Chimney Crown and Shoulder Resurfacing
On most masonry chimneys, there is a “Crown” on the very top, and a pair of “Shoulders” where the chimney flares out. Like your home’s roof, these Horizontal surfaces are designed to keep harmful rain water from penetrating down into the brickwork of your chimney. Because these horizontal surfaces are totally exposed to all the elements (sun, rain, heat, cold), they generally begin to crack and develop leaks in short order. Water leaks in masonry chimneys cause more damage as a whole than any other element…. including chimney fires!!
If your crown and/or shoulders are cracked and weathered, your chimney is suffering more than you know! Every time it rains, water seeps down into the top 3-5 layers of brick which causes the mortar to prematurely become soft, thus allowing the bricks to become loose. If repairs to the crown and shoulder aren’t made, your chimney’s brickwork will eventually loosen and you’ll likely need to have the top several layers of your chimney rebuilt. Such repairs are often $1000-$2000!
When it comes to your chimney’s Crown and Shoulders, an ounce of prevention is BETTER than a pound of cure!! Avoid EXPENSIVE REPAIRS by having your crown and shoulders resurfaced with CrownSeal.
CrownSeal is a fireproof, waterproof, and permanently flexible membrane engineered for chimneys. With a 10 year warranty, CrownSeal will keep the water OUT of your chimney and keep more of your money IN your pocket!

Thanks for the awesome Service! We had one of your larger competitors come out to fix a water leak in our chimney, only to have it start leaking again a short time later! We called them back out to fix the problem (obviously not fixed right the first time), and they wanted to charge us for another service call! Then we called A to Z, and our problem was quickly and easily diagnosed! Apparently, the other company had tried the band-aid approach with caulk and roofing tar! Your technician knew what he was doing and the problem was fixed PERMANENTLY in short order! You guys are A-1 top notch! If you ever need a reference, let me know!
