All new and existing masonry chimneys are susceptible to water damage and even if repaired, chimneys will continue to deteriorate if they are not protected. ChimneySaver, which comes with a 10 Year Warranty, is the first water repellent specifically developed to protect chimneys from the severe weather conditions to which they are exposed.
ChimneySaver is a water repellent - not a water sealer. The difference could save you hundreds, or even thousands of dollars in repairs because sealers can actually damage masonry.
There are approximately 40 million masonry chimneys in North America and the most common problem with these structures is water penetration. Water causes over 1 billion dollars in damage annually in the form of staining, loss of insulation value, freeze-thaw damage, deterioration, and ultimately structural failure.
ChimneySaver contains patented siloxanes small enough to penetrate most masonry pores up to 1/4" or more. These special siloxanes form strong bonds with the silica in masonry and concrete. Because of this bonding process, one application of ChimneySaver provides up to ten times the water repellent p rotection of typical sealers.
