We’re ready to help you out, and with winter fast approaching now is the time to get our team on the job!
WHAT IS THE CHIMNEY CROWN?
For those not quite as familiar with chimney terms and anatomy, the chimney crown is what sits on the top of your chimney. It starts at your liner and extends past the edge of your chimney at a downward slope. This unique design allows water to flow out and away from the sides of your chimney, which helps keep the brickwork better protected in times of bad weather.
In order to function well, the crown needs to be made from strong materials that can withstand years of abuse. It also needs to hold the appropriate shape, size, and design in order to work effectively. This is why hiring trained experts, like our team here at SirVent Chimney & Venting Service, is always the way to go! We’re here to help you every step of the way.
ADDRESSING YOUR ISSUES
There are a couple of different ways to approach a faulty crown. If yours has small cracks or other issues, then there’s no need to do anything too extensive. There are simple repair techniques we can apply that will get the job done right, allowing you to enjoy your system with peace of mind and relaxation month after month.
In other cases, the crown may be beyond basic repair work, and in these situations the entire thing may need to be rebuilt. This is obviously a more extensive job, but you don’t need to worry about a thing when we’re getting it done. We’ve been rebuilding crowns and working on chimneys for years, so you can rest easy when you hire us.
BENEFITS OF A WELL-WORKING CROWN
Once your crown is patched up and in good shape, you’ll notice countless immediate benefits. You’ll be less prone to chimney leaks, your brickwork will stay in better shape, and you’ll notice less overall deterioration throughout your system. Crowns are very important and they do a big job for the health and functionality of your system.
