Custom Chimney Caps 101
Chimney caps are specialized components designed to fit snugly on top of your chimney. Here are some of the key benefits and features of the custom chimney caps we install throughout the Chattanooga area
Keeps rain out of the flue
Intruding rain can damage your chimney liner, interior chimney masonry, fireplace damper and other parts of the chimney. A custom chimney cap blocks the rain.
Keeps debris and small animals out of the flue
Leaves and twigs from nearby trees and small animals and their nests will create a blockage in your Chattanooga chimney. The result is drafting issues and carbon monoxide backing up into your home. Keep out the junk with a good chimney cap.
Shields the vulnerable concrete chimney crown
The crown at the top of your chimney is prone to cracking over time. When excess water gets into these cracks, eventually it can seep into interior areas of your chimney structure and cause damage. Custom chimney caps shield the crown.
Helps keep sparks and embers from flying out of the chimney
Occasional popping sparks and embers are kept contained with a proper chimney cap. Flying “hot” pieces can land on the roof and in the yard and cause varying degrees of damage.
Rain glides off
Not only are chimney caps highly functional, they look great too. An angled design adds a nice aesthetic touch to your Chattanooga home while channeling water away from the chimney structure.
Don’t Have Any Kind of Flue Cover?
It’s never advisable to operate a fireplace without a secure chimney cap. At the very least, you need a basic flue cover.
The many problems that a custom chimney cap prevents can easily become very expensive issues, leading to unsafe operating conditions, reduced fireplace efficiency and possible safety risks for you and your family.
Of all the protective components in a typical chimney system, a custom chimney cap is definitely one of the most important. It’s one of the true “essentials” for the safe and efficient operation of a chimney.
