Why Install A Chimney Cap?
No matter what type of chimney cap you install, there are countless benefits they can bring your home and chimney. The first and most obvious benefit is their ability to keep water out of your flue. When water and excess moisture is allowed into your chimney, countless issues are likely to form, such as rust, rot, clogs, stains, and a whole lot more. Your brickwork will deteriorate more quickly, and you’ll invite even bigger problems should the freeze/thaw process occur.
With a chimney cap in place, water won’t have the opportunity to enter and cause damage. Along with this, chimney caps keep animals from entering your chimney and building nests to raise their young. The materials they bring in (or sometimes the animals themselves) will block up your chimney and cause you lots of problems down the line.
On top of it all, chimney caps serve as spark arrestors, stopping stray sparks from escaping onto your roof and potentially causing a fire to start, and they help block downdrafts, too. Having one installed is an affordable and easy step for helping your home and fireplace stay a whole lot safer. If your chimney is missing one, call in our experts to help you out today!
