Prevent Leaks & Save Money on Repairs With Our Chimney Waterproofing Service
It’s myth-busting time…
Many homeowners are under the impression that masonry is impervious to damage from something as simple as rain, snow, and sleet. But the reality is that water is masonry’s #1 enemy.
Over time, the weather here in Pittsburgh can do a number on brick and mortar joints, leaving your chimney with missing mortar joints, spalling brick, mildew growth, and a host of other unsightly and structurally compromising ailments.
But the good news is that with Advance Chimney Specialists, Inc., it’s easy for homeowners in the greater Pittsburgh area to protect and prolong the lives of their chimneys.
How do we do it? With chimney waterproofing.
We use a product called ChimneySaver water repellent, which is specially formulated to offer years of water protection to masonry chimneys. Unlike sealants you might find in big-box stores, ChimneySaver is vapor-permeable, which is important because of where we’re applying the product.
You see, every time you light a fire in your fireplace, water vapor is formed, and that vapor needs to be able to leave the masonry. If it can’t, it could damage the brick from the inside out. So, chimneys need a product that will keep larger water molecules out of the masonry, while allowing smaller vapor molecules to flow in and out. That’s where ChimneySaver water repellent really shines.
It’s 100% vapor-permeable, it blocks out rain, snow, and sleet, and with this product, there’s no glossy finish.
Even better? ChimneySaver water repellent offers protection against the following:
- Efflorescence (the white stains that you often see on masonry)
- Freeze/thaw (the destructive process that causes spalling)
And it comes with a 10-year warranty.
