Looking to invest in services that will guarantee more protection for your entire chimney system? Crown repair and protection can work wonders when it comes to keeping your flue and masonry in better condition all year long. Invest in the care you deserve today. The team here at Weststar Chimney Sweeps is eager to help every step of the way.
What Is The Crown?
So, what is the chimney crown? The chimney crown sits at the top of the chimney, and its slanted design helps to keep water from running down the sides of your brickwork. Essentially, the water moves out and away, ensuring less exposure altogether. Masonry is very absorbent, so avoiding water at all costs is vital, especially now when spring rains are prominent.
When chimney crowns are not built from the right materials and the appropriate standards are ignored, your chimney will not stay as protected, and the crown itself will start to crack and crumble. As you can imagine, this can wind up causing a lot of damage to your chimney over time. Because of this, it is important to invest in professional help to ensure you get the best and longest-lasting results possible.
Fortunately, when the damages are not as extensive, we can address them quite swiftly and efficiently. For those small repair jobs, we use a product call CrownCoat. This is a sealant that fills cracks, repels water, and works hard to protect your chimney crown from the elements. Once it is applied, you will be all set and good to go in no time. You deserve peace of mind, and CrownCoat offers you just that.
Is The Damage Worse Than Expected?
If the damage you are experiencing is worse than you suspected, or if we discover that your crown was made from a weak mortar mixture, then a rebuild will be the way to go. Our CSIA certified crew is experienced and educated, so you can rest easier when we are the job. Come fall, your fireplace will be all set and ready for regular use.
