Chimney 101: Crown

posted in: Chimney 101 | 0

The chimney crown is at the top of your chimney, and its purpose is to protect brick chimneys from damage that could be caused by weather and water damage. Chimney Crowns are usually added during chimney construction and constructed using cement. We have a great video our our crew finishing up a Chimney Crown and adding a Chimney Cap while the cement is still not quite set.Some chimneys utilize a metal cover that is made to fit over the top of the brickwork called a Chimney Chase.
