Say Goodbye To Chimney Leaks With Professional Masonry Waterproofing

Chimney leaks are an unwelcome nightmare for any homeowner. They can cause extensive and costly damage, and even necessitate a total chimney rebuild if damage is really bad. Here at Leonard & Sons Building Service, we’ve seen first-hand just how bad water damage can be, which is why we want to help our customers throughout Chicagoland avoid chimney leaks by providing masonry waterproofing services.

Why Does Masonry Need Moisture Protection?

We all know brick and mortar are strong materials that can last for decades upon decades — why do they need moisture protection? Well, because both materials are porous, water can enter the brick and mortar, where it may expand and contract as a result of temperature changes (freeze/thaw cycle). When this happens, brick can essentially implode and cracks and other damage can occur. Not only can this type of damage allow even more water into the masonry and home and lead to leaks and water problems, but it can also compromise the service life and integrity of the chimney.

How Can Leonard & Sons Help?

Here at Leonard & Sons Building Service, we’re proud to use ChimneySaver masonry water-repellent, which is the only masonry water-repellent developed specifically for chimneys. When applied by a knowledgeable professional, this amazing product can reduce masonry water penetration by 99.9 percent, essentially eliminating water concerns altogether. So, aside from its incredible ability to reduce moisture penetration, what makes ChimneySaver water-repellent such a great option?

  • It’s 100% vapor permeable and won’t trap water vapors produced by combustion.
  • It provides 10 years of protection against masonry water leaks, efflorescence, stains, mildew, and fungus.
  • It doesn’t leave a glossy look on your masonry — in fact, no one will know it’s there except for you and the professional applying it.
  • It prevents the cracking and spalling that can happen as a result of expansion and contraction during the freeze/thaw cycle.
  • It’s water-based and safe for the environment.

If it sounds too good to be true, it’s not! ChimneySaver is proven to work — guaranteed!
