Chimney Crown Installation Service Chicago
Chimney Sweep Near Me’s expert chimney technicians install chimney crowns at properties throughout the Chicagoland area. Our team measures and installs custom-fit crowns to your chimney that can efficiently wick water away from your chimney flue, and into your roof.
What are chimney crowns?
The chimney crown is a piece of masonry on the upper part of your chimney that sometimes extends out, and sometimes is flush. It slopes outwardly, directing water away from the chimney and protecting the chimney’s vertical brick and mortar.
It’s absolutely necessary to install a crown on your chimney in order to prevent:
- Rusty chimney dampers, glass doors, or fireplace accessories
- Degraded metal or masonry fireboxes
- Rotting wood next to the chimney
- Mortar crumbling
- Cracking bricks
- Wall water damage
- Degraded HVAC systems
- Stained or degraded chimney exteriors
- Cracking flue lining
- Collapsing hearth foundations
- Collapsed, tilted, or settled chimneys
