimney might need during its lifespan, masonry repair is one of the most common – and one of the most expensive. While chimney bricks and mortar are strong and capable of holding up well in the elements, neither lasts forever.

How We Do Chimney Waterproofing

There are several excellent waterproofing products that do a superior job of sealing the exterior surfaces of your chimney. Our crews use only top-rated products that not only seal effectively but also create a “vapor barrier,” which allows the bricks to “breathe” and not retain naturally occurring moisture.

We use a hand-held sprayer to apply the sealant, and when we’re finished, you’ll have solid protection for your chimney’s masonry for up to 10 years.

When correctly applied, chimney waterproofing can literally save a chimney by preventing the widespread damage we see regularly throughout Chattanooga and neighboring communities.

How Water Damages Chimneys

Bricks are porous, and so is the mortar that holds them together. Bricks and mortar are also prone to cracking and decay. This can happen as a result of:

  • Lightning strikes
  • Earthquakes
  • Pounding hail
  • Problems with the chimney footing
  • Inferior materials used in the construction of the chimney
  • Normal house-settling
  • Freeze-thaw cycles
  • Plain old age

When this kind of damage happens, bricks and mortar can allow water to move in, leading to deterioration either sooner or later.

We work on Chattanooga chimneys that are nearly destroyed by water damage. We see interior damage to walls, ceilings, attics and flooring, all because of neglected chimney leaks.

You can’t keep bricks from cracking, but you can keep water out of the cracks. That’s the benefit of a professional chimney waterproofing job.
