Expert Chimney Waterproofing in Middletown NJ

Rely on Middletown Chimney Repair for Prompt, Professional Chimney Waterproofing Service in Monmouth County

Because they are made of porous materials, chimneys deteriorate over time. Water seeps into the brick and mortar, expanding and contracting with the seasons. This causes leaks and invites more significant problems. Modern waterproofing techniques can extend the life of your chimney through the application of a waterproof sealant that blocks out water while still allowing the masonry to work as it should.

The sooner you seal your chimney, the more damage you can avoid. Call Middletown Chimney Repair today at (732) 784-4211 to set an appointment to have your chimney inspected for water damage.

When Should I Waterproof My Chimney?

The best answer to that question is: right away! Whether your chimney is brand new or has been around for decades, prevention goes a long way. A good rule of thumb is that you should waterproof your chimney if it is at least 15 years old, even if there is no sign of water damage.

If you plan to waterproof your chimney this year, the best time to do so is before the rainy season starts. Barring extreme weather conditions, we can waterproof your chimney any time of the year.

The Waterproofing Process

The process of waterproofing a chimney is more complex than it may appear. It is not as simple as applying paint to the outside of the chimney to keep water out. The brick and stone need to remain permeable so that harmful gases and small particles can move from the inside of the chimney to the outside.

Modern water repellant products allow chimneys to “breathe” while also stopping water from getting through. The treatment products we use are 100% vapor-permeable, meaning they do not contain acrylics, silicones, or similar sealers that create a film over the surface of brick and stone and prevent water vapor from escaping.

Additional Preventative Measures

Waterproofing is just one way to prevent water from damaging your chimney and your home. We recommend that you consider additional repairs or replacements such as:

●      Chimney cap – The chimney cap is an effective barrier against rain. You should consider repairing or replacing your chimney cap if it is damaged or missing.

●      Chimney damper – The chimney damper closes the flue when your chimney is not in use. It also keeps water from entering your home. You should consider repairing or replacing your chimney damper if it is not working correctly.

●      Chimney crown – The chimney crown keeps water away from the masonry. You should consider repairing or replacing your chimney crown if it is cracked or showing signs of spalling (flaking/crumbling masonry).
●      Chimney flashing – The chimney flashing protects the seams where your chimney and roofline meet. You should consider repairing or replacing the flashing if there are signs of corrosion, loose caulk, or holes.
