Greater Cincinnati Chimney Repair services:


The chimney is comprised of many pieces, the most important of which is the crown. The crown can be thought of like a roof on a house. Both serve to keep water out of the infrastructure.  If you don’t protect the roof, then it will leak and cause major damage to your house and surrounding areas. We will help you protect your crown and enjoy a safe experience with your chimney for the coming years. Save yourself a large expense down the road with some preventative chimney repair. Some Brick masons often top off a chimney with nothing more than basic mortar crowns which will wear down and crack over time.

  • Mortar is a porous substance which will enable water to seep into the cracks. When this water freezes in the winter, it will expand and crack the crown, ultimately letting water into your chimney.
  • Unless this problem is rectified you can expect to see a rapid decay of your entire chimney. When Vonderhaar replaces a crown, or even builds you a new chimney, we use reinforced concrete to guarantee durability and effectiveness. We also enhance the crown with a chemical mixture to cure and hardens the structure. This process ensures your crown will not leak. Not only are our chimneys waterproof, but the mortar mixture we use has an extra level of water proofing to increase the life of your chimney.


Chimney Relining: Click here for our Chimney-Pro Flex Lining System Brochure

Chimneys need relining if they have cracked tiles from a flue fire, any sort of foundation shifting, or missing mortar joints. Chimneys with liners keep gas and heat inside the chimney and help avoid combustible material leaking through your bricks and into your household. If a liner was never installed or is deteriorated, it is imperative that it be replaced. Vonderhaar, your chimney repair Cincinnati company, can fix your chimney up with stainless steel between your flue and the defects in your walls. This will do two things—increase your home’s resale value, and of course, make your home safer.

Crownseal: Click here for our CrownSeal long term solution to stop water intrusion Brochure

Flexible Waterproof Coating
Crownseal forms a waterproof membrane and is made to repair and protect chimney crowns from water leaking into them. Crownseal dries into a concrete or mortar appearance. The other big benefit to using Crownseal is its durability and long-lasting nature. Water damage is a thing of the past with Crownseal because it defends your chimney from the top down and seals the original crown (top). This will save you on extensive repairs down the road, as stopping water intrusion will prevent chimney deterioration, as seen below in the picture of the cracked crown.

Water damaged or cracked chimney crowns can lead to costly chimney repairs. Fight back with CrownSeal—the flexible crown repair formulated to withstand the severe weather and thermal stress that cause cracks. Damaged crowns allow water to deteriorate your masonry and the chimney liner. Years of water intrusion and neglect lead to extensive chimney repairs.

Water Repellent: Click here for our Chimney Water Repellent Brochure

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

Chimney Saver – 10 Year Limited Warranty

Another great option in combination with Crownseal is ChimneySaver. ChimneySaver is a water repellent, not a water sealer. Sealers can damage masonry, and ChimneySaver maintains vapor permeability but ensures it penetrates deep enough to protect masonry from penetration as well. No water repellent can make up for poorly-constructed structures, but ChimneySaver is necessary for when a new liner has been installed, going for up to ten times the protection of typical sealers while maintaining breathability. Not only do we water proof our chimney; we actually add in water proofing to our mixes  to ensure maximum durability. Nobody takes our job as seriously as we do!
