The Damage Water Can Dored roof house with two chimneys and cloudy skies

So, how does water negatively affect the state of your fireplace and chimney? Well, first of all, it can easily get absorbed into your brickwork and mortar and cause problems. It causes various types of decay, and it is known to trigger mold accumulation and clogs, as well. Add rust, rot, and stains to the mixture, and you are looking at a big mess.

Obviously using a fireplace that is experiencing problems of this magnitude is not an option, and it could easily put your home in some serious danger. That is why we work as hard as we do to find the right solutions for your unique needs.

Preventative Maintenance

So, why types of services should you invest in before the rainy season starts? Well, first things first, our crew can address any repairs you may need. Getting your system back in prime condition before putting in any preventative features is vital for guaranteeing better results down the line.

Once everything is patched up, we will apply components that guard against potential water damage. One of these things is a chimney cap, which covers the flue and keeps rainwater from easily entering through your chimney. Another step to take is ensuring your chimney crown is in good shape and built well.

Do you need flashing installed? Our team can handle that, too. Finally, let us waterproof your masonry to ensure water cannot enter your brickwork. When it comes to waterproofing, using the right products is a must. They must offer adequate protection while being vapor permeable so that preabsorbed moisture and other fumes can escape.
