Water Based Chimney Sealer

Chimneys take a beating from severe weather year round. Water penetration is the single greatest cause of deterioration and damage. Waterproofing your chimney is a simple and easy task that will extend the life of your chimney for years and will protect against expensive repairs.  Chimney leaks are a frustrating problem for many homeowners; waterproofing your chimney is the best way to solve chimney leaking problems. While there are several potential sources for water intrusion on a chimney, the brick and mortar joints are usually the most obvious places to start.

Klere-Treat WB

Klere-Treat WB is a premium grade masonry water repellent used to seal brick and masonry without altering the surface appearance, it is not just another chimney sealer.  It is designed to penetrate into the brick and work entirely below the surface.  It doesn’t change the look or color of the brick and provides exceptional protection against efflorescence, staining, salt and freeze thaw spalling for porous building materials including brick, concrete, natural stone, and grout.  Surfaces remain breathable to allow trapped moisture to escape.

Concrete Snap Tie Leaks

Snap Tie Leaks:

How to stop running water coming from a snap tie pocket in a basement wall.

1. Remove the snap tie from the wall, wire brush the surface of the concrete.

2. For holes bigger than an 1/8″ , fill with Waterprlug Hydraulic cement. Allow the Waterplug to set for 30 minutes

3. Brush on a heavy coat of Epoxy Waterproofer over the Waterplug and overlap 1″ all the way around the patch.

The Epoxy Waterproofer can be used without Waterplug if the pocket left by the snap tie is less than 1/8″ in diameter.

This repair is permanent and will prepare your wall to accept further waterproofing coatings.
