A chimney crown is a masonry roof that is made to cover the top of your chimney. It is important because it helps prevent water from seeping into your chimney. Having a secure Chimney Crown keeps your mortar joints and the flue safe. Water seeping through would be a major issue, therefore causing damage to the brickwork and masonry that can lead to a collapse. You don’t want to deal with some costly chimney repairs just because of a cracked and weak chimney crown. One way to fix a crown is to tear it down and pour a new one, which can be expensive. However, that is where CrownCoat comes into play and is known as the best solution.
CrownCoat is a flexible waterproof sealant that is applied over the entire chimney crown. When it is applied professionally it will stop further water intrusion through the crown. You won’t have to worry about severe weather for CrownCoat can withstand it because of its formula. The formula is made up of unique and quick drying water-based technology that is long lasting, making it the best solution. It only requires a thin application over the Chimney Crown which prevents cracking so you won’t have to worry about chimney leaks. Once the crown is sealed with CrownCoat, it helps fill in those existing cracks. CrownCoat ensures that the coat is durable that they include a 15 year warranty!
