Importance Of Chimney Caps

Chimney Cap Installation & Accessories - Littleton CO - Mountain Man Fireplace and ChimneyChimney caps serve many purposes for your fireplace and chimney. They’re mostly known for keeping water out of your flue, ensuring your masonry stay safe and last for the long haul. Protecting your chimney from water damage is one of the most important things, and a chimney is one of the best way to protect against water.

Chimney caps also protect against animal invasion. Birds, squirrels, raccoons, and other woodland critters love to hunker down in your warm chimney and build nests.
