Top Hat Chimney & Duct Cleaning

Summer Months


I simply can’t believe I am getting my three teenage boys ready for school next week! This beautiful summer has, again, flown by and we are looking down the barrel of the of school, Top Hat’s busy season and eventually, Winter!! Brrrrr.


So, in the midst of making sure they all have pencils on that first day of school and it is not your kids that look “derpy”, do yourself another favor.


Go Look At Your Chimney! Yes, Go! Actually leave the screen here and take a walk outside of your home and look at your chimney.


We only have a few months where we can protect it against the coming ravages of winter. When your chimney has a bad crown (that is the top mortar part of your chimney that faces the sky) and bricks that have missing or cracked mortar in-between, your chimney will take on water. This water will freeze during the winter months. Now, what happens to water that freezes? (remember that beer you threw into the freezer this summer and then forgot about it?) Yep, freezing water in a chimney expands and breaks your chimney even further apart.


So today, go look at your chimney and see if you can see any damage to the top. We only have a few months to get out and repair the mortar (tuckpointing) and pour you a new crown. We can save you hundreds of dollars today if we take care of a small problem rather than wait till it looks like this:


This is old cracked crown needing replaced



or even like this!!!
