Did you know that water leaking into masonry chimneys causes more damage than any other element… including chimney fires?!

If your chimney’s crown and/or shoulders are damaged too badly to be sealed with CrownSeal, than a complete Tear-Off and Re-Build of the affected areas will be necessary. Unlike most masons and other chimney companies, A to Z does not re-pour a new crown using cheap, inferior mortar (which will quickly deteriorate again).

Instead, we use CrownSaver, a blend of polymer-modified hydraulic cements, powder-based water repellent, and fiber- reinforced Portland cement which is specifically engineered for the harsh environments chimney crowns are subjected to.

Because this engineered cement also has waterproofing agents, you’ll notice that after it is cured, water will bead up and shed like off a duck’s back rather than being absorbed into the masonry. Crown rebuilding at it’s finest, CrownSaver crown and shoulder cement is the pinnacle of doing the job right the first time!

Your employee was on time and very careful about cleanliness! I appreciated the fact that he took the time to not only put tarps down in front of my fireplace, but also everywhere he walked as he came in and out of my home… I have had my chimney cleaned by several companies over the years, and I don’t think I remember anybody being as careful to keep it clean as A to Z!

Also, another difference I noticed was the fact that your guy was here about ½ hour longer than any other chimney guys I’ve had in the past. Not only did it seem he was more meticulous and concerned about doing a thorough job, but he also put a Chim Scan Camera up into my chimney after cleaning to make sure there were no dangerous cracks or gaps.

You guys weren’t the cheapest in town, but I feel I DEFINTELY got a better value with your company than any others I’ve used in the past. You took more time, did a better job, and thoroughly answered all of my questions in terms that I could understand.

Great job from start to finish! Now that I’ve found you, I’ll use A to Z exclusively from now on!
