Is Your Chimney Crown Beyond Repair? Our Experts Can Rebuild It

Crowns of the past weren’t built with the same care and knowledge that experts today approach them with. In fact, a few decades ago, it was the norm to construct crowns from a basic mortar mix which, not surprisingly, could only withstand so much wind, rain, snow, and bad weather before it started breaking down and deteriorating.

A crown that’s properly built, on the other hand, can last a lifetime. Which is why scheduling a rebuild with our team now is a well worthwhile investment.

Trust Our Experts to Get the Job Done Right

Crowns need to meet specific requirements to last for the long haul. Because of this, hiring someone who is certified, experienced, and has the training to back up the services they offer is essential. Fortunately for those in Columbus, Licking County, and more, we check all the boxes.

What are the requirements of a well-built crown?

  • It should be 2 inches thick at the thinnest point.
  • It should extend past the edge of the chimney at least two inches to aid with water run-off.
  • It should be slanted downward to ensure water can’t pool on top of it.
  • It should be built with a Portland cement-based mix.
  • The flue liner tiles should extend above it at least two inches.
  • It should be professionally waterproofed.
