Severe spalling and deterioration caused by water penetration
Efflorescence, stains caused by water penetration and leaching salts are unsightly and add to deterioration
Water penetration and freeze/thaw damage result in loss of insulation value and lead to structural failure
All masonry chimney construction materials, except stone, will suffer accelerated deterioration as a result of prolonged contact with water. Masonry materials deteriorate quickly when exposed to the freeze/thaw process, in which moisture that has penetrated the materials periodically freezes and expands causing undue stress. Water in the chimney also causes rust in steel and cast iron, weakening or destroying the metal parts.
Note: While most stone is not affected by water penetration, large amounts of mortar are required to bond the stone together properly. Therefore, a stone chimney - just like a brick chimney - should be protected from the effects of water penetration.
Water penetration can cause interior and exterior damage to your home and masonry chimney including:

Prevent Costly Chimney Repair!
There are approximately 40 million masonry chimneys in North America and the most common problem with these structures is water penetration. Water causes over 1 billion dollars in damage annually in the form of chimney repairs from staining, loss of insulation value, freeze-thaw damage, deterioration, and ultimately structural failure.
All new and existing masonry chimneys are susceptible to water damage and even if repaired, chimneys will continue to deteriorate if they are not protected. ChimneySaver, which comes with a 10 Year Warranty, is the first water repellent specifically developed to protect chimneys from the severe weather conditions to which they are exposed.Please make us a call for waterproofing and seals too across Northwestern, CT.
ChimneySaver is a water repellent - not a water sealer. The difference could save you hundreds, or even thousands of dollars in repairs because sealers can actually damage masonry.
Chimneys are highly exposed to the elements and, if left unprotected, are susceptible to structural deterioration. It is important to address this problem before serious damage occurs.
ChimneySaver is an investment in long-term protection that will help prevent expensive reconstruction. No water repellent, however, is a substitute for good construction and workmanship.
ChimneySaver contains patented siloxanes small enough to penetrate most masonry pores up to 1/4" or more. These special siloxanes form strong bonds with the silica in masonry and concrete. Because of this bonding process, one application of ChimneySaver provides up to ten times the water repellent protection of typical sealers.We offer complete chimney repair and service, Certified Chimney Sweep, Chimney Waterproofing, Chimney Liners, Dampers, Chimney Caps, and Waterproofing brick in CT.For over 25 years we have been delivering chimney masonry and waterproofing services at fair prices across Connecticut, CT.
Moisture from a variety of sources is always present in masonry and concrete. Sealers and silicone coatings form a water resistant surface film which traps water vapors. If these vapors cannot escape, they will contribute to spalling, scaling, deterioration, and freeze-thaw damage.
ChimneySaver is 100% vapor permeable - a non film-forming water repellent that penetrates and lines masonry pores. ChimneySaver offers the best protection because it releases water vapors and effectively reduces water absorption.
Not just for chimneys, ChimneySaver water repellent is the ideal choice for protecting all residential and commercial above-grade masonry. ChimneySaver is the best solution for a variety of exterior masonry applications including; patios, walkways, pools decks, and wall systems.
