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!

Dear A to Z,
I just wanted to respond to your follow up email and let you know how impressed I was with the young man who cleaned my dryer vent! He was neat, in uniform, and I could tell he knew his job well. He even took, the time to educate me as to how and why dryer vents get dirty / clogged, and why it’s a major safety hazard….I knew a dirty vent could be dangerous, but didn’t know it could be THAT dangerous!
Definitely an educational experience that I will tell my friends about! Oh, and by the way, the volume of lint he cleaned out of my dryer vent made the hair on the back of my neck stand up! No wonder my dryer was taking 2 to 3 cycles to dry the clothes! I’m glad I hired A to Z, and look forward to seeing you again in 2 years to have it cleaned again. I’m now a believer, and a customer for life!
