Recent Chimney Cap Replacement in Oswego, IL

We were called to fix a chimney leak after Affordable Roofing (Aurora,IL) referred the homeowners to us. Turns out that they were a previous sweeping customer from the 80s. But 30 years of weather had deteriorated the sill stones that were used to close off the chimney top and they were just sitting in place because of gravity. Luckily, the beautiful stonework was still in great shape. Our company routinely repairs and fixes these chimney leaks.

Derek and Paul replaced the sill stones with a proper cement chimney cap/ crown and installed a new flue tile and a rain cover. The cement chimney cap is poured in place and has a slight slope to the outside with an overhang to shed rain water off the chimney. Hard to see but the flues are separated from the new cement by an expansion joint and there is a bond break between the top cement and the stonework. This should allow many more years of usage for this great looking chimney. We do about 250 of these repairs per year.

“Yesterday Terry and his crew came out and inspected, repaired, and cleaned my fireplace. This is the first time that I have used their services. They were very efficient, they totally cleaned up after themselves.  They educated me better on the fireplace that I have in my home. They did an amazing job! Also, they had heard that I was having a drain issue in my basement and referred a plumber to me - how awesome is that?! Highly recommend!!!! I live in Aurora township - on the border of Montgomery. Thanks so much!”
