Chimney waterproofing is necessary to keep water from leaking into your home.
When most people think about maintenance and repairs to their chimney, they do so out of concern for the risk of fire damage to their Marietta, Georgia home. What you should also be concerned about is that without effective chimney waterproofing, you could have the opposite problem: water damage. While water damage doesn’t happen instantly or potentially cause the immediate loss of your home, it can still pose a serious problem. Water damage can eventually affect structural integrity and lead to mold, which poses a health hazard.
At Swept Away Chimney, we recommend an annual inspection and cleaning to keep your home’s chimney in top condition and make you aware when chimney waterproofing is needed. Our technicians are highly trained and experienced to diagnose water issues and perform the corrective action needed. The problem can originate at any of the components of your chimney system, so it takes a trained person to isolate the issue.
We utilize proven chimney waterproofing materials and processes that are unlike waterproofing products used for other applications. Our sealant is ten times more effective than competing products while being 100% vapor permeable to handle the vapors that are produced during chimney use. Between the intricate process needed during chimney waterproofing and the attention to using the right products, we do not recommend that you take on this project yourself.
