Chimney Crown

Is Your Chimney Crown Protecting Your Chimney?

We all know that houses need roofs, but what’s keeping rain, debris, and animals out of your chimney? The chimney crown! Every chimney should be equipped with a quality, well-built chimney crown, which is a cement slab that seals off the top of the chimney stack, leaving only your chimney flue exposed. When well-built and well-maintained, the chimney crown can protect your chimney against the devastation caused by animals, moisture, and other intruders. Is your chimney crown still serving its purpose? Our technicians can inspect your chimney and make sure it is!
“My husband and I were very impressed with Chimney Solutions. Jackson did our initial inspection and was kind, professional and responded quickly whenever I had questions, which was a lot! Dominic and Jake installed our gas logs and did a great job and were both very nice. Plus our gas log kits look beautiful and give off an amazing amount of heat, yay! Will definitely recommend and hire again.”

“The service from Chimney Solutions was courteous and professional. Chris did an inspection and was thorough in explaining his findings. We needed a cleaning and some minor repairs around our gas log set. David was professional, kept everything cleaned up nicely, efficient, and took some extra care to make the gas logs look nice. They were able to squeeze us in just in time to have the fire feeling nice for Christmas morning! Will return to chimney solutions for any future work. Thrilled with the results!”

What We Look For When We Inspect Your Chimney Crown

Proper Construction & Materials
The first thing we check for when we look at a chimney crown is whether or not it’s properly constructed. In order to adequately protect your chimney, your crown should have at least some overhang (2″ is normal). Additionally, the crown should have a slight angle to it, which will encourage rain to run off of the crown and away from the chimney and flashing. We also check to make sure your crown is constructed of concrete and steel mesh. A mortar crown will crumble and crack in no time, which brings us to the next thing we check for…

Cracks, Holes, Or Crumbling
If your chimney crown is covered in cracks or holes, or if moisture is causing it to crumble and wear thin, you’ll have water in your chimney in no time. That’s why we thoroughly check the crown for any areas of damage or spots that could allow moisture in.

If we find that your chimney crown is damaged or poorly constructed, our team can make the needed repairs or build you a new crown. Whatever the extent of your needs, you can count on Chimney Solutions to provide you with professional, long-lasting results – guaranteed.

Repairing & Protecting With Crown Sealant

When the crown is simply in need of some crack or hole repair, we use a chimney crown sealant to fill and protect. This sealant provides a durable, flexible waterproof film that protects the crown and prevents future damage. If the openings are large, we use a patching material to fill them before applying the crown sealant. When properly and professionally applied, you can expect the crown sealant to protect your chimney crown for years to come.
