We’re Proud To Bring Prompt & Professional Crown Repair To The Greater Columbia Area
As the crowning piece at the top of your chimney system, the crown has a big job: to protect it against moisture and keep animals and debris out of the chimney. Unfortunately, after years of moisture damage and weather changes, chimney crowns can crack and deteriorate, leading to chimney leaks. Because of the severe damage that can occur as a result of even a small leak, it’s imperative that your damaged chimney crown be repaired as quickly as possible, and with Chimspector Venting Specialists on the job, you can count on it.
- Crack Repair — We specialize in cracked crown repair and can seal cracks and prevent them from growing larger. You see, even small, hairline cracks can allow water to enter the chimney, and as more and more water enters through these cracks, the cracks will grow larger, allowing even more water to enter.
- Crown Rebuilds — In order to effectively protect your chimney against water, the crown’s drip edge should extend at least a couple of inches past the chimney stack; the top of the crown should slope slightly; and the crown itself should be at least three inches thick at its thinnest point. We also specialize in crown rebuilds, so if your crown is lacking proper slope, thickness, or drip edge, we can give you a crown that will do a better job of protecting your chimney.
- Waterproofing — Of course, you want your chimney crown to be protected against future problems as well, which is why we also offer CrownCoat, a water repellent that’s designed specifically for chimney crowns. Once applied, this flexible water barrier will prevent cracks, holes, deterioration, and water penetration, so you can enjoy a leak-free and beautiful chimney for years to come.
