For Well-Built, Properly Installed Chimney Caps, Turn to Us
Every chimney needs a chimney cap to help it stay in good condition. And if the cap isn’t built to withstand rains, harsh winds, curious (and determined) woodland critters, and the like, then it’s not likely going to last long – and neither is the chimney.
Fortunately, we install quality products that last through it all.
Qualities of a Reliable Chimney Cap
A chimney cap that’s built right and properly fitted will stop animals, leaves, twigs, debris, and water from entering, while also working to prevent downdrafts.
It should be built from the right materials. Some chimney caps are made from weaker metals and, while the price point of these may be more appealing, they won’t actually offer long-lasting protection. You’ll need to replace it more often, and your chimney will be more prone to damage too.
It should be built to direct water away. A cap that allows water to pool up and settle isn’t going to last long. Before long, rust will form, which will eventually lead to cracks, holes, and deterioration.
It should be sized appropriately. If the cap isn’t professionally and properly sized to the flue, damage and buildup is bound to occur. And addressing repairs related to these issues can get expensive fast.
It should be professionally fitted. A cap – even a quality-constructed one – that isn’t installed by a certified chimney expert will not likely offer the protection you’re hoping for. Even a minor mistake can invite in water and debris, and before long both the cap and the chimney will begin to break down.
