What is a chimney cap, and why do I need one?
A chimney cap consists of a case, a screen, and a lid. It’s not only decorative, but it protects your chimney and fireplace from rain, leak debris, and intruding animals.
Rain can damage the stainless steel liner and damper in your chimney. Water can soak the inside and produce mold, as well as erode the mortar. Deterioration could cause the chimney to need replacement. Thus, a properly built and installed cap will protect against water damage, and help save you from costly repairs in the future.
Furthermore, chimney 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 cap your chimney!
