What is a Chimney Crown?
A chimney crown is the very top of your chimney. It acts as a roof to keep out all the weather. The mortar at the top of the chimney is usually much weaker than the rest of the masonry so it’s very important to make sure the chimney crown is not damaged.
Why is a Chimney Crown Important?
Chimney crowns are extremely important to the well-being of your chimney. It keeps out all the rain and snow and keeps the moisture from damaging the inside of your chimney walls. After a while, moisture can make mortar weak and can eventually make your entire chimney crumble. If you notice that the chimney crown doesn’t go passed the chimney masonry work, then it’s time to replace it. You don’t want any holes or gaps near the crown because water can get in anywhere.
