Your brick, block, or stone fireplace and chimney can be waterproofed by Becker’s so that water entry points are properly sealed. Particularly if the water entry point is at the roof line, this can prevent water damage to the home that could cost tens of thousands of dollars.
Protect Your Chimney from Water Damage
Chimney waterproofing is the application of a special coating or sealant to the exterior of a chimney to prevent water from entering the structure. Water damage to a chimney can be severe, causing rusting metal components, deteriorating mortar, and even structural instability. Waterproofing a chimney can help it last longer and protect it from needing a rebuild. The professional chimney masons at Becker’s can inspect a chimney and determine if waterproofing is required. It is generally recommended that homeowners have their chimneys inspected and waterproofed every few years in order to maintain their integrity and avoid costly repairs later on.
Our region is especially prone to precipitation fluctuations and unexpected weather or storms, as mentioned on our chimney repointing page. The majority of the components of a masonry chimney, including brick, mortar, concrete, stone, flue tile, steel, and cast iron, are impacted by direct water contact; all components other than stone will deteriorate more quickly. Because of the mortar used to hold it all together, even a stone chimney can sustain damage. However, waterproofing can be used as a precaution to increase the lifespan of your chimney
