Crowns are at the top of your chimney, and should be on your priority list. The crown is your chimney’s first line of defense against mother nature. A working chimney crown helps keep the elements off your chimney and in return, assists in maintaining the structural integrity of your chimney.

Would you want to buy a home with a fireplace and then burn down your home the first time you burned a fire because you had never gotten the chimney inspected?
