Chimney Crown Installation
A chimney without a chimney crown is like a house without a roof — one doesn’t make much sense without the other. It’s extremely important to keep your chimney crown in good shape because it is what covers the top of your chimney to keep water out. Chimney crowns also have the important job of keeping critters like birds, opossums, rats and insects out of your chimney, and preventing debris from entering and creating a blockage that might well prove to be a fire hazard.
It’s not always apparent when your chimney crown is damaged, especially because water can enter from small holes and cracks. Because chimney problems can manifest themselves as roofing problems, homeowners often mistakenly call a roofer to fix their chimney. But roofers don’t know chimneys the way chimney professionals do. They know roofs — we know chimneys. If you want your crown work done right, call a certified chimney technician, today.
Why We Use Crown Coat
The chimney technicians at Aelite Chimney use ChimneySaver’s Crown Coat Brushable Sealant to help us create a waterproof chimney crown for our customers. We love this environmentally-friendly product because it comes with a 15-year warranty and its quick-drying water-base technology allows it to cure completely within two to four hours.

At Aelite Chimney we have 15 years of experience building superior mortar chimney crowns that will wick water off your chimney and down onto your roof.
