Why Have Your Chimney Waterproofed

Water is never good for your chimney system. In fact, water can wreak havoc on your entire chimney system from the inside out. We want to help your system to remain functional and beautiful as long as possible, and that’s why we recommend getting your chimney waterproofed. This is the best preventative measure, and our experts at Black Moose Chimney & Stove is here to help! 

Water is the #1 Chimney Killer

Water and your chimney do not go together, whether it falls indirectly or enters through damaged or exposed parts of the system. It causes rust, deterioration, stains, clogs, weak structure, ruined furniture, drop in safety and efficiency, and more. You may have a leak in another room in the house, and this could be caused from the chimney! This is because water enters through the masonry, but then travels inside walls and floors until it reaches a low point, pools there, to forms a leak. This means your chimney isn’t the only thing at risk. When you leave your chimney open to water damage, it can also damage the rest of your home too.

Water Worsens Winter Damage

Water enters your system during the warm months can cause odors, mildew, mold, and water damage. Water enters during the cold temperatures can do much more. Freezing temperatures freeze the water. As the weather drops, it causes the water to crack the masonry to freeze and expand. As it expands, it breaks apart the masonry. When it thaws again, it moves further into the damaged masonry. As this process repeats itself throughout the winter, this causes serious damage for the structure of your chimney.

Maintain the Value of Your Home & the Life of Your Chimney

Your chimney system brings value to your home, but if it’s neglected, it will not. As a homeowner, it is important to protect your investments and take care of your property. Preventing water damage year-round saves you money. It helps to keep your home beautiful, useful, and brings warmth and ambiance into your living space.

Your chimney is safest and most efficient when it’s swept regularly and inspected annually. For these routine services, you can count on your chimney getting a thorough check up. A professional can detect problems and damage right away, and they have the solutions to troubleshoot your chimney such as applying a waterproof agent to protect your chimney year around.

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)
