Generally made of mortar or concrete, your chimney crown sits atop the masonry, helping to divert precipitation away from the flue. Since it’s exposed to the elements, it’s not uncommon to see a need for repair. Whether your issues are minor or significant, Davis Brothers Chimney Sweep and Masonry can bring your crown back to working like new!
When Do I Need Chimney Crown Repair?
Your chimney crown plays a vital role in protecting your chimney against water damage. As such, crown damage is a severe issue that should be promptly addressed. Cracked crows can lead to extensive water damage in the chimney as well as your home’s interior. If you’re scheduling annual maintenance, our technicians can find issues while they’re still relatively small. However, there are a few indicators you might pick up on in the meantime, such as leaks or cracks in the brick, mortar, or crown.
What Can Davis Brothers Chimney Sweep and Masonry Do?
Every chimney, crown, and repair is different. With this in mind, we’ll thoroughly inspect your chimney crown’s condition, as well as the state of your corbel, flashing, and coping to make informed recommendations regarding repairs. We pride ourselves on a firm belief that chimney professionals should never sell you needless services. If we find that a relatively small repair will get your crown back to proper function, that’s what we’ll recommend!
Minimal damage or hairline cracks
If your crown is structurally strong but has a few hairline cracks, we may apply a crown coat repair. This sealant is applied over the entire crown to leave a durable waterproof barrier.
Major cracks or spalling
If your crown has sustained significant cracks, or if we find that flaking and chipping (spalling) is present, your best course may be to install a brand new crown. Our technicians can safely remove your damaged crown and obtain one that will look great and protect your chimney.
