Chimney Crown Repair And Replacement

A chimney’s design takes into account the fact that water, snow, and sleet will be constantly attacking it and trying to get in. Inside and out, chimneys are built with defenses against water, and your chimney’s crown — the masonry up top, below your chimney cap — is one of the most important parts of that defense system.

A properly functioning chimney cap directs water, snow, and sleet away from the flue, helping to keep it dry and to avert the damage that comes with encroaching water. A cracked or spalling chimney crown, however, might be allowing water direct access to your flue and your home — and starting your chimney down the road toward unsafe, expensive issues.

Home Safe Hearth & Chimney technicians will examine your chimney crown during your chimney inspection, which should be done once a year. But in-between inspections, if you notice cracks or flaking, crumbling mortar, call us — it’s important to repair a damaged crown as soon as possible.

Leaky Chimney? It Could Be Your Crown

Leaks can originate in a variety of places on your chimney — unfortunately, sometimes several places at once. But the areas that were designed to help fight against the encroachment of water are often the first to sustain damage, and your chimney crown is at the top of that list.

If you’re experiencing a leak, call Home Safe Hearth & Chimney — we’ll inspect your whole system, including your chimney crown. If the crown needs repair, we can repair it to last. Our CSIA Certified technicians can also help extend the service life of your chimney crown by applying a water repellent that will help the masonry defend against water for years to come.
