Save my chimney

Save my chimney

This picture is an example of a neglected chimney which over the years has been allowed to absorb water and the results are the damaged joints and the destruction of the whole chimney.  This chimney will require a professional to set up staging, cut out loose and bad mortar joints and then apply new mortar to the joints.  There are many clear sealers on the market, they all proclaim to be the best, use my product, but when you read the fine print they all work best when applied to a sound surface.  Clear sealers cannot take the place of mortar and sound solid bricks. Clear sealers, the active solids left behind in the pores of the masonry can only work properly when the mortar joints are tuck pointed tightly and the bricks don’t have spalling faces and the roof cap cannot have mortar missing.  The roof flashing must be in good shape or sealing your chimney will only stop some of the water.

Our products are always made with the highest quality resins and powders.  A technician is always available to offer assistance and guidance in using our products.

Klere Treat WB – Ready to Use Masonry Water Repellent

brick sealer Klere-Treat WB

Klere-Treat WB is a masonry water repellent based on a silane and siloxane. Under the influence of atmospheric humidity, it chemically reacts with and bonds to masonry, forming a highly effective poly-siloxane repellent.  It is highly alkaline resistant and designed for use on brick, concrete block, precast concrete, stucco, limestone, fieldstone and many other natural stones.

Kleare-Treat WB provides superior protection against moisture penetration, thereby preventing the deleterious effects of efflorescence. The deep penetrating application retains it’s natural appearance with no surface build up or darkening effects. The masonry remains completely breathable.

Klere-Treat WB can also be applied to parking garages and flat concrete or masonry surfaces to reduce attack from deicing salts.

The advantages of Klere-Treat WB include:

    • Deep Penetration into surfaces
    • Non-film forming 
    • Does non contain wax, gum resins, silicas or silicones 
    • Unlike many water repellents Klere-Treat WB does not break down due to alkali in masonry. 
    • Resists water penetration for 10 years 
    • Highly resistant to acid rain 
    • Safe water based formula, water cleanup 
    • No toxic fumes or vapors

Drain Only Weep Tubes

leaky building

Weep tubes for masonry weep holes.  Weep holes are the gaps left between some bricks in external masonry walls.  They serve 2 purpose:

Ventilation of the internal wall cavity – Without ventilation, mildew, dry rot and damp reduce the life of the internal wall studs and other building materials within the cavity. Inadequate ventilation is the main cause of “Leaky Building Syndrome”.

Drainage – Water that enters the cavity due to capillary action, condensation, damage, or accidental flooding needs to escape somewhere.

One end of the tube is bent in a downward position to prevent wind driven rain from being forced back into the tube.  This also prevents water running down the wall from re-entering the building. They will not fill with sediment because the fabric filters it, but allows the water to drain.

Standard size weep tubes

Our standard size weep tubes are 3.5 inchess in length and have an outside diameter of 3/8 inches (inside diameter 1/4 inch.)

Custom size weep tubes

Custom lengths are available.
