Inspect, photograph, and repair your chimney crown
Mr Roof’s team of experienced masons can inspect, photograph, and repair your chimney crown, saving you hundreds, or possibly thousands of dollars in preventable chimney repairs. The mantra “out of sight, out of mind” explains why your chimney is often the most overlooked part of your home. But homeowners should definitely keep a closer eye on their chimneys because the crown, the top flat part of the chimney covered in cement, is prone to cracking.
The crown defends against water entering the chimney cavity. If water does seep through cracks, it can wreak havoc on your chimney and the interior of your home, costing you hundreds or even thousands of dollars in repairs. As a professional mason company, Mr. Roof understands that homeowners cannot afford this kind of financial stress in today’s economy, which is why we will repair your chimney crown for a fraction of what untreated damages would cost.

Crash Course: Masonry 101
For you to better understand why keeping up with your chimney repairs is so important, Mr. Roof is going to give you a crash course in masonry. First, you must understand what exactly is meant by the term “masonry.” Masonry materials include brick, stucco, stone and block, all of which happen to be very porous. The next item on the syllabus is to understand why chimney crowns crack. As mentioned above, the crown is made of cement, and cement is not very flexible. Therefore, cracks form rather easily with the expansion and contraction of the mason, and small cracks turn into large cracks over time.
Mr. Roof’s Defense
So how does Mr. Roof repair and protect your masonry? Well, as we said, masonry materials are very porous. To combat this porous quality, Mr. Roof can apply a waterproof barrier that will last for 10 years. In order to fix cracked crowns, Mr. Roof uses Crown Seal, a product developed specifically for crown repair. Rest assured, Crown Seal remains flexible indefinitely and will not crack.
