Chimney Saver Crown Coat | Chimney Services
Clean Chimney With Abrasive Action
Abrasive Action: First step to preparing the chimney crown surface is to scrub it down with a heavy duty wire brush, a wire brush can increase the surface area of the chimney crown by 300%, this fact gives the crown coat solution more area to attach itself to ensure property adhesion. The brushing process ensures the removal any debris and or microbial that may have attached themselves to the chimney crown. Sometimes a chimney crown / bricks will get moss buildup which then will leave a residue once removed, so it is very important to really get down to the surface area of the crown by scratching into the concrete.
Use High PSI Air Blower To Clean Chimney Surface
High PSI Air Blower: After the surface penetration is complete it is time to clear the area of dust debris caused from the brushing process. This high pressure air blower will clear a great percentage of the dust away to accommodate the next step in the process of sealing the chimney crown.
Power Wash Chimney Surface
Water Treatment : This final step in the prepping process is key for the fact that neither a brush nor by using high pressure air will completely remove all leftover dust molecules. This step is commonly missed by many masons. Our outlook on this is that every step matters for proper adhesion. When water pressure is applied it completely clears the surface area of the chimney crown, by opening up all the surface pours. A great analogy if this step is skipped, is like sticking a peace of tape on the dusty floor before using it.
Chimney Saver Water Based Water Repellent
Chimneys require special attention and maintenance to prevent damage from water penetration. Chimneys are considerably vulnerable to the 90 plus freeze thaw cycles our Minnesota seasons put our homes through. Chimney Saver, is a product developed specifically for chimneys. Chimney Savor has been used successfully for nearly 20 years, It reduces water penetration of masonry by 99.9%, according to ASTM tests conducted at the University of Wyoming. Chimney Saver Water Repellent is also 100% vapor permeable, this translates to the fact it will not trap water vapors that may pass through the bricks, when the chimney is in its working stages, causing condensation. Some products actually form a vapor barrier when applied to a masonry chimney, which leads to water damage.
Whether you would like to use Water-Base or Solvent-base
Solvent (Mineral Spirits) and water-based formulas are both available. The water-based formula is the favorable choice of most chimney Contractors however, if your working with a chimney that has already been sprayed previously with a water repellent, its strongly recommended to us the solvent-based formula. Moisture is always present in concrete/masonry structures, with that being said by trapping water vapors inside, water resistant surface film type sealants are highly frowned upon among chimney contractors. If vapors can’t escape, they will play a huge part in the spalling, scaling and deterioration process during the Minnesota Weather cycles. Chimney Saver is a non film-forming water repellent that penetrates and bonds into masonry pores.

“Highly recommend Guardian Chimney Solutions - I called them on a Monday afternoon concerning a smell coming from my fireplace and they were here by Tuesday. As a new home owner, were knowledgeable and wonderful to deal with. They took the time to explain everything. Definitely will be using them if there are any other issues!.”
“Had raccoons in my chimney earlier this week (cute pictures attached!) and realized it was time to do something to keep them (and the bats we've previously had in our chimney) out! I called around for different estimates and checked all kinds of reviews online. Not only were Guardian's reviews the best out there but the estimate I received matched the best out of a number of other local companies. I called on Tuesday and they were out on Wednesday getting the job done. I was very impressed with the service and would happily recommend them to anyone and everyone! Thanks, and keep up the great work, Guardian Chimney Solutions!"
“Very responsive, timely, efficient, and expertly done. Worked hard and quietly the entire time they were on site. Finished ahead of schedule. Respectful and pleasant. If we have another chimney issue, these guys will be my only call.”
“We had our long-neglected chimney repaired from the roof line up to the top of the chimney. Guardian ground out the mortar around the entire chimney and rebuilt the top number of rows of brick with new brick and put a new cap on the top to replace the badly cracked cement cap that was there. The tuck-pointing that they performed on the chimney and another area above a door all looked well done. They completed the job in one day, in spite of a short downpour that halted their work. They cleaned up all evidence of their work afterwards and left our yard looking like they never were there. Joe, the owner, was a pleasure to work with. He did most of the brickwork himself and repaired a part of the chimney that was unexpectedly in bad condition without charge. He was clear in his communication with us in a written proposal and priced the job more reasonably than others. When rain was predicted on the original date of work he called and let us know he had to reschedule and rescheduled for the next day, showing up on time. He was trustworthy and very easy to work with. We would certainly recommend him to others for their chimney and brick work.”
“Showed up on time for both estimating and doing the work. Estimate was very clear and thorough. (And less expensive than the "other guy".) Work was done in a timely manner, everyone was polite, and they cleaned up afterwards. Every company should be this good. Kudos!.”
“Couldn’t recommend Joe and Guardian Chimney Solutions more if you need any repairs done to your chimney. Joe took time out of his already busy day to fit me in and repair damages on my chimney so that I was up to code before closing on my house. He was timely, personable, and best of all very skilled at what he does. All in all a great experience.”
“We were extremely pleased with our experience with Guardian Chimney Solutions. We had a fireplace liner installed last year and had it cleaned for the first time this summer. Both Joe and Derek were professional, friendly and and prompt. They answered all questions thoroughly and were easy to work with. We would highly recommend this company."
