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,

I just wanted to thank you for your honesty and for a thorough inspection of my chimney. One of the biggest concerns I have when hiring service professionals is being taken advantage when not having first hand knowledge of the various procedures. Last year when I had my chimney swept by one of your competitors, they claimed that I had a chimney fire, and that my flue was now cracked and needed extensive repairs.

This year, I hired A to Z to come out and sweep and inspect the flue because I heard they inspect the chimneys with a Chim Scan camera at no additional charge. The technician who came to my home, assured me I would be able to see any cracks or hazardous conditions along with him as he video scanned my flue. To my utter delight, NO EVIDENCE OF A CHIMNEY FIRE OR DAMAGE IN MY FLUE WAS DETECTED!!! Chris was extremely detailed in his inspection and really took his time educating me so I could feel comfortable. It was obvious that he knew what he was talking about and truly interested in doing the right thing…a far cry from last year’s experience with the other company. If anyone asks for an HONEST, COMPETENT, AND PROFESSIONAL chimney sweep company, I'll be sure to recommend A to Z!

~ Ms. Randi Scott, Lincoln, CA
