Chimney caps are a crucial, yet frequently overlooked component of a healthy chimney. While covering your chimney’s flue with an open screen that lets hot air and gas escape but keeps outside elements from entering, chimney caps protect your chimney in several ways, and also add beauty and uniqueness to your home. At The Chimney Man, we’re proud of our custom-made chimney caps, and we’re available to build and install a beautiful, well-designed chimney cap for your home.
Typical chimney caps are made of galvanized metal, copper or stainless steel. They can be elaborate, custom-made pieces, or store-bought items designed to fit a variety of chimney types and sizes. The chimney cap is the first point of failure for chimneys: the metal may weaken and sometimes corrode, and the fasteners that hold it in place may eventually fail. For this reason and more, it’s important to purchase a quality chimney cap that you can depend on.
Chimney caps are of critical importance. Leaving your chimney uncapped can result in water damage to your chimney flue, or create a situation that creates a potential for blockages. An open chimney is attractive to animals, which may build a nest in your chimney. Any potential for a clog or blockage in your chimney should be taken very seriously, since it could cause carbon monoxide to enter the living spaces of your home.
