Protect Masonry with Water Repellent This Spring!


Your masonry chimney might have worked great for you all winter long, but a wet spring after a long winter can be disastrous for the chimney! At Chief Chimney Services, we recommend our customers, friends, and neighbors avoid expensive repairs and problems by protecting the chimney system against water penetration. To prevent chimney leaks when the weather turns wet, make sure you schedule professionals services with a certified company today. 

First, schedule a chimney sweep and inspection to close out the season. This will ensure your system is clean and free of odors that can ruin your summer when summer humidity hits. It will also be given a clean bill of “health” so that you know it’s safe and obstruction-free when it’s time to burn again this fall. During your NFPA inspection, a technician may catch weaknesses in your system that will allow water in this spring. Because homeowners often don’t know what to look for, this is the best way to stop preventable leaks! Schedule with Chief Chimney Services, and we can get your entire system up to snuff before the first big showers of the spring. 

Chimney Waterproofing Services

One of our most popular services we continue to offer to home and business owners throughout Suffolk County is our waterproofing services. When all the other parts of a chimney system are properly installed, such as the cap, crown, and flashing, we take protection one step further by protecting the masonry. By using ChimneySaver products specifically designed for chimney function, we can prevent water from penetrating the masonry while still allowing heat and gases to escape. Other waterproofing agents or water repellents on the market can prevent water penetration while trapping heat, moisture, and gases inside the masonry. This is unsafe and will actually cause damage from the inside out. ChimneySaver’s vapor-permeable water repellent is the only one that will allow your chimney to ‘breathe” and the only one we trust for our customers. 

When you schedule waterproofing services with Chief Chimney Services, a technician will treat your masonry with the best products available to chimney professionals. We are certified and trained in its application, and it comes with a 10-year warranty. This product will also not change the look of the masonry whatsoever. It only protects, and it protects well. If there are minor cracks in your masonry, this product will not allow water in. It keeps water molecules out and repels them. This treatment prevents dangerous and destructive water damage that can be costly and time-consuming to repair. 

If you haven’t had your chimney waterproofed by a certified chimney professional, now is the time. The appointment is quick and easy, doesn’t alter your chimney in any way, and lasts year after year. There’s no real reason not to waterproof your chimney! Schedule now, and use your tax refund for important chimney services. Schedule waterproofing services with Chief Chimney Services by calling 631-863-2460 or schedule online.
