Chimneys are often the most weather exposed part of any home. They sit higher than any other part of the house getting every bit of every part of weather from excessive rain, snow, and ice, to excessive sun and wind. These all play a major role in the rapid deterioration of any chimney. The chimney crown acts as a roof to your chimney structure, protecting the flue and top of the chimney from weather-related deterioration or damage. If your chimney crown contains cracks or openings, water can seep into the internal chimney system causing a great deal of damage. If your chimney flashing is loose or missing, water can seep into the roof, chimney structure, or attic, causing wood rot, mold, and drywall damage.
