A leaky chimney is a common complaint we hear at Lindemann Chimney Service. When we inspect a home plagued with chimney leaks, our first area of suspicion is the chimney crown. The chimney crown is often the main source of water penetration through the chimney. Typically constructed of cement, the crown is prone to experiencing cracking over time. This is due to a number of factors including expansion and contraction during freeze/thaw cycles, settlement and poor construction. In fact, many chimney crowns are built poorly from the start.
The best answer to a leaky chimney is the industry’s leading chimney sealant – CrownCoat.
Leaky chimneys are no laughing matter. If left unaddressed, small minor leaks into the home can lead to larger, more costly repairs including bigger crack formation and further tuckpointing needs. Continual water penetration can even lead to structural integrity issues. CrownCoat addresses these problems by filling existing cracks with a weathertight seal. Its unique formula prevents further water penetration and absorption. CrownCoat offers the long-lasting waterproof membrane damaged chimney crowns need.
Advantages of CrownCoat
There are many benefits to addressing your leaky chimney problems with a CrownCoat application including:
It is important to never attempt to seal a leaky crown using paint or a non-vapor permeable sealer. Doing so can trap moisture inside the chimney leading to accelerated deterioration within the flue.
If your home is experiencing leaky chimney issues due to a faulty crown, you may want to consider a CrownCoat application.
