What is a Crown Cap?

The cap / crown like a “helmet” for your chimney. It’s a protector,  responsible for keeping the inside of your fireplace and chimney safe and dry. When damage occurs to the top of a chimney, water soon begins to damage other areas of the structure and to your home as well. 

While Repairs and Replacement of the mortar cap or crown are eventually necessary for most chimneys, Full Service Chimney makes repair and maintenance Fast and Easy.

Why are Repairs Needed?

Chimney cap repair is necessary to avoid chimney rebuilding. There are consequences to delaying chimney service:

When homeowners choose to hold off on chimney cap repair, we eventually return to find that rain, freeze/thaw damage, and chimney leaks only got worse over time. Leading to much more costly repairs.

Major damage can be prevented with a proper chimney crown cap.

Unfortunately, it is a common Full Service Chimney repair to offer complete chimney rebuilding from the roof up. All from what started a few years before as “small cracks in the chimney crown cap”. In addition to causing brick damage, chimney leaks from a damaged chimney crown will lead to rusted fireplace glass doors, ruined fireplace dampers, and loose bricks in the fireplace firebox.

Before and After Brick Chimney Crown, Cap, and Flashing

Common Repairs for Your Chimney Top

Leaks

Chimney leaks are often caused by a problem with the chimney crown. More often than not, your chimney crown was made from leftover mortar from the chimney rebuilding. These chimney mortar cap crowns frequently form hairline cracks the night they set up.

In short order, these small cracks begin to leak, fill with rain water, freeze and widen. Regrettably, in a few years a broken crown turns into loose brickwork at the chimney top.

On the other hand, if your chimney crown was made of reinforced concrete that extends beyond the brickwork from Full Service Chimney, it could be the last crown repair your chimney will ever need.

Add to the chimney crown replacement, chimney waterproofing and a new chimney cap, you’ll have a crown cap that likely will last over a hundred years.

 

Seal is Failing or Has Failed

A Chimney Crown Seal is the most common chimney cap repair that Full Service Chimney offers to customers who need chimney top service.

A quality  crown seal is the proper chimney repair for cement chimney caps that have only small cracks, but are otherwise sturdy. 

By taking care of small cracks in a leaky chimney crown early, we can avoid additional chimney leaks and a more extensive, more expensive chimney repair later!
