Chimney Waterproofing Near Dallas: Enjoy The Protection Of Professional Chimney Water Repellent

As a homeowner, few things are as upsetting and anxiety-causing as water problems and leaks. Whether you hear the drip…drip…drip…in your fireplace or see discoloration, decay, rust, or vegetation along your chimney, discovering a chimney water problem is unpleasant, to say the least. Leak repairs take time and cost money, but what if there was a way to safeguard the masonry of your chimney so it’s better protected against water intrusion? There is!

The team at Hale’s Chimney & Fireplace Solutions is proud to offer those in Dallas/Fort Worth and beyond the added protection of chimney waterproofing and masonry water-repellent services. We use professional, industry-grade products from ChimneySaver that are proven to protect the brick and mortar of the chimney, without trapping vapor produced during combustion inside of the brick.
Once the ChimneySaver products are professionally applied, water molecules are unable to penetrate the masonry, which is normally porous. In other words, your masonry won’t be under constant water attack, as it is without professional waterproofing products. Ready to get started? Call or book online today.

Are Professional Chimney Water-Repellent Products Different From Paints & Sealers?

Yes! The ChimneySaver brick waterproofing products we use differ from the paints and sealers typically found at the hardware store.
How so?

  1. One, the products we use do not alter the look of your masonry or leave a glossy look or appearance. Instead of sitting on the surface of the masonry like paints and sealers, these products are absorbed into the masonry itself.
  2. Additionally, our waterproofing products are 100% vapor-permeable, and allow the masonry to breathe, while still keeping water out. This is important because the masonry of the chimney has to be able to release vapor that’s produced during combustion. If not, this moisture can become trapped inside the masonry, leading to deterioration and further destruction.
  3. Finally, our products last. Professional waterproofing products for your chimney ensure a protective seal for years to come, most coming with a 10-year warranty when applied by an industry expert.

Should I Hire a Professional or Is DIY Chimney Waterproofing Possible?

Whether you’re browsing online or walking around a hardware store, there are tons of DIY waterproofing products out there claiming they can do the same job as a professional-grade stuff. The truth is, DIY chimney waterproofing attempts rarely stand the test of time. Areas get missed, the products don’t hold up, and if not reapplied time and time again, even the “protected” areas will suffer. In the end, you’ll waste time, money, and labor doing a job that won’t offer your chimney the long-lasting protection it deserves.

Professionals have the expertise to assess the condition of your chimney and choose the most appropriate waterproofing materials and techniques. They also have access to high-quality products that may not be readily available to consumers. A professionally waterproofed chimney is more likely to provide long-lasting protection against water damage.

In addition, any work on or near a chimney can be hazardous, especially if it’s tall or in an awkward area of your roof. Climbing ladders and working at heights poses a risk of falls or injury. Professionals are trained in safety protocols and have the necessary equipment to work safely at heights.

To sum up, waterproofing a chimney requires knowledge of the appropriate materials and application techniques. If you need care, count on our experts for a job done right.
