Damage occurs to chimneys for several reasons but in our climate it is mostly do to moisture. Anytime a chimney has an opening facing the sky, there is an opportunity for moisture to penetrate the chimney.

Some examples in a masonry chimney are: mortar tops that are cracked and separated or completely crumbled; and fake or “dummy” flue tiles that are used for decoration. Both of which allow water to get into the porous tops of the brick. To protect against moisture we offer a concrete top instead of a mortar top that overlaps the edges of the chimney, thus protecting it from damage.
