Want To Stop & Prevent Chimney Leaks & Masonry Damage? Professional Waterproofing Is The Answer

Most homeowners don’t really think about their chimney until there’s a problem, but that’s not a good thing. Chimneys are exposed to more severe weather than any other parts of your home, which could result in costly repairs.

The brick and mortar that makes up your chimney’s exterior is strong and beautiful, but without proper protection, it won’t always be that way.

You see, masonry is prone to water absorption, and over time, that moisture can lead to cracks and crumbling masonry. Taking the time to protect your chimney against water and weather damage could not only save you thousands of dollars in repairs, but it can also keep your chimney strong and beautiful, decade after decade.

We Waterproof With The Industry’s Best Products

Water is the single greatest cause of deterioration and damage to your chimney, and here in TN, things can be especially brutal. But we can’t stop the rain, snow, and sleet, so what’s the solution? Chimney waterproofing.

Waterproofing your chimney is the easiest and best way to fix your chimney leak issues and prevent moisture-related masonry damage. Taking the necessary steps to protect your chimney will extend its life and do wonders for your wallet, but not all products are worth the investment.

When waterproofing your chimney, you will need to make sure the product used is breathable and allows water vapor produced by the fire to pass through, while preventing rain, snow, and sleet from entering the chimney.

Here at Sweeps & Ladders Chimney Service, we use waterproofing products from ChimneySaver, the most trusted name in the industry. ChimneySaver products are 100% vapor-permeable and reduce water penetration by 99.9%, according to ASTM tests.
