Cross Chimney Leaks & Masonry Damage Off Your List Of Worries With Chimney Waterproofing

Did you know that 4 out of 5 chimney issues are caused by moisture? It’s true! While water is essential for our survival, it can be detrimental to the survival of your chimney. Wondering what you can do to really protect your masonry chimney so that it stays beautiful, strong, and leak-free throughout your lifetime? You’re in the right place.

Here at Trinity Chimney Service, we’re proud to offer our customers in Columbia, MD and the neighboring communities the very best leak prevention service: chimney waterproofing. We use ChimneySaver water repellent, which is truly the best performing, most trusted masonry waterproofing product out there, to give our customers a decade’s worth of protection.

But before we get into how ChimneySaver water repellent works, let’s talk about some of the major problems and types of damage it prevents and protects against.

How Does Moisture Damage Brick Chimneys?

When a brick chimney is exposed to rain, snow, sleet, and ice, and it begins to wick in excessive moisture, it’s in danger of developing the following:

  • cracking
  • staining
  • molding
  • eroding
  • flaking/spalling

Additionally, mildew, fungus, and algae can form on the brick and in the mortar joints. All of this damage can make an otherwise beautiful, strong chimney unattractive and can significantly shorten its service life. By investing in an affordable waterproofing service now, you can save yourself the cost of a full or partial chimney rebuild in the future.

How Does ChimneySaver Protect Against Brick Chimney Damage?

So how does ChimneySaver water repellent work and why is it far better than most “waterproofing” products you find in big box stores?

ChimneySaver has these benefits:

  • environmentally friendly and non-toxic
  • resistant to mold, mildew, and algae
  • non-glossy and texture- and tint-free
  • 100% vapor-permeable
  • 99.9% effective
  • fast drying

It also protects against some of the most destructive processes, like efflorescence and staining and the freeze/thaw cycle, which is what happens when moisture expands and contracts with temperature fluctuations.

Other products just can’t compare because they have these drawbacks:

  • typically paint-based and vapor-impermeable
  • shiny, textured, or tinted, which alters the natural beauty of your masonry
  • unable to protect against the freeze/thaw cycle, mold, mildew, algae, and efflorescence

So if you’re looking for a way to protect your chimney against future leaks and water damage, get 10 years of worry-free protection with ChimneySaver. The team here at Trinity Chimney Service has extensive experience applying this system and we guarantee fast, effective results.
