All masonry chimney construction materials, except stone, will suffer accelerated deterioration due to prolonged contact with water. Masonry materials deteriorate quickly when exposed to the freeze/thaw process, in which moisture that has penetrated the materials periodically freezes and expands, causing undue stress.
Preventing Water Damage
We can fit chimney caps, also called rain covers, which are probably the most inexpensive preventive measure a homeowner in Fairfax can employ to prevent water penetration and damage to the chimney. Chimney caps have long been recognized as an important chimney safety and damage prevention method for many years in Fairfax.
Waterproof Your Chimney
Most masonry materials are porous and will absorb large amounts of water. Standard brick is like a sponge, absorbing water and wicking moisture to the chimney interior. Defective mortar joints or improper mortar or brick can significantly increase the tendency to absorb and convey water to the interior of the masonry chimney.
