Chimney Cap Installation & Accessories
A chimney without a chimney cap is like a knight without a shield — it’s out there, battling the elements, with nothing protecting one of its most vulnerable points.
A chimney cap provides much-needed protection to your flue, not only against the constant barrage of rain, snow and sleet, but against the various critters that prefer to reside in chimneys.
What Will Happen If I Don’t Have A Chimney Cap?
- Water can erode your masonry and even make its way into the interior of your home.
- Animals can bring a lot of unwanted elements into your chimney like fur and feces.
- Birds tend to carry in combustible debris, building nests that clog up your flue and create a fire hazard. Plus, federally-protected chimney swifts love to nest in chimneys, and if they choose to nest in yours, they legally can’t be removed. They have to leave on their own, and you have to wait them out. If you don’t take proper precautions, they’ll continue to come back, as chimney swifts are known for returning to the same place to nest.
Bottom line: You don’t want anything turning your chimney into a home, and chimney caps help stop that from happening.
