Common Waterproofing Questions
What damage does water cause?
Rust, rotted woodwork, staining on your walls and ceiling, masonry decay and discoloration, firebox damage, and clogging to name a few…
But what we really want to emphasize is the damaging effect of the freeze/thaw process. When the water in your bricks freezes and expands in the winter, it causes a lot of cracking throughout your masonry, which then leaves pathways for more water to enter down the line… It’s a vicious cycle that professional waterproofing can help to stop.
Why should I trust a pro?
Failing to trust a professional for your waterproofing work can lead to a lack of vapor permeability (i.e. your system’s ability to breathe). All too often, the products purchased by the homeowner will successfully keep water out, but they also seal the chimney, so that any water inside remains trapped. This means deterioration will only continue to occur.
Along with this, you’ll want to make sure the job is done thoroughly, and a trained sweep is sure to do just that. Any spots that are missed or overlooked will remain vulnerable to water damage, meaning you’ll still need repairs later on, despite the hard work you’ve just put in.
Do I still need waterproofing if I don’t see damage?
You know it! In fact, waterproofing is a surefire way to ensure it stays damage-free for years to come.
Also, keep in mind that not seeing damage doesn’t mean it’s not there… This is why annual inspections are pushed so much in this industry – we want to keep you safe!
What if I already have damage?
If you’ve already experienced damages throughout your masonry or to any chimney components, having them addressed before applying waterproofing products is a must. Fortunately, we’d be glad to assist with any masonry repairs, chimney cap replacements, crown repairs, and more.
When’s the best time for chimney waterproofing?
We recommend having waterproofing done in the warmer months, as this will give the products ample time to soak in and dry. Bad weather can hinder this, so shoot for a sunny week! It’s also helpful because your system isn’t typically seeing much use in the spring or summer.
If you’re eager to get your waterproofing booked, call us to your home Main Street, Bank Street, Turnpike Road, Fuller Road, Lake Street, Equestrian Drive, Sunrise Drive, Elm Street, Prospect Street, Dean Road, Armstrong Road, Huntington Lane, Brookside Road, Miles Street, Garney Street, Lincoln Street, Stelle Street, Woodwind Hills Drive, Courtwright Street, Charles Drive, or any road or street in between.
