ChimneySaver Water Repellent

According to the Brick Industry Association, chimneys require special attention and maintenance to prevent costly damage caused by water penetration. Because chimneys project above the roof line, they are vulnerable to the elements. Nearly every chimney you encounter has signs of water damage! The first step is to fix chimney leaks is to determine the cause and then find the best corrective measures.

ChimneySaver is the first product developed specifically for chimneys and has been used successfully by leading chimney professionals for over 25 years. It reduces water penetration into the masonry by 99.9%, according to ASTM tests conducted at the University of Wyoming.

ChimneySaver is also 100% vapor permeable, which means it won’t trap water vapors that need to pass through the bricks when the chimney is in use. Unlike other products found in most hardware or home improvement stores, ChimneySaver is a non film-forming product that prevents water intrusion and at the same time allows the masonry to remain breathable. Sealers and silicone coatings form a water resistant surface film which trap water vapors inside. If these vapors cannot escape, they will contribute to spalling, scaling, deterioration, and freeze-thaw damage.

ChimneySaver is the number one brick water repellent professionals use when it comes to preventing chimney leaks and it's backed by a 10 year warranty.
