Your chimney crown sits at the top of your chimney and it is typically made from mortar or concrete. A correctly built crown will have sloped sides and will overhang past the chimney a bit. Due to it’s location and important role of protecting your chimney, your crown ends up facing a lot of wear and tear over the years. This means that cracks, holes, and other forms of deterioration are not uncommon.

What Is The Crown’s Purpose?

The reason why chimney crowns are so necessary is due to their ability to ward water away from your brickwork. Water can cause some serious damage and decay to a chimney, so doing all you can to keep it away will be very beneficial for you down the line – and preventative action now will save you a lot of money, time, and stress in the future!

The sloped construction and overhanging edges of the crown direct water away from the sides of your chimney. The less your masonry is exposed to moisture, the better! The crown also helps to cover the top of your chimney, meaning water, debris, nesting materials, and similar items has less of a chance of entering and causing damage.

My Crown Is Cracked! Now What?

If you notice cracks in your crown, it’s important to get them addressed as soon as possible.

Scheduling Early Chimney Sweepings

Are you someone who likes to stay ahead of the game? If so, we recommend scheduling your chimney sweeping with us now, rather than wait until fall. Most homeowners put this service off, figuring they won’t use their chimney throughout the summer anyway. While this is true for most, there are actually a lot of benefits to getting this service done early.

Whenever you need to make an appointment, it can be frustrating working around everyone else’s appointment times. We would love to work around every customer’s schedule, finding times that are most convenient for everyone, but unfortunately it’s just not possible. By calling us now, you give yourself a lot more scheduling freedom!

You see, our books fill up fast once the temperatures outside drop. As more and more homeowners call, we have trouble squeezing everyone in! Our staff will be working hard and visiting homes all throughout the area, and we won’t always be able to come at a time that is most convenient for you. That means you’re forced to rearrange your schedule to get this maintenance done before things get really cold.

There’s no doubt about it. Scheduling now is the way to go! You can put your mind at ease knowing your maintenance is done for the year and, while your neighbors are scrambling to schedule their sweeping, you’ll be cozying up to your warm fire with loved ones. Give us a call and we’ll find the best time for you!

Get Repairs Done Early

Another important issue to address is the importance of getting repairs done early. Like we said, we are very busy throughout fall and winter. We may be able to get your sweeping and inspection done, but if we notice repairs, we’ll likely have to come back in at another time. That means even more waiting and rearranging, so that your chimney is in top condition before use!

On top of that, some repairs jobs simply produce better results when the temperature outside is warm. Certain materials may need that nice weather to properly cure, and we will have the time and freedom to get the job done right. And our sweeps will appreciate the safer (and less icy) conditions, when working on your roof!
