Caps & Covers
Chimney caps and covers play a crucial role in maintaining the integrity and functionality of your chimney system. A chimney cap acts as a shield, preventing rain, snow, debris, and animals from entering the chimney. It helps keep water out, which can cause extensive damage to the chimney structure over time. By keeping unwanted elements out, chimney caps also help prevent blockages and reduce the risk of chimney fires. Moreover, chimney covers are effective in keeping birds, squirrels, and other animals from nesting inside the chimney, thereby averting potential obstructions and safety hazards.
