One of the most overlooked aspects of a roof system is the chimney. The chimney is exposed to the same harsh elements that the roof is which can cause mortar joints to deteriorate, brick to crack and masonry counter flashing “pops,” etc.
All materials that makeup a home or building are protected by the roof and eave, however, the chimney is unprotected exposing it to all the elements including rain, wind, snow, wind and winter free and thaw cycles. Because of a chimney’s exposure to the elements, the masonry materials used in the construction of the chimney can deteriorate quickly because they absorb moisture. Due to the elements and exposure, chimneys experience stress and require fireplace chimney repair and chimney rebuilds.
An important component of the chimney is the crown. No one takes a crown as seriously as we do! Like a house needs a roof to keep water from entering, a chimney needs a crown. All too often, brick masons simply mound mortar mix over the top of the chimney to finish off the top of a chimney. Overtime mortar crowns crack because they are porous. Water gets into these cracks and the “freeze and thaw” cycles of Winter weather deteriorate the crown further. Unless you correct the problem you can expect further and rapid deterioration of the entire chimney. When PRP replaces a crown or rebuilds your chimney we will build a chimney crown that is not only rebar reinforced concrete but we also use an actual form and pour the concrete so that the crown protrudes past the masonry to form a drip edge (see photos). PRP recommends having your chimney inspected by our qualified chimney masonry technician. If you suspect your chimney needs work, call us to schedule a time to have our chimney specialists come out and provide an estimate. The Pinnacle Roofing team has an in-house skilled chimney mason experienced in all the most common masonry materials and is capable of repairing your chimney, chimney rebuilds or bringing it up to code.

Or, your chimney can have leaks and experience water intrusion, which can cause extensive damage to the interior and exterior of the home and or your masonry chimney. If water gets inside a chimney, it can cause rust in the steel and cast iron which can destroy the metals. If the metals are destroyed and there is water penetration, it can result in the need for chimney repair or a chimney rebuild.
Because of its exposure to the elements, a masonry chimney may need repairs from time to time. Chimney masonry repairs can be very troublesome and challenging for homeowners. Pinnacle Roofing Professionals is qualified to diagnose your chimney’s repair needs, and execute any repairs needed.
