Need Chimney Waterproofing Services? We’re the Team To Call

One of the best things you can do for the longevity of your chimney is to protect it from rain and water damage. Chimneys are famously susceptible to water damage because they are often – quite literally – in the eye of the storm. In addition, brick and mortar are water-soluble and weaken over time if no preventive measures are taken.

Second only to chimney sweeping and annual chimney inspections, both of which are crucial for your safety, you will add the most years to your chimney by waterproofing it. Homeowners tend to put chimney waterproofing at the bottom of their to-do list because it’s largely a preventive measure. But just because it’s preventive doesn’t make it unnecessary!

In fact, waterproofing is one of the most important ways you can protect your home from the elements. Taking precautions to waterproof your home can save you significant amounts of money in the long run, and keep your appliance working safely for years to come. Ready to get started? We are, too.

Is DIY Chimney Waterproofing an Option?

If you’ve strolled through your local hardware store or even browsed some online home improvement tools, you’ve probably spotted some DIY waterproofing solutions on the market. Do these work?

Here’s the deal. It’s imperative to have your chimney treated with a waterproofing product that blocks water out of your chimney, while still allowing your chimney to “breathe” (meaning water vapors won’t get trapped inside your chimney when it’s in use). Unfortunately, store-bought sealers usually only do the former (blocking water), without accomplishing the latter (vapor permeability) – which means your bricks will still break down. Not to mention, most of these products need to be applied time and time again to stay effective.

When waterproofing with us, rest assured that Ace Chimney Sweeps uses ChimneySaver’s Water Repellant, the top chimney brick sealer on the market. This product is proven to reduce water penetration into masonry by 99.9% (according to ASTM tests conducted at the University of Wyoming).
