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.

"Shane and Kevin arrived about 10:30 a.m. on August 27 to replace two chimney caps at our home- -one concrete and the other galvanized steel. They were courteous and professional. Needless to say, the most difficult part of the work was setting up the scaffolding, protecting the gutter and laying the ladders on the roof to protect the roof. Where they had to drill holes in the roo..."

"We had a very professional technician come out to inspect our chimney and give it a clean. He did a very thorough job, taking several pictures as he went through the inspection and cleaning process. When he was finished, he sat down with us and went through the pictures and described what he saw and if any follow up work would be needed."
