Does the Chimney Crown at Your Wyoming, OH, Home Need Attention?

Your home’s chimney crown is the slab of concrete, metal, or stone that sits atop your chimney, protecting it from water exposure. It’s an important element of your chimney’s overall structure, as it helps the brick and mortar avoid water damage, preserving your chimney’s longevity. But since your chimney crown sits high on top of your roof, it’s not always easy to tell when it needs repair or replacement. If you’re a Wyoming, Ohio, area homeowner, the experts at Parker Roofing can help. Consider the following signs and symptoms that your chimney crown might need attention, and give us a call if any of this sounds familiar:

  • Chimney tiles in your firebox – If tiles are falling from the flue and landing in your fireplace, a damaged chimney crown could be the root of the problem.
  • Rust in your fireplace – Rust happens as a result of water exposure. So, if you’re seeing it in your fireplace, your chimney crown may no longer be preventing rainwater from entering your chimney.
  • Crumbling mortar joints – Mortar joints can become damaged and crumble due to moisture exposure, which can be an issue if your chimney crown has even small cracks in it.
  • Loose or falling bricks in your chimney – If your chimney bricks themselves have loosened and are falling off your chimney, it’s essential to have your chimney crown looked at immediately. Your chimney may need to be replaced entirely.

“Can't say enough good things. They were able to get someone out for an estimate right away and got the estimate back for my approval almost immediately. I had multiple points of damage from racoons and they were able to complete the repairs in the same day. Everyone was as friendly as can be and showed me pictures from various points during repair to keep me in the loop.”

“They kept their word and came very quickly when needed during days of rain.”

“What made Mike and Tonia stand out is their personal touch. Mike got on a ladder and held roofing samples up so that we could see how they would look on our house. Tonia offered professional design advice at the same time without forcing her opinion on us. What came out of it was a beautiful roof that my wife and I both love, that truly exceeded our expectations. The crew was hard-working, efficient and cleaned up completely after themselves. This was a year ago, and every day it brings a smile when I come home and see what looks like a new home. We recommend Parker Roofing without reservation. ”

“Great company to work with and stood behind their work. Not only did they do a great job with the new roof installation, but when there was a minor problem, the owner came out and addressed it immediately. Definitely a company I would recommend.”

“Great job and great price for chimney repairs. Professional, knowledgeable and courteous. Also did leaf guards on a previous house which work great and ended years of hard dangerous work for me. Thanks. Highly recommend.”

“Parker Roofing removed 3 layers of shingles from my 89 year old house and installed a new roof. In addition, they removed a chimney, installed a new skylight, installed attic fans, soffit vents and gutter guards. The office staff (including Jeff the sales rep) were very professional and the crews did high quality work. The foreman George was very responsive and easy to work with. I plan to use them for any future work.”
