CHIMNEY WATERPROOFING — West Orange NJ

Most masonry materials are porous and will absorb large amounts of water. Waterproofing is necessary for the protection of your chimney as brick absorbs water allowing moisture through the chimney interior. Defective mortar joints or the use of improper mortar or brick can greatly increase absorption and transmit water to the interior of the masonry chimney.

Proper flashing will be embedded into the chimney masonry and consist of both step and counter flashing along with an ice and water shield membrane underlayment.

Flashings are custom made at the job site to insure a proper tight fitting seal between your roof and chimney. When done properly by our experts, this flashing will keep water out of your house for many years.
