Chimney waterproofing is a great way to protect the investment you have made In your home. Protecting your masonry chimney is the first line of defense against costly repairs and rebuilds. Chimney Saver protects your chimney from leaks and water damage by forming an invisible barrier that water can’t penetrate.
Sealing with Crown Coat
Small cracks in the chimney crown can be a big problem. Moisture enters these cracks and when mixed with the residue in the chimney this moisture often turns acidic in nature. This can cause the breakdown of the inside of the flue, the mortar joints and can also lead to deterioration of the exterior chimney structure. Another problem that moisture causes with cracked chimney crowns is freeze/thaw damage. The good news is that you can stop this deterioration in its tracks. Sealing the chimney crown is a sure way to prevent this type of moisture damage.
