Here in Charlotte, we have our fair share of severe weather and rain, and our chimneys can really suffer as a result. We can’t change the weather, but we can be proactive and take preventive action to help protect and preserve our chimneys. How? With professional waterproofing services!
It can be tempting to head to your local hardware store and pick a waterproofing product for a DIY job. Unfortunately, the products offered are not typically made with chimneys in mind. This can be a real problem.
The problem is that the waterproofing products you’ll find in your local hardware store are not vapor-porous, they’re sealers. They may work wonders at keeping rain and snow from seeping into your masonry, but they’ll also trap vapor inside. The result: you won’t experience water damage from the outside, but your chimney’s masonry will deteriorate from the inside out.
You see, the brick and mortar of your chimney is porous and for good reason. With the gas produced during combustion and the rising and falling of temperatures, the brick and mortar needs to be able to breathe out the moisture so that it isn’t trapped inside of the chimney. But when you waterproof your chimney with a sealer, you’re preventing that vapor from escaping.
WHAT IS INVOLVED WITH PROFESSIONAL WATERPROOFING?
When you have the professionals at SirVent come to waterproof your chimney, you’re getting waterproofing that is tailored specifically for the health and longevity of your chimney. We use only the best and most trusted chimney waterproofing products – products that are designed to keep water out, but also allow vapor to escape through the masonry.
Unlike sealers, our waterproofing products won’t alter the appearance of your masonry, because they are absorbed into the brick as opposed to creating a film on the surface. And that’s great news, because we want to preserve the look and function of your masonry for as long as possible!
