A chimney crown is a masonry roof that covers the top of your chimney. It prevents water from seeping into the masonry below. Water damaged or cracked chimney crowns can lead to costly chimney repairs. Chimneys are often capped improperly with mortar crowns instead of the recommended cast-in-place concrete crowns. If the mortar crown is loose, crumbling, or severely deteriorated, it should be replaced with a new cast-in-place concrete crown. If the crown is damaged but structurally sound, it can be effectively repaired with one of our three, easy to use, crown repair products, CrownSeal, CrownCoat, or CrownSaver.


If your dryer isn't drying your clothes like it used to, you may not need a new dryer! A dryer duct clogged with lint, reduces airflow so your dryer doesn't dry as efficiently as it used to. One of the major signs that it's time to have your dryer vent cleaned is the length of drying time. It should only take 30 to 45 minutes for the average size load of clothes to dry. If you notice that it is gradually taking longer to dry a load of clothes it is more than likely a venting problem.


Heat loss occurs when a chimney damper doesn't seal properly or is missing or broken. You can't see it, the heat in the winter and air conditioning in the summer, just goes up the chimney and out of the house. It's like having a window open all year. Top damper installs on top of your chimney flue. It locks shut keeping your fireplace warm, dry and secure and a low-cost solution to replacing rusted, worn-out throat dampers. It reduces load on heat and air-conditioners and dramatically reduces noise from the outside.

Why Install a Chimney Cap? The number one cause of damage to chimneys is rain and weather. Rain is absorbed into the bricks and mortar, which deteriorates the masonry. Rain can also set off a bad smell in the chimney, especially if the chimney is dirty or has animal dropping on the smoke shelf. Birds and animals are attracted to chimneys. Chimneys offer a nice, tall place to live with secure protection. However, animal and bird nests are highly flammable and will cause venting problems. Every year, throughout America, thousands of fires are started by burning embers that rise up the flue, exit through an uncapped chimney, and land on the roof or yard.
