Installing the Right Chimney Cap
Come to our company for chimney repair, maintenance, and installation services. Our professionals have the skill and knowledge to install the right rain cap for your chimney. A chimney cap is a metal structure that consists of a top made of stainless or galvanized steel or copper over a mesh screen. This effectively blocks animals from climbing down into your chimney, as well as water from pouring in and damaging the structure of the chimney itself. It is essential to get the right size chimney cap. One that is too big or too small does not do its job properly and is a waste of your money. Rely on our experienced professionals to install a sturdy rain cap of the proper size so you receive all the benefits of this essential chimney accessory.
Prevent Down Drafts with a Chimney Cap
Another advantage of installing a chimney cap is to prevent down drafts, which are blasts of air that travel down the chimney and into the fireplace. This causes smoke to blow right into the house. These same blasts of air can be extremely cold and contribute to the need for increased energy consumption just to maintain a comfortable temperature. Stay comfortable and keep your house smoke free with the installation of a chimney cap.
