Waterproofing Needs For Every Homeowner

Spring showers have come and gone, but waterproofing is still vital for winter. Unlike rain water that falls and flows, snow will sit on a chimney and roof until it melts, and then it melts slowly. Winter damage can be the most devastating, and it’s 100 percent preventable.

Chimney waterproofing & chimney sealing in Goffstown NHWaterproofing Sealant

A professional chimney sweep can apply a waterproofing sealant to your masonry, crown, and flashing, for protection against precipitation year-round. This vapor-soluble sealant, keeps water molecules out, while letting gases escape. When you have your chimney waterproofed, you’re putting a barrier between your masonry and the weather – preventing water and winter damage. At Black Moose Chimney and Stove, we apply ChimneySaver, the industry-trusted waterproofing agent that gets the job done, but doesn’t change the look of your masonry. We continually choose ChimneySaver’s laboratory tested and field proven products because we want the best for our customers. Ask us about ChimneySaver today.

Annual Inspection

You may not think the annual inspection is important for waterproofing. However, it is one of the best steps you can take for preventing a chimney leak. If there is a chimney problem, the average homeowner won’t notice it until damage is already done. When you schedule your annual chimney inspection with Black Moose, you can rest assured that your chimney is ready for winter. We check all of the important components of the chimney designed to keep water out.

  • The Chimney Cap
    You might not see the chimney cap is damaged or has shifted from a view down below. A certified chimney sweep will check the cap, and install a new one if necessary. The cap keeps out water year-round, as well as animals, wind gusts, and keeps sparks in the flue.
  • The Chimney Flashing
    Many homeowners and handymen think it is okay to install flashing with no experience or training! This is never recommended. If you aren’t certain your flashing was installed correctly, you should have it checked right away. Our chimney sweep swill check the flashing for shifting, placement, visible nails, and make sure it is treated with a waterproofing sealant.
  • The Chimney Crown
    The crown will only function properly, if it was made properly. It should be specifically sized and shaped for your chimney, should have a specific shape and slope for optimal water runoff, should reach from the flue opening to the edge of the chimney, and have two inches of overhang. At Black Moose we specialize in crown repair and rebuilds.

Masonry Repairs

If your inspection this summer identified masonry damage, and you haven’t had it repaired yet, it will be impossible to adequately waterproof your chimney. You should schedule your masonry repairs, updates, and rebuilds before the fall rush. Otherwise, you may be left in the cold, your chimney will be susceptible to extreme water damage, and your holiday season may be ruined by costly repairs. Black Moose offers masonry repairs and waterproofing year-round. Schedule now, and you can rest easy knowing your chimney will be ready for burn season.

I wanted to give 5 stars but they are very busy which meant I had a good wait for both the inspection/cleaning, then for a quote on repairs and then for the repairs. Their prices seemed a little high to me but I have nothing to compare with as they were highly recommended by someone I trust and other companies had plenty of negatives reviews which kept me from getting additional quotes. I am happy with the work and they promptly returned to fix a mistake that had been made. Chris the inspector, Jennifer in the office, and Alex and his repair crew were all pleasant and took the time to answer all of my questions. Alex and his crew even took their shoes off (it was winter) before entering my house without even being asked! So if you are not in a rush and want to ensure you chimney is as safe as possible then I think you'll be happy with Black Moose.

After a recent sweep of our chimney, it was discovered that our flue tiles were cracked. Black Moose techs were hard working, detail oriented and professional! Nice jobs guys! See you next year for my cleaning!

Excellent I highly recommend Black Moose Chimney and Stove; Kelly and Liam are awesome, they did a great job. Extremely professional, arrived early, went through everything with a fine tooth comb ensuring pellet stove was thoroughly cleaned. They also were respectful of my home, conscientious and cleaned up after themselves. Made sure stove worked prior to leaving and told me to call promptly if anything came up afterward. Will definitely use them again.

We've had Black Moose clean our chimney for a number of years.But recently, we had an emergency situation at our home involving our chimney & oil furnace flue, which was caked full of soot from a malfunctioning furnace. They came & cleaned out both flues in no time, even going up on the roof with snow on it! They cleaned up after their work in the interior rooms where the oil furnace and the woodstove are located. Great work. Reasonable prices. Very nice people. You can't go wrong with Black Moose.

Goods: The technicians know their business, very efficient in cleaning/inspection along with cleaning up after the 'dirty work'.Others: Communications could be more effective. Despite early coordination about scope of work (multiple flues within same chimney) the estimate provided did not reflect this and the final invoice was significantly more than the estimate provided.Quote for follow-on chimney relining was significantly more than that offered by other companies in the area (and far more than neighbors experienced for similar work accomplished by other companies)
