Chimney Caps Custom Built for Your Home

chimney cap is used for true masonry chimneys.  It consists of a case, a screen, and a lid. It is not only decorative, but it protects your chimney and fireplace from rain and invading wildlife.

A chase cap is found on pre-fab fireplaces.  The fireplace will have a pipe running up through the top of the roof.  Many pre-fab chimneys look like masonry chimneys on the outside, but actually just have a wooden box on the inside instead of brick.  A chase cap will fit securely over the chimney top, kind of like a shoe-box lid fits onto a shoe box.  It will cover the entire top of the chimney and should come down a few inches over the side.  A chase cap prevents water from entering the chimney.

Why do I need one?

Caps help prevent the invasion of unwanted animals. An open chimney is like an open window to a critter, and without a cap, the critter may decide to take up residence within your fireplace. Don’t wait until you hear scratching to protect your chimney!

A cap will also help to keep the rain out of your chimney.  Rain and moisture can cause internal structural damage to a chimney by corroding the mortar and bricks. It can rust dampers, produce mold, and cause the walls and ceiling around your fireplace to weaken.
