If you’ve been having problems with your chimney cap… we can help! We carry a wide variety of venting and caps. Chimney caps help prevent from water entering the chimney, keeps animals from entering our home and helps protect the roof from burning embers that can start a house fire. When water enters the chimney it can cause deterioration problems within the structure. When mixed with certain types of soot, it can become even more harmful. If you have water running down during the cold season where we’re prone to freezing… this can cause your crown and liner to freeze and crack the structure and mortar. Keeping animals out keeps the chimney free from blockages. Blockages can cause soot, smoke and carbon monoxide to backup into the home. Since the chimney cap is at the top of the vent, you can get burning embers from your fire all the way to the top! These burning embers can cause chimney and house fires and damages to your roof. A chimney cap helps avoid those issues when you have a spark arrestor that prevents those embers from escaping!
