Cover Your Flue With A Brand New Chimney Cap!

When it comes to keeping water out of your chimney system, your crown or chase pan does a good portion of the work. But even still, your flue will extend past your crown or chase pan and will require a chimney cap if it’s to stay dry.

A chimney cap is a component of the chimney system that is designed to fit snugly atop your flue. Whether you have a single flue system or a multi-flue system, there are caps specially made to cover the flue and keep out rain, wind, insects, animals, debris and other elements.

  • Rain – Rain and other moisture can easily enter an uncapped flue, causing rust, corrosion and decay within the chimney, firebox and surrounding walls.
  • Wind – Strong winds and downdrafts can significantly decrease the comfort and temperature of your home and can lead to odor and smoke problems even when your chimney is not in use.
  • Insects – Once insects get into your chimney, they can get into your home. The last thing you want is an insect infestation!
  • Animals – Animals love the warmth and safety of your chimney. But not only are they a nuisance, they bring along diseases, waste, flammable nesting materials and babies which often get trapped in the chimney and die.
  • Debris – Loose branches and leaves can easily blow down into an uncapped flue causing blockages and creating a fire hazard.

Is your chimney’s flue protected from the above threats? If it’s uncapped or if your existing chimney cap is damaged or has come loose, it’s not!

What Will My Chimney Cap Look Like And How Long Will It Last?

Chimney caps are typically made of stainless steel, galvanized metal or copper and come in a variety of sizes and styles. The longevity of your chimney cap will depend largely upon the material you choose. Copper and stainless steel are the most durable options, while galvanized metal, which is less expensive, is also less resistant to rust and other decay.
