We Repair & Replace Chimney Caps
Every fireplace should have a proper chimney cap. A chimney cap is usually a black or silver manufactured box that sits on top of your chimney. The chimney cap is an important feature of your chimney system and serves several important purposes, including:
- Protecting your roof from sparks and burning debris that could blow out of your chimney and land on your roof or in nearby trees, causing a fire.
- Keeping rainwater out of your chimney. Water is extremely destructive to your chimney system. If moisture mixes with the creosote on the inside of your chimney, it eats away at the mortar in your chimney walls. Water can also rust the metal components inside your chimney.
- Stopping birds, squirrels and other animals from getting inside your home through the chimney.
- Keeping leaves, branches and other outdoor debris from getting into your home.
Obviously, a damaged chimney cap can cause a variety of problems. Mr. Smokestack Chimney Service specializes in repairing chimney caps, using the most advanced materials and techniques available. For all our different styles of caps and to see what we offer, click here.
