Keep Water Damage & Nesting Animals At Bay With A Beautiful Custom Chimney Cap Or Copper Chimney Top
As a homeowner, you want to do everything you can to protect your home investment and keep things looking great and standing strong. And there’s one simple way you can do just that — invest in a quality crafted custom chimney cap or copper chimney top.
How does a chimney cap or copper chimney top protect your chimney? It’s installed securely at the top of the flue, which extends up above the chimney chase and crown. Without this top to shield and cover the flue, the flue would be wide open to the elements and all the damage water, critters, and debris can do.
A chimney cap or top will protect your chimney flue:
- Keep it dry and free of water and its damaging effects — Rain, snow, and sleet can cause a lot of chimney damage, from rusted dampers to spalling flue liners and crumbling fireboxes. All of this damage can quickly add up and lead to the need for expensive chimney and fireplace repairs. But simply installing a chimney cap or copper top can save you the frustration and the expense.
- Keep small animals and birds from nesting inside the chimney — Animals and birds, including the federally protected Chimney Swift, may choose your chimney for their next nesting place if there’s no cap or chimney top to stop them. Not only can this be an annoyance for you and a danger for the animals, but it can also lead to chimney damage and health hazards for you and your family. With a well-fitted chimney cap or copper top, you don’t have to worry about this.
- Keep sparks from landing on nearby greenery and sparking a fire — Some of the sparks produced by the fire will inevitably be carried up through the chimney flue in the smoke and hot air, but what you may not realize is that these sparks can cause a fire once outside of your home. When sparks exit the flue, if they land on nearby shrubs, trees, or other areas of the property, it doesn’t take much for them to cause a fire. A chimney cap or copper top with a spark guard or spark arrestor will prevent these dangers altogether.
A well made, properly installed cap or chimney top is an easy and affordable way to prevent unnecessary risk, damage, and cost, and protect and prolong the serviceable life of your chimney. But is your chimney getting the protection it needs?
