MASONRY FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The biggest problem you’ll find is the chimney crown: the top portion of cement on your chimney. The crown is usually sloped to shed water, and keeps the top of your chimney together.
The chimney crown prevents moisture from getting into the chimney cavity itself. Ultimately, this protects both your chimney and home from water damage.
A cracked crown allows water into your chimney, breaking down the mortar and causing heavy damage to the chimney itself. If that water freezes as a result of the weather, the thawing could crack the chimney! Chimney damage is easy to prevent, but very expensive to repair.
Adding cement alone doesn’t fix the problem. In fact, even though it appears to be “repaired,” the crack will reappear very quickly.
One Call uses Crown Seal for chimney crown repair. This is a product developed specifically for chimneys. Because Crown Seal is flexible, it will not crack once applied.
No ? we always use a clear waterproofing technique, which does not affect the look of your chimney.
While every chimney is different, the average repair can be completed in less than a day.
