Did you know that deteriorated brickwork weakens the chimney's integrity? If the brickwork on your chimney becomes deteriorated it can allow cold drafts, water and insects to invade your home.
Not to worry, we can help prevent this from happening!
Superior Chimney can apply chimney saver, which has been developed specifically for use as a waterproofing agent on masonry chimneys to aid in preservation of integrity preventing brick chimney repair needs. This formula is vapor permeable, which means that it allows your masonry chimney to breathe out, but not in. Thus, water that has penetrated your masonry chimney, or moisture that has originated from inside, is allowed to escape, while the waterproofing agent prevents water entry from the outside.

Important Tip: Paint, or any non-vapor permeable water sealer, should never be used as a waterproofing agent because it will trap moisture inside your masonry chimney, accelerate deterioration, and cause brick chimney repair needs.
