A poured-in place crown is formed and poured on top of the chimney and extends out pass the stone or brick, about 4 to 5 inches thick. A feathered crown wash is a cement sloped structure that extends away from the flue and feathered to the edge of the stone or brick approximately 2 to 3 inches thick.
The goal of both is the same – to shed water off of the top of the chimney.
Most crowns are constructed out of mortar at the time that the chimney was completed by the mason. Crown washes can become cracked and weathered over time. This allows the water to get in and damage the bricks of your chimney. Our technicians can repair your crown using proper materials such as concrete.
