Chimney Waterproofing

Most masonry materials are porous and will absorb large amounts of water over time.  Common brick is like a sponge absorbing water and wicking moisture to the chimney’s interior. The result is defective mortar joints, cracked crowns, efflorescence, spalling, cracked bricks, and more, which if not maintained, will compromise the structural integrity of the chimney. Although waterproofing the chimney may seem to cost a few dollars initially, this preventative maintenance measures will save tons of money in the future and can prevent a partial or full rebuild of the chimney.  When it comes to waterproofing the chimney (stone or brick) Veteran Home Pros is ranked No. 1 in Baltimore County, MD.  After Veteran Home Pros has identified and resolved the leaky chimneys, etc., our Frederick County, MD, residents are extremely pleased with our service and our product.

Our Company Profile

A Chimney Expert was originally established in 1977. The owners (Hungarian refugees) mother’s home burned completely down from a chimney fire. That was all it took to convince the family to learn the trade of chimney cleaning which was very popular in Europe. In addition, it was the only place to properly learn the chimney trade and also the only place to find the appropriate and correct tools necessary to sweep chimneys. They then brought their tools, their trade, and their experience to the United States with the goal to prevent others’ from suffering such a catastrophe. Thus, A Chimney Expert was born which has now become Veteran Home Pros. They united to ensure that the integrity and reputation of the company would be a major priority.

The Variety of Our Chimney Services

As you read this, Summer breezes have sent Frederick County, MD’s cold winter weather packing for another season.  Why clean & inspect your chimney now? Because chimney maintenance is due every year about this time.  Here are some important reminders of why it’s crucial to have your chimney inspected and cleaned if needed during the “off-season”.

  1. Creosote is a flammable, potentially deadly material that accumulates in your chimney with every fire you burn or every time your oil furnace is running.
    Over time it builds up to the point where it can actually catch fire inside the chimney which will pose a serious threat to your life, home, and family.

  2. Inspections and cleanings are easier to schedule this time of year. The “off-season” is more convenient for you and us.
  1. The unpleasant odors associated with chimneys in the warm summer months can be reduced, if not eliminated, with spring cleaning.
    Creosote harbors noxious smells that are easily triggered by summer’s heat and humidity.  Ridding the chimney’s accumulated creosote prior to summer months helps keep those disagreeable odors at bay.
  1. Any needed repairs are more easily accomplished this time of year than in the Fall time.
    Finding and completing any needed repairs now ensures that you will have seamless operation when you need your chimney the most!  The repairs are also less costly in the spring and summer months.
  1. The peace of mind that comes from knowing your chimney maintenance is taken care of ahead of time is invaluable.
    When Fall’s first foul weather figures in the forecast, you’ll be ready for many relaxing evenings by the fire.
