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!
