The chimney crown is an important part of the chimney system. It is the area around the top of the chimney that acts as an umbrella for the entire chimney structure. The chimney crown is not to be confused with the chimney cap, which is an attachment that is added to the top of the flue pipe to keep debris out of the chimney flue. The chimney crown tops off the masonry walls of the chimney with a small concrete roof that prevents water from seeping into the bricks and mortar that make up your chimney. This simple structure can actually save homeowners thousands of dollars in costly water damage repairs.
Wondering whether you should install a chimney cap? Consider this- something as simple (and relatively inexpensive) as a chimney cap can actually save you thousands of dollars on unnecessary chimney repairs. A chimney cap is a metal topper that covers the opening of your flue, keeping debris, water, and animals out of your chimney. Chimney caps also come with spark guards that keep burning embers from escaping out of your chimney than landing on nearby flammable objects (like your roof).
The brick and masonry material of your chimney is constantly exposed to the elements. After years of enduring harsh weather conditions and regular usage, your chimney’s mortar will begin to deteriorate. This will leave your chimney susceptible to excessive moisture which is why it’s imperative to repair or replace the mortar before serious and expensive damage happens.
