This summer, your chimney has gone through severe summer storms, heavy winds, precipitation, animal tampering, and more. When you wake up from a storm with branches in your lawn, you can bet your chimney is likely affected by the storm too. You can pick up debris and branches from the yard, but it’s difficult to detect and repair chimney damage. It’s important to schedule an annual chimney inspection so that a professional can get a look at the chimney. At Brickliners, we offer inspections and repairs to bring your chimney back to its former glory!
Damaged Crowns Diagnosed Annually
One of the most common problems found during a chimney inspection is issues with the chimney crown. It may be because it is constructed improperly or damaged by time and sunlight. No matter what the problem is, it’s likely that the homeowner will not know it exists. Schedule a chimney inspection with a professional so that you know the condition of your chimney crown.
A damaged chimney crown can allow water into the chimney system, leading to rust and damage. This drops the efficiency of your chimney, ruins chimney parts, and raises fire risk in your home. You should get your chimney crown assessed if you have noticed water in the chimney system. Signs of a leak can include odors of mold or mildew, visible or evidence of dripping in the chimney and firebox, and stains on the chimney interior or exterior.
Repair Your Crown with Brickliners
Your chimney crown will need repairs if it has damages, if it’s too thin, flat in areas, cracked, chipped, or flaking. If your chimney professional found issues with your system, you should address the repairs as soon as possible to ensure your chimney runs longer and more efficiently. Depending on the extent of the damage, the repair may be quick and inexpensive and also save you lots of time and money.
Minor repairs may be just the thing your crown needs to get back in working order. A coat of an industrial product will fill cracks and gaps, restoring the crown and bringing the chimney back up to safety and code. If the chimney crown needs a more serious repair, or if it wasn’t constructed properly in the first place, we can fix that too. Our team can form and pour a new chimney crown that is up to code and industry standards. Our experts at Brickliners can construct a chimney crown with the appropriate thickness, slant, and overhand to shed water off and away from the chimney.
