Crown and Chimney Repair

On this page you will find many different Cleaners and Sealers to repair your Chimney and Chimney Crown.

Protect Your Investment-

There are approximately 40 million masonry chimneys in North America and the most common problem with these structures is water penetration.  Water causes over 1 billion dollars in damage annually in the form of staining, loss of insulation value, freeze-thaw damage, deterioration, and ultimately structural failure.

All new and existing masonry chimneys are susceptible to water damage and even if repaired, chimneys will continue to deteriorate if they are not protected. We've listed water repellents specifically developed to protect chimneys from the severe weather conditions to which they are exposed.

We recommend a WATER REPELLENT-not a water sealer.  The difference could save you hundreds, or even thousands of dollars in repairs because sealers can actually damage masonry.  Unlike waterproofing sealers that remain on the surface and trap water vapors, the water repellent should penetrate deep enough to protect masonry from destructive water penetration.

Water Damage Can Be Prevented

Chimneys are highly exposed to the elements and, if  left unprotected, are susceptible to structural deterioration. It is important to address this problem before serious damage occurs.

UGL MASONRY CRACK FILLER; ITEM #146 @ $8.50

Img315.jpgWhen you see a crown (mortar cap) of a chimney that's cracked but not separated from the chimney yet, use this material to fill the cracks and make it watertight again before the whole crown has to be replaced.  This product can be applied even in moist conditions.  The purpose of a crown or mortar cap is to prevent water from seeping into the chimney; when its cracked it isn't doing its job and can lead to the deterioration of the whole structure.

 

RUTLAND MASONRY PATCH; ITEM #723-GRAY @ $9.00

Img316.jpgAn exterior mastic patching cement.  Natural concrete color.  Repairs broken mortar in chimneys, steps, sidewalks, etc.

CrownSeal can be used as a bonding mortar to replace badly spalled brick units or for parging over brick faces that may have spalled, (if remaining brick is solid).  Product can be used for crack repair, surface grouting and tuck pointing. Coverage: At 1/8" thickness, 14-18 sq. ft. per gallon, depending on texture and porosity of surface to be coated.  Dries to touch within one hour.  Cures completely in 24-72 hours depending on thickness.  This product is freeze/thaw stable.  Comes in 2 or 5 gallon recyclable plastic containers.

Img850.jpgAHRENS CHAMBER TECH 2000 comes in a  5 gallon pail (30 lbs.) in dry form, just add water and apply.  How Do You Get It In There?  From sweeps who are doing it, you take out the damper and sometimes the top one or two rows of bricks to gain access to the smoke chamber.  It's work, but if it's got to be done, this is the material to do it with!!

 

CRACK MAGIC; ITEM #24635-1/2 GAL +BRUSHES @ $120.00

Img851.jpgA new product from the people at SaverSystems.  Use CrackMagic TM to fill small cracks in exterior masonry (up to 1/8").  It keeps the water out but lets the internal moisture escape.  Comes in a 1/2 gallon bucket with the two application brushes shown. You get about 100 sq. ft. from each bucket.  Great for solving leak problems that don't resolve with ChimneySaver.

 

 

CrownSaver Repair Coating; ITEM #24525-5 GAL @ $113.00

Img852.jpgWhen the crown is gone beyond the point of simple repairs, use CrownSaver to build a new one.  It has a 10-year warranty. Comes in 30lb. buckets with directions right on the side.  This is a dry product which you mix with sand (one scoop of CrownSaver to 3 scoops of sand-scoop provided) and water.  Can be used with or without FormFoil, an aluminum foil backed adhesive that is pressed in place over the existing crown, (FormFoil acts as a bond break and watertight flashing system between the old and new crown) or pull the old one off and build the new one from scratch with just the CrownSaver.  You can apply over the old crown, no forms are needed and it sets up in under two hours.  Because it's from SaverSystems (the same folks who produce Chimney Saver) it contains waterproofing, the perfect product for crowns.

chimneysaver.jpgWater-Based ChimneySaver can be applied in damp conditions, doesn't discolor or damage asphalt shingles, non-combustible and has no chemical odor.  Because some of our customers prefer the original solvent-based heavy duty ChimneySaver, we're stocking it also!

ChimneySaver; ITEM #24100 SOLVENT BASED 5 GAL @ $330.75

Img856.jpgComes with 10 yr. warranty.  See information Below. 

 Img857.jpgSuperior Technology!

ChimneySaver contains patented siloxanes small enough to penetrate most masonry pores up to 1/4" or more.  These special siloxanes form strong bonds with the silica in masonry and concrete.  Because of this bonding process, one application of ChimneySaver  provides up to ten times the water repellent protection of typical sealers.

Img858.jpg   Img860.jpg100% Breathable

Moisture from a variety of sources is always present in masonry and concrete.  Sealers and silicone coatings form a water resistant surface film, which traps water vapors.  If these vapors cannot escape, they will contribute to spalling, scaling, deterioration, and freeze-thaw damage.  ChimneySaver is 100% vapor permeable - a non film-forming water repellent that penetrates and lines masonry pores.

ChimneySaver offers the best protection because it releases water vapors and effectively reduces water absorption!

 

Brick And Mortar Cleaner; ITEM #24602 2.5 GAL CONTAINER @ $45.00

  brk mtr clnr chim pict.jpg    brick-mortar cleaner.jpgThe before and after photos at left show you the effectiveness of SaverSystems Brick and Mortar Cleaner in eliminating tough stains - all without using highly caustic chemicals.  Brick and Mortar Cleaner is a concentrated blend of special acids and cleaners that effectively remove rust stains, mildew, algae, smoke, and creosote stains.  It's designed for use on both brick and masonry surfaces.  (Do not use on limestone.  It will dissolve limestone.)

Application is easy - just use a low-pressure sprayer or any nonmetal brush or roller.  You'll need a stiff-fiber, non-metal scrub brush to do the scrubbing.  Goggles, chemical splash gloves and a respirator are required.

For smoke stains inside the house, Brick and Mortar Cleaner is not the recommended product, try Speedy White.For general cleaning, dilute with two parts water.  For stains, use full strength.  Covers 50-150 sq. ft. per gallon.
