Preventing Chimney Crown Repairs

While on your roof measuring for a chimney cap, be sure to check your chimney crown for any cracks or crazing. While small cracks may not seem like an issue, those small cracks can quickly become big cracks and eventually result in expensive repairs.

Chimney crown cracks can expand over time and result in expensive repairs.When water gets into those cracks and freezes it expands, enlarging the crack. Over time, the freeze-thaw process will cause that little hairline crack to become large enough to threaten the structure of your chimney crown. If left untreated, your chimney crown will begin to crumble and need to be replaced- an expensive repair.
