Chimney Crown and Shoulder Tear Off/Re-build
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!

Dear A to Z Chimney
I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the great service you have done for me. I am an avid wood burner and love to burn my fires just about every evening. There’s nothing like the simple pleasure of curling up next to a warm and cozy fire during those cold winter nights.
Unfortunately, I had a chimney fire which did extensive damage to my chimney and it had to be re-lined with a new Stainless Steel Liner.
Last year, I hired a different company to come out and sweep my chimney. The sweep from that company tried to use high pressure sales tactics to get me to do the repairs. His poor attitude and high pressure turned me off so badly that I decided not to have them do the work.
This year, I hired your company and Chris Donovan was such a gentleman! He gave me the same bad news, but this time I could see it with my own eyes on the screen as he video scanned my flue. He was also much more knowledgeable and informative and really took the time to help me understand. He did not talk condescendingly, and there was no pressure whatsoever.
Consequently, I did hire your company to come back and complete the needed repairs, and was absolutely delighted!! Not only did Chris come back, but Aaron, the owner came, as well. I was delighted to know that the owner was personally seeing to the work. In the process of repairing my chimney, some other minor problems were detected, and they fixed them at no additional charge!
In addition, when everything was done, they did a spectacular job cleaning up every bit of their mess, and I couldn’t even tell they had been here.
Thanks again for the great service you provide! I will use you again and again, and refer you to my friends.
