chimney crown repair. gap between flues


Hi, not sure if this should be posted in another category!

I have 2 flues in my chimney.
On the crown there is a visible 2 inch gap/space/hole between them.

I plan to add a cap but wanted to repair/fill the gap first.

What is the best way to repair this ?
I have a small photo of the crown if anyone is interested!

thanks

Hard to see seems to have a shadow, but just mix some concrete and patch.

Andy,

I May be a little late with this but maybe this could help you out. There is a product called "felxible crown" for the repair of chimeny crowns. It's a latex product that if your half-a**** handy you can do yourself. I learned about it when the local chimeny sweep company came out and suggested an application be applied. They quoted a price of $180. I was able to purchase a tub of the product and did it mayself. the product is expensive (180 range) but when in with other neighbors and my cost was 50 bucks.

Best of luck, rredogg
