Crowns & Chase Covers

The mortar crown, often called a crown cap, is a concrete-like surface at the top of a masonry chimney. Its job is to shed water away from the flue and also keep water from entering the chimney chase. Cracks or missing pieces in the mortar crown can lead to extensive water damage in your chimney. Mortar crowns may be replaced with traditional masonry products or repaired with a specialized sealant called a crown seal.

Prefab chimneys have metal chase covers on top of the chase. The chase cover’s job is to keep rain and animals out of the chimney. The builder of the home often saves a little money making this chase cover out of galvanized sheet metal instead of stainless steel. A properly constructed chase cover has arched supports underneath to help shed water off the chase cover and away from the chimney’s interior.

What Our Customers Say

"Chris and Kevin were fabulous, as expected, with my unusual fireplace and with getting into the roof for my dryer vent, which is not so easy. I have recommended Full Service Chimney to others, and will continue to do so!"

D.

"Apologies as this post is long overdue, but I wanted to say thank you to Sam and Full Service Chimney for your discovery and recommendation on 11/12. What began as a chimney inspection, cleaning, and fix recommendation for our gas powered fireplace turned into a life-saving appointment for me and my family. Unbeknownst to us, carbon monoxide had been pouring into our home for some t..."

"Good people, honest and fair. We are happy with the work they’ve done so far on our grandma’s home in Overland Park."

Tressa

"Kevin did a great job explaining the problems with my chimneys in my 1983 new home purchase. I am excited for my new gas fireplace they will install. I knew fireplaces that old probably would not facilitate burning wood."

"All around excellent service I have nothing bad to say about this company."
