When it comes to your chimney, leaks and water damage are nothing to mess around with. Moisture loves soaking into porous brickwork, where it can break things down. Your brickwork is really similar to a sponge when it comes to water. If unprotected, it will absorb all the moisture it can, inviting issues like cracking, spalling, and other deterioration.

Another thing that occurs is the freeze/thaw process. This happens when the absorbed water freezes and expands with temperature changes, forcing your brickwork to expand. This invites more cracking and gives water more places to seep in and wreak havoc. As you might have guessed, this process typically occurs multiple times a season, as temps rise and then drop below freezing again. All in all, that’s a lot of strain on your chimney! 

Well, we’re here to ensure crumbling masonry isn’t a reality you have to face. To avoid these problems, we strongly urge our customers to invest in professional chimney waterproofing services. Considering a store-bought sealer or paint? Don’t. These help to stop water entry, but they can also prevent any pre-absorbed water (along with any fumes and vapors) from escaping.

Rather, work with a certified expert that knows what’s truly best for your system. Here at Frechette Chimney, we use products that are resilient and protective, as well as vapor-permeable, ensuring your masonry gets the best of both worlds. No water will get in, and all of that unwelcome moisture will be able to eventually work its way out – a win-win.

Other Water-Related Damages We Repair & Prevent

Water’s effect on your masonry is always a big concern, but there are many other ways water can damage your chimney components as well. Your flashing and chimney cap may rust, your crown may deteriorate, your liner could become compromised, clogs may be more likely, and you may have staining and deterioration throughout the entire system. Along with this, your adjacent woodwork may rot, and you might even spot some mold growth.

We offer repairs for all types of water damage, but the best thing to do is to prevent it altogether by scheduling annual inspections and replacing worn-out components as needed. We can help. When you schedule your annual inspection with us, you’ll always know when issues are present and when it’s time for repairs or replacements. That way, you keep ahead of leaks and water damage.
