Not having a rain cap on your chimney is just asking for trouble. Rainwater will accumulate in the smoke shelf area, stove fireplace or heater which can cause extensive damage. This can cause corrosion of the masonry structure, rusting of metal parts and destroy your walls or ceilings.
A chimney rain cap can also stop hot ashes and sparks from damaging your roofing materials. They also keep birds, bats, and other wildlife from entering your home.
Chimney rain caps can be custom built from galvanized steel, stainless steel and aluminum. They come in a wide assortment of colors so they match your existing decor.
Don’t forget to have your fireplaces and chimneys inspected for soot and creosote. If not removed regularly, these highly flammable deposits can cause a chimney fire.
