A fireplace is a wonderful feature in a home, but without a good chimney¬—and a chimney cap—it will quickly lose its usefulness. Since they are so important to your family’s health and safety, it’s imperative that they be protected.
A good chimney cap not only keeps sparks from getting out, and onto nearby trees or grass, it also keeps rain, leaves, and debris from getting in. Water is a home’s worst enemy, and dried leaves in your flue can obstruct the draft and cause fires in places you don’t want them. Cleaning leaves from a cap is far easier than taking them out of the flue.
Chimneys can look like attractive nesting spots for animals, too. It’s a warm and safe spot to hide from predators. Choose a cap with grating or mesh to keep the critters from hiding in your chimney, and eventually your home!
Increasing Life Expectancy
Improve the draft and make your fireplace work better with a quality cap for your chimney. You can even choose a draft enhancing option to get the best draft possible.
Experts agree that having a properly installed chimney cap can extend the life of your chimney and fireplace. The price is reasonable compared to the value they provide. They are far cheaper than a chimney replacement, a flue repair, or a pest removal specialist!
