Cracks in the Chimney Crown?

Chimney Cap

Like any part of the home, your chimney is just as important. Focusing on the chimney, specifically the section on the roof, there is a section that looks like cement or metal. This area is a chimney crown. A crown is a solid cover that sits on the highest points of your chimney. This particular section is strong and will perform well over a long period of time.

There are endless possibilities of why cracks have formed in the crown. Chimneys are continuously in the elements and can become damaged from snow, rain, sunlight, and freeze-thaw stages.

Indications of a Damages Chimney Crown

Cracking

Visible cracks in the concrete forming the crown can be filled or sealed, if they are still relatively small. Larger cracks might need more extensive repair.

Falling flue tiles

notice small lumps of tiles gathering at the base of your fireplace. If this issue is not resolved then it can prompt a house fire.

Rust

Rust on the damper or in the firebox implies water is getting in there some way or another, potentially through a harmed smokestack crown. Rust must be completely removed, and the difficulty that caused it must be immediately fixed.

Moisture Damage

wallpaper or walls within your home close to the fireplace are giving indications of dampness harm it could identify with water getting in through a defective crown.

Mortar joint harm

 Water that gets into a smokestack can harm mortar joints and cause them to begin disintegrating. On the off chance that you see unordinary particles at the base of the stack or in the firebox It is imperative to keep up the structural integrity of your chimney as it can turn into a fire danger whenever ignored. Depending upon the degree of the harm to your chimney crown, the kind of repairs needed will fluctuate. In the event that the crown is in more noteworthy decay it might be an ideal opportunity to totally supplant and rebuild the crown.

These and other problems can be prevented by scheduling an annual inspection and cleaning with a professional chimney sweep. However, you do not want to hire just anyone to take care of the task. Mixing any old mortar and slapping it on top is going to leave you with additional issues in no time. Instead, you need a specially formulated mixture made of weather resistant materials to do the job. A cement chimney crown is likely your best option.
