Summer is usually the off-season for our chimneys, and for most, it’s the perfect chance to take a step back from worrying about things that could go wrong. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. The summer months can bring downpours that showcase surprise leaks in your chimney. The good news is that finding leaks in the off season gives you the opportunity to have repairs made before you need your chimney for warmth and comfort. Waterproofing your chimney is necessary, and it’s very smart if you want to avoid further damage to your home. If you aren’t sure what to do about leaks and waterproofing your bricks, give Chimney Master Dallas a call and schedule an inspection and repairs.
What does Waterproofing Involve?
Waterproofing your chimney includes a few simple but necessary steps. Once they’re completed, your chimney will remain leak free. Most waterproofing involves checking the brick and mortar for damaged areas that need repair. Once the faulty area has been identified, the brick can be restored and a sealant applied that will keep leaks from occurring again. Sealing the chimney and crown will keep water from causing further damage for many years to come.
