Charlie: Lee in Alvin says he has an older home with a soft chimney brick-and-mortar. What can I do to seal it better, to prevent or reduce the weeping?
Tom: Masonry waterproofers. They’re on the market. Make sure it’s not a one-size-fits-all for wood and everything else. Make sure it is a true masonry waterproofer. And, there are some products on the market, what they call brick hardeners. Actually puts a harder surface on the outside, so you can take a look at those too.
Charlie: He also says his AC ducting in the attic is getting some internal water dripping in several areas. What’s wrong with that?
Tom: The ducts are broken and they need to be replaced.
Charlie: Replaced. They’re sweating.
