Masonry deterioration accelerates when the chimney is freezing and thawing because of the water contained in it. The water can also rust in the steel and cast iron parts of your chimney, destroying the metal parts as well.
The water damage can affect the interior and exterior of your home. At Patriot Chimney, we have many solutions that can waterproof your chimney.
Chimney caps or rain covers are an inexpensive fix to the problem. The large opening of your chimney, or flue, can collect water and funnel it directly into the chimney’s interior. The chimney cap would eliminate this problem.
We can also install chimney crowns which are the top elements of mason chimneys. These are usually originally built very inadequately. We will build them with effective cement-based mixtures and proper structural integrity.
