Is Your chimney crown Damaged

Let Our Experienced Techs Help you

That sloped layer of concrete, the chimney crown, is what keeps water from damaging the mortar in the bricks beneath it. It also seals the gap between the liner and the outside chimney. When it has little cracks, the freeze-thaw effect makes those cracks grow bigger. It’s like losing shingles on the roof. If your crown is damaged, there will be leaks.

What is a chimney crown?

  • A chimney crown is a large slab that covers the top part of the chimney. Unlike a chimney cap that is usually made of metal and covers the opening of the flue, the chimney crown covers the entire top of the chimney. Chimney crowns are usually made of metal, stone or concrete.
  • They should be made of the strongest material available so that it can easily withstand years of weather, abuse, and exposure to the elements. It keeps out moisture, and, if adequately build, will stand the test of time.

What do I do if my chimney is damaged?

Water can easily absorb into the chimney and trigger many issues that will cost you money in necessary repairs. Water weakens your structure and can lead to rot, rust, cracks, and holes.

You need to keep your crown and chimney protected, so that water troubles don’t arise.

Chimney crown damage can often be hard to spot because it is impossible to see it from the ground. Instead, this damage can only be detected during chimney sweepings or inspections.

Poorly maintained chimney crowns can develop cracks or holes that allow water to enter the flue or the firebox.
