Yes, Your Chimney Is Vulnerable To Water Damage
Because chimneys sit above the roofline, they are more vulnerable to harsh weather and the elements. Most chimneys have some signs of water damage. Water penetration can wreak havoc, causing serious deterioration. Unfortunately, traditional water sealers found in hardware and home improvement stores are not designed for use on masonry and can actually cause you more problems.
Where Traditional Sealants Fall Short
There is always moisture present in masonry and concrete from various sources. Traditional water sealers and silicone coatings will form a water-resistant film that traps water vapor inside the brick.
Leaving water vapor trapped inside your chimney’s masonry contributes to and escalates spalling and scaling as well as freeze-thaw damage. This can be catastrophic, resulting in the need for costly repairs.
ChimneySaver Water Repellent
For optimal results, you want a masonry chimney water repellent specifically designed for use on chimneys. We recommend a professional ChimneySaver application service to ensure that you have the best protection possible for your brick and mortar.
There are many benefits to scheduling a ChimneySaver application service.

You get the water protection you want without the damaging effects of other waterproofing sealants.
Don’t Get Caught In The Cold
With our cold and snowy Chicago winters, snuggling up to a cozy fireplace can be a real comfort. Using your fireplace can help keep your home warm and comfortable throughout the winter while helping offset high heating bills.
