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!

I just wanted to thank you for coming to our rescue the other day. I just purchased a new home and a new washer and dryer to go with it. Understandibly, I was a very confused when my dryer suddenly began taking two or three cycles in order to dry my clothes! To my surprise, the appliance repairman who came out told me that my dryer was just fine, but that my dryer vent needed to be cleaned out! I had never heard of such a thing! Mercifully, he referred me to you guys and everything went better from there.

Your technician discovered that a bird had decided to make its nest in my vent! A lot of effort and tons of nesting material later, my vent was finally unclogged!

Thanks again for your valiant efforts! The guy that came to my house was fantastic and took everything in stride, and didn’t charge me any extra despite the fact that my vent took longer than normal to clean! I’ll be sure to tell everyone where they can get great service having the dryer vent cleaned!
