Water Damage

Water damage in a chimney is caused by water entering the mortar crown.  This is a result of water penetration into the mortar with the continual freeze and thaw cycle over the winter months.

Visible water damage includes:

  • Cracks in the masonry
  • Deteriorating mortar joints
  • Spalling –  the result of water entering brick, concrete or natural stone and forcing the surface to peel, pop out or flake off
  • Efflorescent – Efflorescence, a powdery white substance on bricks, can indicate a serious problem with chimneys. Moisture moving through bricks causes white mineral deposits on the brick surface and in the case of a chimney, it may indicate that you need a flue liner.
  • Exterior and interior moss on chimney and mortar

How we repair water leaks and water damage to a chimney

  • Remove and replace spalling bricks
  • Repair any cracks masonry
  • Reseal/replace the flashing insuring proper connection with the roof
  • Spray the exterior surface of the chimney with Chimney Saver water repellent. It will penetrate deep enough to protect masonry from destructive water penetration.
