Is A Cracked Crown To Blame For Your Chimney Leak? We Can Help!

Have you ever really taken a look at the horizontal concrete covering at the top of your masonry chimney? This important component, known as the chimney crown, is one of the key players in preventing chimney leaks. Storm after storm, the crown takes a beating so your chimney doesn’t have to. But the driving rain and severe weather common here in DFW can cause damage to even the strongest, most reliable crown. Cracks may start out small and crown deterioration may start out minor, but once water makes its way in, cracks will grow and the crown will rapidly deteriorate further — but we can help.

Effective & Long-Lasting Crown Repair & Leak Protection

Our knowledgeable, Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) chimney sweeps have decades of experience repairing chimney crowns and resolving chimney leaks. When repairing crowns, we use proven repair techniques and proven products like CrownCoat, so you can expect long-lasting protection when you trust your crown repairs to Black Velvet Chimney.

First, we’ll fill cracks and holes (even large ones) with a quality cement. Once repairs are made, we’ll apply CrownCoat, which is a product that can be brushed onto the crown to provide a flexible, long-lasting waterproof membrane. Because of its flexible nature, CrownCoat stretches and expands with the crown, which helps prevents future cracks and leaks so you can enjoy years of water protection.
